Curtis with some spices!

A quick snapshot of our current tour to Turkey…We  started our journey in Istanbul, a city of spice markets, beautiful mosques, delicious kebabs and of course tea and Turkish delight! As we progress down the coast of the Aegean Sea we cross the Dardanelles singing the Husky Fight song as we ‘land’ on the ‘Asia minor’ side of Turkey. A visit to the ancient cities  of Troy and Ephesus  are a spectacular highlight for the group and we are heading off today for a 5 day cruise on the Turquoise Coast. I hope we have some good swimmers so we can see the underwater ruins!
