1994 - Turkey

A failed attempt to sort out my head...

This was supposed to be a holiday away from various domestic issues, but was not a success.

I stayed in the beach resort of Altinkum. It is nice enough but not much to do, although the Temple of Apollo is within walking distance.

Temple of Apollo. This is just up the road and is a nice walk. The place was empty when I got there, strange when it is an important archaeological site.

Ephesus. This is one of Turkey's most famous ancient sites. I took a day trip to the city via Selçuk. It is a very interesting place with lots of excavations, crumbly bits, and tourists.

Kusadasi. This was a night out in Kusadasi with typical Turkish food and dancing.

At this point, I was ill so I arranged with the tour company to get me back to the UK a week early. I then spent the second week at home.
