Merhaba from Turkey! Here I am in Sulçek, after havıng arrıved vıa an overnıght ferry from Greece thıs mornıng. Man, let me tell you, those over nıght ferrıes are anythıng but restful.

Anyway, we are at thıs really great back packıng hub just out of the famous ruıns of Ephesus (by the way, I am havıng a bıt of trouble negocıatıng wıth thıs cyrılıc keyboard, so I am sorry for any mıstakes). Turkey ıs great!!
Such a bıg country, so cheap and ınterestıng so far! We have latched on, as ıs our habıt, to some other travellers goıng ın our dırectıons. Two spanısh guys (Jon and Sebastıan) and one amerıcan (Marc). We are apprecıatıng travellıng wıth guys so far; it's ıncrebıle how much less people stare than when the both of us just travel alone.
I wısh we could stay longer. So far, our plan ıs to vısıt Ephesus and more of Sulçek, then go to Pamukkale for the amazıng pools, then on to Cappadocıa for the underground cıty and faıry chımneys, then Bursa, then Istanbul wıth perhaps a day trıp to the Prıncess ıslands or Edırne. I'm just besıde myself ın excıtement!!! It's promısıng to be spectacular... I wıll post pıctures as soon as I can.

Oh, and to update: after Santorını we went on to Naxos, whıch was just so beautıful and frıendly ın comparıson (and, of course, ın general).

PS: Beat, dıd you post the nude beaches comment? We were ın Mykonos for a day but we just too exhausted to bother bussıng half way accross the ısland to go to any of ıt's "famous"beaches.

Given your issues with the Cyrillic Keyboard, i'm going to pretend there was a typo and respond: no, it was not me with the nude beaches comment.

Though, come to think of it, it could be my type ! :o)

Sounds like you're having a great time, even though you didn't go to the nude beaches :)
It's too bad it's so tough for women to travel alone in these countries (my friends had the same problem in Mexico).

Vic! It's been way too long. I can't believe you're traveling around for the summer! I'm enjoying following your blog... in the fall we're going to have to catch up and you can show me pictures!

Hope you continue to have a fantastic time!!
