Merhaba (hello), dear friends and readers!
After a busy few months on the road, I am back in Tahoe for a couple of weeks and finally have some time to catch up on the blog (apologies for the long delay!) The next few posts will follow my adventures through Turkey, beginning with visits to Balikesir and Istanbul and then setting out on an ambitious trek along the Black Sea coast, before switching paths to hike most of the Lycian Way on the Mediterranean. My travels then lead to Konya, Cappadocia (complete with hot air balloon), back to the Black Sea region and even to the far eastern expanses of Doğubeyazit and Mount Ararat. So stay tuned during the coming days for updates, adventures (and misadventures), meetings with colorful characters, and a whole trove of fun photos!
