World Travel – Turkey in Asia (Anatolia, Ankara, Izmir)

Our next Port of Call officially puts us on the Asia side of Turkey; making port in Kuşadası Turkey. High on the hill over-looking the port is the statue of Atatürk. Our goal at this port is to head to the town of Kusadasi to visit the ruins of Ephesus. The most famous structure here is the Celsus Library. The Gospel of John might have been written here.

World Travel – Turkey in Europe (Istanbul) 2007

Now on our small cruise ship, cross the Aegean Sea and enter the channel passing Çanakkale, Turkey until we reach the Sea of Marmara before docking in Istanbul, Turkey; on the Europe side. We spend time visiting the major sites such as Hagia Sophia, the Blue Masque, and Topkapi Palace. We did cross over the bride to the Asian side by bus but I will count that via another blog entry later…
