The ferry was about 40 minutes late leaving Rhodes, which closed my 45 minute window to catch the 10:30 bus to Dalaman - the only bus!!

Arriving in Safranbolu at 6 AM on a Sunday was interesting...everything was completely silent and empty....I guess we should expect that considering that the city has around 30.000 habitants! Safranbolu is a city that has hosted many civilizations such as Roman, Byzantine and

Hello Stranger. Yes, it has been a while, I know, but I have a good excuse or two or three. Let me tell you all about them.
This past June as I sat wondering if it was too early to start planning a trip home to see the folks (it had only been 4 months since I was last there) that trusty voice popped into my head and said "Wait!" So I did.
