It’s a very cold day as we gingerly step into the slippery pool at the beautiful ancient white travertine terraces of Pamukkale, the Cotton Castle. Barefoot, but the 35°C water makes our feet happy, till we have to leave. February 2013.
We continue with our delightful stroll along the main street of Hierapolis, the ancient Greco-Roman city founded 2nd century BC, taking in all the sights and real history it has to offer. February 2013.
A stroll through the Greco-Roman ancient city of Hierapolis, founded in 2nd century BC. A wonderful site to observe ancient Greek and Roman architecture first-hand. February 2013.

This is the start of our 11-day independent adventure around Turkey, taking us to eight places, as far away as southeastern Anatolia at the Syrian border. Our first ever visit to this much-mentioned country, I hope it won’t let us down! February 2013.
