In September/October 2000, we spent two weeks in Western Turkey.
We spent some time in Izmir and did a tour of the seven churches of Revelation. Turkey has a large number of historical sites and Ephesus in particular has had significant restoration.
Highlights of the tour include Ephesus, staying in the resort towns, meeting grape and cotton pickers, the white terraces and hot springs at Pamukkule.
We liked Turkey so much that we moved there in September 2003.
