Trip To Turkey 2013 (3)

The final set of pictures from my recent trip to Turkey. These are best viewed in full picture mode. I hope you enjoy looking at these as much as enjoyed taking them!



The Temple of Artemis. A stork has found a great place to nest on top of the column!


Figurine outside the House of the Virgin Mary.

Some of the mineral pools at Pamuakkle


View of the valley below the mineral pools.


Roman theatre on the site at Herophilus.


Avenue to the ancient site at Asklepion.


A 'therapeutic' tunnel at Asklepion site. When you walk through the tunnel you can hear the trickling of water. Very relaxing. Nothing today 'is new'!


Pergamon


Some of the remains of a building at Pergamon

Jeep safari through the National Park.


Dusty and wet turned out to be the order of the day!


Ancient abandoned monastery found in the forest.


Pit stop for lunch in the shade.


A great outdoor kitchen to barbecue behind!


You could see the Greek Islands out to sea from this view point in the mountains.


 Finished off the jeep safari with a swim in the sea at Long Beach!
