Ankara

Of all places that I visited in Turkey, perhaps I could have skipped Ankara. Although, within the context of my travel, it made sense to stop there. I was in Konya and from there I wanted to go back to Istanbul. One way to travel from Konya to Istanbul is by bus, via Ankara, and that's what I did. But, let me explain my earlier comment. Ankara is not a tourist destination the way Istanbul is. It came to ...

Ottoman Konya

In my previous posts, I wrote about the Seljuk heritage in Konya and also about the fascinating Mevlana Museum. But, there is also Ottoman Konya to consider, in addition to history that existed there before it became an important Ottoman city. In fact, that was the only thing that I knew about Konya when I decided to go there during my travel across Turkey last year.

Mevlana Museum – Konya

There exist special places in the world, but we may know nothing about them. In my case, the Mevlana Museum was one of them. When I included Konya in my travel itinerary, I only knew that it was an important Ottoman city. Thus, it made sense for me to go there because one of the reasons for my travel across Turkey was to explore the Ottoman heritage. I remember reading about Konya while I was on the beach ...

Seljuk Konya

Earlier this year, when I was making plans for my travel across Turkey, I included Konya in my travel plan because I knew that it was an important Ottoman city. But, I certainly did not know that there would be an additional aspect to it. I read about Konya on the beach in Antalya, because I wanted to find out more about the place that I would visit. That's when I discovered its Seljuk history and that it ...

Konya

After a week in Antalya, it was time for me to move to Konya, the next destination during my travel across Turkey in July and August 2019. I was a bit sad to leave Antalya, because I enjoyed my time on the beach there. The inland places that I was going to visit during the next leg of my journey had neither a beach nor a swimming pool, where I could cool down during very hot summer days. But, that didn't ...

Antalya – where to stay and what to do?

If you consider spending your summer holiday in Antalya, where to stay and what to do may be the first thing that you will ask before you start making arrangements. Indeed, every time we go to a new place we may feel a bit apprehensive, although that's normal. We all want to have a good time and to get the best out of our holidays.

Antalya

After a short stop in Aydin, it was time for me to move to Antalya, the next destination during my travel across Turkey in July and August 2019. I originally planned to go there directly from Kusadasi, where I spent a week on the beach. I wanted to continue my summer holiday, but in a different place. When I planned this trip earlier this year, I also considered Bodrum and Fethiye. But, I've been to both ...

Aydin

After a week on the beach in Kusadasi, it was time for me to move to the next destination during my travel across Turkey in July and August 2019. I originally planned to go directly to Antalya, to spend some more time by the sea. But when I checked how to go there, I discovered that there were no direct buses from Kusadasi. I first had to go to Aydin and then travel to Antalya. So, taking into account ...

Kusadasi

The main reason for my travel to Turkey in summer 2019 was to spend several weeks on the beach. But, that was not the only reason. I also wanted to explore the Ottoman heritage. I have really only been to Istanbul in the past and with my Italian friends I also went to Bodrum and Fethiye in June 2007. But, that was a short trip with an accent on being by the sea, as it was in the summer. So, after Istanbul, ...

Ottoman Izmir

The main reason for my travel to Turkey in July and August 2019 was to spend several weeks on the beach, in some of Turkey's most popular summer resorts. However, the second reason was to explore the Ottoman heritage and that's why I went to Istanbul, Bursa and Konya. These three cities, but also some other ones, are the richest in the Ottoman history. I have already written about Istanbul and Bursa. They ...
