If one had but a single glance to give the world,
one should gaze on Istanbul.
~ Alphonse de Lamartine, writer/poet
I would add Ephesus to that, too!
Never did I imagine I would have the opportunity to visit exotic Turkey!
I have so many fond memories of my travels there:
the ruins of the ancient city of Ephesus, the House of the Virgin Mary on Mt. Koressos, the Basilica of St. John, the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia, Topkapi Palace, haggling at the Grand Bazaar, enjoying Turkish cuisine while cruising the Bosphorus Strait.
Traveling makes great memories.
Hope you’re having a great beginning to your week!
