Budapest – A Tale of Two Cities
Sight of Turkey 2014 – Antalya, Denizli, Izmir
Back in 2014, I took a 12-day trip to Turkey. We landed in Istanbul late in the evening from where we took a connecting flight to Antalya. My journey from Antalya, the fifth most populous city in Turkey, and across the southwest coast of Turkey, was rewarded with breath-taking views of the Taurus mountains and the Mediterranean. The highlights for me really were visits to the ancient Greco-Roman ruins of Hierapolis, sights and sounds of the Aegean region, Turkish food and most especially the awe-inspiring Pamukkale (Cotton Castle), formed over a millennia by the flowing of thermal spring water.
