Turkey was a pleasant surprise.
After the exhausting day we had in Athens,
I was hesitant to hop on board to another long hot tour.
Luckily, we had a private tour of this special place that included
A/C and a funny little tour guide named Ali who sounded just like Franc from
Father of the Bride. So even though we couldn't understand much of what he said,
it was a enjoyable day!
My favorite part was Mary's house, where we went first.
It was her last home and some believed she died there.
Now they've turned it into a small chapel.
It was a very sweet, spiritual place.
After touring the home, we were able to see ancient Ephesus
including the Library of Celsus and the theatre where Paul preached.
Despite the heat we really enjoyed it!
There were also some random stops at a Turkish snack shop
and a leather fashion show, where Sam and Lauren
got to be super sexy runway models for the day.
Thanks Turkey for being so interesting!
We hope to go back and see what else you have to offer.
