Eskişehir To Ankara By Yüksek Hızlı Tren – Yeah, We’d Do That Again!

We’re big advocates of Turkey’s intercity buses and travel on them all the time – hopefully, we’ll be on this Fethiye to Istanbul bus in November – but we’ve got to say, if there’s a train on offer, we’re there! We love us a bit of a train journey and we were excited when we …

Eskişehir – A City Of Sculptures

All good cities need a smattering of fun or eye-catching sculptures to keep the passers-by entertained as far as we’re concerned, and Turkey does this form of street art very well. There’s not much we’d suggest for improvements to Fethiye…but a few random sculptures dotted around town would just put the icing on the cake. …

Vural Sokak, Eskişehir: Socialising At Social Pub

How many times have we sang the praises of Foursquare on this blog? Too many, probably – but we’re going to do it again.

Wandering Around The Houses Of Odunpazarı, Eskişehir’s Eski Şehir

As far as tourism goes, Odunpazarı is arguably the flagship area of Eskişehir. Sitting on a hillside, overlooking the city, its colourful 19th century Ottoman houses are slowly being restored, and the tourists – mainly domestic – are starting to arrive… “Eskişehir’s sights do not mount to a great deal and it’s not a place …

Eating In Eskişehir: Çibörek Or Çiğ Börek; It Still Tastes The Same

Before we set off on the first leg of this year’s Turkey travels, we asked people on our Facebook page if there was any special food we shouldn’t miss while we were in Eskişehir. For us, visiting a new place is as much about the food as it is the scenery. In Izmir, we loved …
