Turkish Delights

There were many delights in Turkey. I finally tasted Turkish Delight, the tempting sweet that I first read about when I was nine and reading The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. The history, architecture, food and people were delightful too. It was a very diverse trip, with mosques and history in Istanbul, ancient ruins at Ephesus, five heavenly days of sailing the Aegean Sea from Marmaris to Gocek, and three magical days in Cappadocia seeing the fairy houses, caves and monasteries carved in the rocks. The kids said, “Thank you for bringing us to Turkey.” and “Thank you for the boat and the kayak.”

We were thankful too for the opportunity to travel to another new country, experience new cultures, and mostly to share the experience with the Roy family, a delightful family that are now life-long friends. (Steve is also a delightful blogger and apparently has more time and better internet service back in Seville than I do here in Greece! Click here to read all the details of our trip on his blog.
