It's quite bittersweet seeing my Turkey trip come to an end here on the blog. Mind you, I never meant to drag out my recaps through November but I think part of me has been holding out from posting -- if only to savor the last remnants of our adventure a bit longer.
For the final leg of our trip, we headed down south to the coastal town of Bodrum for some much needed R&R after hopping around Istanbul and Cappadocia. Bodrum is known for being a destination among local Turks and Europeans alike -- most notable for their nightlife and dining. This portion of our trip, fortunately, took on a much slower pace with lazy mornings snacking on watermelon next to our hotel pool, long days at the beach (I made it through three different books) and our biggest decision of the day being where to eat dinner that evening. Bookending the trip this way made all the difference in the world -- we left tan, relaxed and beyond content.
