The Drive To The Summit Of Babadağ – Scary Or Mesmerising? You Choose…

In our last Babadağ post, we wrote about the event that took us up there; the live music performance as part of the Fethiye Classical Music Festival in memory of cellist, Benyamin Sönmez.

Turkey 2012 – The Online Year That Was…

Our final blog post of 2012 and we thought we'd keep it light and do something a bit different at the same time.

When The Sun Goes Down – Six Izmir Photos

Memories from our time in Izmir: there are a lot of them. Food more than played it's part by way of the söğüş, Çeşme kumrusu and the stuffed mussels.

Istanbul: Egyptian Spice Bazaar In Black & White

Istanbul has done what it does best and once again pushed itself to the forefront of our minds.

Izmir Travel Photo: An Aegean Sunset – And A Question
