A Coastal Walk Through History

I am in Al?nca, a small village located directly along the Lycian Way, a 540 kilometer footpath that runs the length of Turkey’s southern coast. The footpath meanders through many historical sites of ancient Lycia, which was once the name for the Mediterranean Tekke Peninsula that juts out from Turkey’s southern coast. The trail begins in Fethiye and ends in Antalya, both hubs for tourism during the busy summer months from April to October. Small towns along the coast are sprinkled with guest houses, shops, restaurants and inviting harbors, beckoning to the wooden Gület boats filled with tourists to tie their ropes and unload the promise of free flowing euros and dollars. The Lycian Way passes through many of these villages and towns and hikers have easy and consistent access to guest houses, hostels, campgrounds and restaurants with fresh and homemade village recipes.

KAYSERI: A GEM ON YOUR WAY TO KAPADOKYA!

Kapadokya is one of Turkey’s most visited touristic destinations, it is a magnificent land with breathtaking scenery and unlimited adventures and it is most definitely worth the visit. But our article today is about a city most of those who have had the pleasure of visiting Kapadokya happened to pass by on their way. Touristic guides tend to either ignore it or just give you a brief explanation about it. It is the city of Kayseri.

Must see Top Kapi Palace

Top Kapi Palace also had a library, school for sultans, rooms for maids, and many more rooms. Also, we can find a gorgeous garden, from a garden we have a view on the Bosphorus. Garden is big and decorated with very nice Asia flowers, trees, and other plants. It is also has a huge kitchen, where you can find an old silver and gold fork and knives. Some of them were a present from other empires to Ottoman Empire and some of them were made in Turkey. In the kitchen, we can find rich historical materials that show how ottoman empire‘s and ottoman people ate in Ottoman empire. Also, there is a big museum with the paintings jewelry and other precious belongings that belonged to the royal family. In Museum I saw many wonderful paintings, art pieces and also the sort of king David and prophet Moses stick.

Istanbul: New Land of 3rd Wave Coffee

Specialty Coffee is the opposite of traditional Italian Coffee. Italian Coffee is always dark roasted, very heavy and bitter. Because of roasting too much i mean dark roast, beans are lost their characteristics and natural aromas. That is a thing that we don’t like in 3rd wave and that is why Specialty Coffee cannot be dar roast. I am not saying i don’t like Italian, i just don’t prefer but also i never want to be rude about an old tradition. It’s something i respect. I have to admit that, they are the only people who cared about coffee too much. With all respect, they made coffee a tradition. I admire that. Coffee comes from Africa and then Turkey but we didn’t protect it as a culture. They did. So, what can say. I never forget the marvellous taste of Cafe Freddo. Two shots of espresso, sugar and ice! Tasty! I’ve been two times in Italy, at my first time, i discovered it and almost got hard attack! I guess i drank 10 glasses of Cafe Freddo. Couldn’t stop myself. If you go to Italy, don’t forget to drink it in a good place. It’s cheap already. 2 Euros now i guess.

3. Relleno negro:

On first glance, relleno negro seems hardly edible or fit for human consumption. It is definitely not the most visually appetising dish whatsoever. However, don’t let appearances deter you and make sure you try this fascinating, slightly spicy, traditional Yucatecan dish. As implied by its name, relleno negro is completely black, almost like charcoal, which apparently is due to the toasted chillies. It is ideally served with turkey but I tried mine with chicken and it tasted perfectly delicious. It’s also served with hard-boiled eggs and a special type of giant meatball where the meat is covering an egg. I had mine with tortillas but you cant also have them as tortas (rolls) or tacos.

Hagia Sophia

Next and something that you definitely should not miss on any trip to turkey no matter your budget is a trip to the Hagia Sophia, having studied a little history of art in Portugal this was a very exciting time yet quite oddly emotional too. The Hagia Sophia was a Greek Orthodox Christian patriarchal basilica (a church) and was later converted into an Ottoman mosque so you can only imagine the history that is here and understandably is now a museum.

