Day 295 – In transit to Turkey
After checking out of our hotel at noon, we had four hours to kill prior to our ferry ride to Turkey. We decided to spend a couple of those hours online to get caught up on our digital lives. With the remainder of the time we grabbed a bite to eat and sat on a park bench admiring the beautiful Mediterranean Sea. At 4:00pm we hopped on our ferry and an hour and a half later we had arrived in Kusadasi, Turkey. Once in Kusadasi, we walked over to the bus stop and hopped on a mini-bus (dolmus) to Selcuk. Our initial impressions of Turkey are amazing. The locals are extremely friendly, honest, and helpful. We really appreciated their assistance today in finding the bus stop and our hotel in Selcuk.
