In the summer of 2002 we have been to Turkey. The first 2 weeks of this holiday we stayed at a hotel in Bodrum. The last week we were guests at the parents of a friend of ours in Özdere. From here we made a trip to the ancient city of Ephesus.
They used to pay in millions in Turkey. So if you ever wanted to know how it feels to blow away millions, then Turkey was the pace to go.
The temperature during the summer is very high, but forunately we had airconditioning in our hotel room so we could cool off. The second week we were there there was a heatwave. Even the local population ceased all activities.
The population is very friendly and they'll always find someone who can speak english. But with a small dictionary and our hands and feet we eventually booked to tickets for the bus to Kuşadası.