Girls paradise in Turkey

One sunny afternoon she came with a suggestion that we should go to Turkey. I will be completely honest and say that I didn’t like that idea because in my mind I couldn’t connect nice beaches, delicious cocktails and hot guys with Turkey.

About Turkey : food, people and places

Finally this year we have managed to bring to the life our summer holiday plan. Because we desired this so much.

Firstly we’ve traveled from Istanbul to Izmir with a shared car. We find this transportation from Bla Bla Car website. Its really useful for whom wants to travel cheaper than the normal bus or plane. As we mentioned our vacation started from Izmir city. We also have to mention that was our first trip to the south part of the Turkey for a long time and we look forward to share all of our feelings about the places we got chance to visit and lots of gained experiences in this journey. Our trip beginned from Izmir but we want to tell about the beauty in Antalya. Lets start from the amazing Ka? (pronounced as Kash) city!

The hidden paradise of Ayval?k – Turkey

Because it is a developing summer holiday destination, I believe Ayval?k still keeps the essence of its unique Aegean culture. Being less known than the more popular southern touristic destinations in Turkey (like Bodrum, Çe?me, Antalya, etc.) actually gives this small town a great advantage to avoid all of the holiday rip-offs and an advantage to see an entirely different culture.

Magical city of Istanbul

First time I visited Turkey was 3 years ago. At that time i didn’t have idea that the biggest city in Turkey, Istanbul, will be partially my home during the upcoming years. I didn’t have idea that bystanders will try to convert me to Islam, that I will make so many friends there and that I will be choking with food while trying to ignore all the guys who inexhaustible throwing compliments. They do that, not because I am a top model, but because they think if you are coming out of the Turkish borders, it is enough to say “ooh, how beautiful you are” and you will fall for them… Yeah right. By the way, this is not a rule with everyone there, that is what my Turkish friends explained me.

A Cup of Turkish Coffee at Pierre Loti Cafe,Istanbul

A visit to Istanbul, Turkey  is a sojourn to a place where beauty intermingles with thousand year old civilization. One should never miss a chance to sit, relax and enjoy a cup of thick Turkish Coffee while enjoying the wonderful landscape of this city, and the best place to do this is at Pierre Loti Cafe in Eyup, Istanbul.  Located in Eyup, a district named after a friend of Muhammad, Eyup Ansari, the cafe is popularly known as a place where a French Naval Officer, Pierre Loti wrote his famous piece of novel, “Aziyade”. Aziyade retells a romantic tale between Pierre Loti and a harem girl, Aziyade. At the very place where Pierre sat down and contemplated about his amorous affair, this cafe stands. Aside of its romantic background, the cafe is better known for its commanding position overlooking the Golden Horn, a horn-shaped strait dividing the European side of  Istanbul. The scenery is stunning. The glimmering sparkles of the Golden Horn, the green pastures of the river bank along with the mosques and urban buildings form a beautiful sight worthy for visitors to sit and have a sip of its well-known coffee.

Why visit Elaz??, Turkey?

Elaz??, Turkey Elaz?? is a small city located in the Eastern part of Turkey, in the region called Anatolia. If you take a look from above, the city seems as an inland peninsula, surrounded by lakes and reservoirs. It is a city covered in history, legends and beautiful landscapes. If you plan to go there, try to eat everything you can, I promise, you won’t regret it. The cuisine is simply amazing, especially if you are a lover of spicy food and besides, you have a sweet tooth.

Legends and Travelling

Oludeniz Fethiye, Turkey

During Spring break March 2016, we (myself, wife and two kids) decided to go to Fethiye, Turkey. We started our journey from Istanbul, took a plane from Sabiha Gokcen International Airport (Asian Side) to Dalaman Airport (closest airport to Fethiye). We booked our flights via Pegasus Airline; it was a nice and comfortable journey that took an hour to reach Dalaman Airport. At the airport, we took the public bus which transfer passengers from airport to Fethiye City, took an hour to reach Fethiye Bus Station. The bus was air-conditioned with nice and comfortable seats (Fare 10 TL per person). The city center is pretty close to the bus-stop, then we took a taxi (30 TL) to our hotel and within 10 minutes we reached our hotel.
