I had a great time in Turkey. I've been to many countries in South East Asia and wanted something different for a change and boy am I glad I did! Our tour guide brought us to all the historical sites I had my heart set on seeing and even surprised us with a few treats in the form of tea and dinner with locals in their homes. It gave us a chance to see the more natural side of Turkish culture as a break from the more common tourist attractions. I found those experiences all the more satisfying and memorable.

I went to Turkey to learn about the Ottoman Empire, which I did, and I also learned much more. I didn't realize that Turkey was so ancient. This made it so much more interesting.
