The best thing about Turkey is its variety. History, both ancient and modern, astounding natural features, and a fascinating culture.
There are so many more beautiful and interesting towns in Spain. Here are a few of my favourites.
Just like Portugal the best bits of Spain are away from the tourist seaside resorts.
As tourists we were taken to see working farms, schools and study centres. We bought sweets for the children in carefully orchestrated meetings. We saw children play in bands and we were invited to dance with them. I have no idea what they thought of the foreigners who they treated like royalty but we did have a good time.
I could spend a long time on the Algarve but Portugal has lots more to offer. Now its possible to go without quarantining (at least for now).
