The mountains in Turkey are cold this time of year and since we were running short on time – we planned to take a bus from Antalya to Istanbul. The bus station looked like an airport terminal and they even have security scanners at the entrance. While we were waiting, we stocked up on some treats while Tanya mentioned that she felt cold.
We had a long hard cycle up the hill to Geyikbayiri but when we arrived at the beautiful JoSiTo campsite, we knew it was worth it. We were completely surrounded by nature and cliffs, with the Turkish Standard wall just over the road.
We originally arrived in Olympos for the climbing but then realised there is so much more to this valley than we thought. We stayed in Kadir’s Tree House, a very unique hostel/hotel with a great vibe and interesting decor. It is also a hub for travellers and we met many interesting people on long journeys there.
Turkey. We didn’t know what to think about this country. Tensions have been high between Germany and Turkey in recent months and there was a handful of reports in the media of Germans being rejected at the border without any reasons given.
