  1. David, thank you for visiting my site. Ha Ha! The second time I was in Turkey was during the emergency in the aftermath of the failed military coup. Turkey’s a wonderful place as is Greece. Did you go to the Maritime Museum in Istanbul – ah, Istanbul, my favourite city in all the world! (closely followed up by Athens). And to the underwater archaeological museum in Bodrum? You ask if you really fully appreciate your visit through Turkey and Greece; well David, as with any place there’s so much to absorb, so many new sights, sounds, smells, tastes, hurdles of communication, gymnastics of getting to where we want to go, alien experiences, it’s perhaps only in retrospect when we’re safely home that we might think that, especially with increasing knowledge. Go again!

    1. Hi Elizabth……..It would appear that perhaps I needed your knowledge of Turkey, and of course Istanbul.
      Like I am sure the vast majority of tourists, we are taken where the organising company considers we should be taken
      Nothing of course beats local knowledge.

  2. A trillion curses on your head, I wandered into the ‘office’ where I store the computer/s, at an unearthly time this morning , after saying the magic words to bring ‘the curse’ to life I thought yes, I should have a look at Elizabeths blog.
    Three quarters of an hour later, glancing at my superior, smart watch which controls everything but my very being, it tells me…………..go go go, sustinence is required, did I really fully appreciate my visit through Turkey and Greece,I am beginning to wonder…….Que Sara Sara.
