Last night I returned from spending a week in Turkey and wanted to share what I saw. The country was amazing. I found that as I was planning it everyone wondered why Turkey, and now that I have gone I ask, "Why not?!" There is so much there to see and experience. From the sites to the sounds, the food and people--the culture is just incredible. I would recommend a visit to anyone who is wondering where they should go next... I would be willing to go back. But for those of you that won't make it, here are some of the things I saw.
The Temple of Artemis was quite destroyed, but this column was huge and somehow still standing.
The Bosphorus bridge connects the European and Asian sides of Istanbul (the only city on 2 continents).
All in all the trip was worth every moment and every penny. I didn't see even a small portion of everything there is to see in this wonderful country of Turkey. But what I did see was enough to show me the beauty that exists in places you wouldn't expect.
