Turkey has a European side, Thrace but most of its land is in Asia and known as Anatolia. The further you get from the European side the more interesting and exotic the towns seem. Ankara and Konya are both Anatolian.
Istanbul is no longer the capital of Turkey but it has a historic centre and is one of the worlds largest cities. Its half in Europe and half in Asia so there are plenty of different things to see.
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.
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).
There are not many to places to go nowadays but Wales is a possibility. Now Covid restrictions being eased a little Welsh tourism is opening up under the banner “We’re good to go”
Greece has 6,ooo islands but only 227 of them are inhabited. We did a day trip to the three little islands of Aegina, Poros and Hydros on a Saronic islands tour from Pireaus.
These islands are everything you expect from a Greek island but they are tiny.
There is so much to see as you travel round Greece.
It seems likely Greece will be one of the first places we’ll be allowed to go when (if) lock down ends. Its worth it for the food. I could go there and just eat for a week! But when you’ve eaten all the mousaka and spanakopita you can manage there is plenty to see.
