Oct 5, 2013 - The Castle at Bodrum

Bodrum is a pretty resort and yachting port situated on a peninsula facing south from the Turkish mainland to the Aegean sea. Formerly named Halicarnassus, Bodrum has 3,000 plus years of civilization. It's been the site of one of the Seven wonders of the Ancient World and was the seat of Kings & Queens. Today, it has its own unique charm with gleaming whitewashed buildings clinging to the hillsides and along very narrow little streets. Undoubtedly, the pride of Bodrum is the Castle of St. Peter dating to 1437 and built by the Knights of St....

May 7, 2012 - Izmir, Selcuk & Bodrum

Bon matin! Je poursuis mon trip, direction sud, cote ouest (mer Égée) de la Turquie. Aujourd’hui je pars de Bodrum pour Fethiye. D’Istanbul, j’ai fait Izmir (Urla & Manisa), Selcuk (Éphèse) et Bodrum de là ou je vous écris. Izmir, la troisième plus grande ville de la Turquie, avec une population d’environ 2,5 M d’habitants. Cette ville n’a rien d’extraordinaire si ce n’est que son bord de mer, très bien aménagé. Promenade, restos, terrasses, cafés, bar etc. Du même coup cela a créé comme 2 villes en une. Ceux qui peuvent se permettent le...

Apr 2, 2012 - Bodrum, Turkey

Bodrum Wiki Info Bodrum After determining that no buses go regularly S. end of the island (one at 12:45pm) due to being out-of--season, we took a city bus to the Asklepieion Archaelogical site. Info Asklepieion Archaelogical site Being Monday it was closed but we had a nice walk in the countryside from the bus stop. Finally had crepes in celebration of ending our Greek islands adventures! Said our goodbyes' to the friendly folks we stayed with, very nice but forgot to get their info (never did get any receipt which usually has all that...

Aug 21, 2010 - Bodrum, Turkey

TURKEY is absolutely UNREAL!!!! I only have 10 days until this whole adventure is over (fastest 7 months of my life)...so, I will have to post some updates at a later time. What I can say is this.... We shop in the markets in Bodrum (A LOT), we tan (ALL THE TIME) by the unreal pool, we watch movies overlooking the sea, we munch on local "exotic" fruits (and pickles...), drink more water than I have ever drank, and basically just have a great time enjoying the 35 degree weather! We are excited to go to Halikarnas and do a boat trip around...

Jul 5, 2010 - Vacatıon from the vacatıon

Turkey contınues to amaze - beautıful country and people. But even wıth our great tıme, a break ıs nıce - but more of that ın a mınute. The ruıns and archeolgıcal sıtes here are second to none - as good or better than anythıng we saw ın Italy and, accordıng to our tourmates, better than Greece! Another thıng ıs that Turkey ıs stıll not overly 'tourısty'. On Saturday we stopped near the cıty of Sardıs. Thıs ıs the area where coıns were fırst used, ın the 5th century BC. There ıs a structure there - a gymnasıum - whıch ıs a school and...

Sep 26, 2009 - Bodrum

Today I woke up a little later and after a great breakfast at my hostel, I checked out. I left my stuff there so that I could go and say good-bye to my friends at the carpet shop. I was sad to leave and they were all trying to get me to stay, including everyone at the hostel. I must of had about 7 or 8 cups of tea on my way out. I was also treated to a traditional Turkish breakfast at the shop and it was incredible. So I left Selcuk and headed for Bodrum. It's suppose to be the Turkish St. Tropez. I got into Bodrum right after sunset. It...

My European Trip

Apr 24, 2008 - Bodrum

We made the trip to Bodrum solely for visiting the Museum of Underwater Archeology. The museum is housed in a castle built during the 15th century. The museum has the biggest collection of amphorae in the word. Amphorae are large clay canisters used for transporting wine, olive oil, fish, etc. Some of the amphorae displayed in the museum have been dated back to 14th century BC. Along with the amphorae, the museum showed how the shipwrecks were excavated. The castle also made for good time wandering about, checking out the dungeon and taking...

Jun 14, 2007 - Bodrum (Turkey

Well, we are back in Turkey after a few days in Greece. So far we have had a great time in both, however we can not get over how nice the people of Turkey are. They are very helpful and are very pleasant. We hoped a bus to the Kos Ferry terminal this am and 1 1/2 hours later we were in Bodrum. All went very smooth until we discovered we were on the wrong ferry. We quickly made and exit and moved on. As most of the towns we visited Bodrum is just or even better that the others. They have a huge marina with hundreds of sail boats and every...

Turkey and Beyond

Dec 20, 2006 - Datca Peninsula, TR

The Datca Peninsula is a narrow, mountainous finger of land that stretches from Marmaris for about 100 Km into the Aegean Sea between the Greek islands of Kos and Rhodes. Because there is only one narrow road leading out to the point at Knidos and back it must dissuade many tourists - we found it quiet, unspoiled and absolutely stunning. As we drove along the narrow highway, we were reminded of the words to the old John Denver song, "You fill up my senses...." as it is a perfect way to describe this place: the taste of salty feta cheese...

Aug 12, 2006 - Last days of sun and fun!

Marieke and I headed home today. Gotta tell you, must have got a bug or ate something that didn't agree with us, since we have both not been the most fit since Wednesday and that is the most unpleasant experience when having to fly if one needs a washroom every 10-15 minutes!! For the last days, we spent alot of time on the beach suntanning. Gotta say we have both worked up nice tans, although not without a couple of sunburns but those have been dealt with as well. We also spent one day touring the little town of Yalikavak. Great fun that!...

Aug 7, 2006 - Lazying about in the sun of Turkey!

Our week lazing about in our All-Inclusive hotel in Turkey is now over! We arrived Saturday late in the afternoon and after trying to find some food we decided to try our luck at getting a suntan, so spent the time lying about on our sunbeds until it was time for dinner. Dinner was just a sort buffet style, which for our first experience was really good. Yesterday (Sunday) we also spent the day on the beach. It is vitally important that we get a good tan, otherwise no one would know we have been on vacation!! So again we spent the day on...
