In 2008 I visited Turkey with Ancient Kingdoms Holidays. This exotic country offered memorable sights and experiences, and I have returned much inspired from my travels.
Istanbul, with its blue Iznik tiled mosques and palaces, beautifully woven antique silks and the myriad of colours and smells in the Spice Bazaar, lay siege to the senses and show the wealth and importance of this ancient hub of trade. Istanbul has become a very lively, cosmopolitan city with endless possibilities. Contrast this with the surreal fairy tale landscape of Cappadocia and Pamukkale’s beautiful and delicate ‘White Cotton Castle’, nature’s building that well pre-dates the impressive Greco-Roman city of Ephesus.
