Off to Turkey – Watch This Space to Explore with Us!

I am soon off to Turkey to host an exciting culinary and cultural tour of my homeland! Me and 11 enthusiastic travelers and foodies, some of whom had been kindly at my Turkish cooking classes in Texas, will be exploring the many wonders of Turkey; so looking forward to it:)

We shall be exploring fascinating historical sites like Hagia Sophia and Topkapi Palace in Istanbul, the battle fields of Gallipoli in Dardanelles, the ancient Greco-Roman city Ephesus at the Aegean coast, St Peter’s Grotto and the Mosaic Museum in Antioch (the world’s 2nd biggest) and many more. We all are very excited!

We shall loose ourselves at the wonderful smell, spices, colours at the Spice Market and Grand Bazaar,

We shall enjoy the wonderful Turkish cuisine like the locals do, and even better, will learn how to make it:)

So please watch this space to check out all the many wonders that we will be experiencing at my homeland in the next few weeks. I will try and post news from Turkey, my homeland, whenever I can and I hope you enjoy it:)

Best wishes for safe travels to all – Iyi Yolculuklar!

    I can hardly wait to read your Blog about it….I love Turkey. I've been travelling to Turkey now for 25 years and I love it there as my husband is from Izmir. The food in Turkey is amazing…and I've learned a lot and cook it quite often.
    Wish I could go with you. :-)))

    Spent three days in area and two full days visiting the park and memorials were not enough. Should have had a third. Used dardanel troy Cannakale as a base and left car at Kilitbahir. Our visit was focussed on the British landings in the Cape Hellas area and Morto Bay as well as Gully Ravine. There was more than enough to see with British, French and Turkish sites. It is a must to read up on the Gallipoli campaign before you go. Pretty spectacular and difficult terrain was dwarfed by a second visiting Suvla and Anzac areas Spectacularly beautiful and daunting/terrible for those who fought there. September is a quiet time for a visit with good weather although very dry. Well worth the visit Thank you all so much.
