Well, as promised, here are some photos of my lovely summer holiday. I can never decide whether posts like this are completely self-indulgent – but since I enjoy seeing people photos, I thought I would give you a snapshot view of sunny skies and turkish attractions.
First off, a happy couple photo! That’s Ben, for anyone who hasn’t seen him before! This is the amazing mineralised scenery that is Pammukale, loosely translated as “Cotton Castle” – you can see why. Full of warm thermal waters and plenty of calcium, this was as amazing this time as it was when I visited at a little ‘un. Ooh, and there was a group of tadpoles in one of the pools, and 3 cute kittens (not in a pool, obviously) – this made me very happy and kept me entertained.
Beautiful isn’t it?!!
Ephesus was another trip – a super-big ancient city complete with a library – thats the reconstruction in the picture. The place was huge – and very hot. The library, it has been discovered, had a long underground tunnel leading to the brothel. Men, it is assumed, would get a little lovin’ whilst claiming to their significant other an innocent trip to swot up on some scrolls. Classic!
Wahhey! Camels! Need I say more?
Finally, a bit of scenery to show the absolute beauty that can befall a hot country hit by rain. Things glow, shimmer, you get bright lights against the deepest bluest clouds. Plus, the air has that fresh damp yet hot feeling – I had never realised before how beautiful this could be.
Has anyone else been on holiday recently?
