Islands are still deserted and as beautiful as they were when you last saw them.And if you ever make your way here,you have a home waiting for you and your wife.
Selamlar Rick!
Kendine iyi bak!
I talk about the islands often and have shown pictures to my wife, and I will visit some day. I sent this thread to my brother and he thought some of the pictures looked like Burgaz.

So many stories, but I won't high-jack the thread. Thank you for your offer, which is typical of the wonderful Turkish hospitality. Likewise, if you are ever coming to Southern California you have a friend and a home to stay.

You are welcome but I'm a bit perplexed.At the very start of this post,someone ignored the thread as it wasn't an RR but this time I have met you thanking me for not showing exhausts or tyres:)

Last year during my trip in Turkey I visited Istanbul, I like it so much! But I missed the charming place you've shown. Next year I'll come back in Turkey and if I'll have the chance I'll visit it.
Thanks for your pics.

Keep it coming!

I'm loving the pics from Turkey. My daughter spent the last year in Izmir as part of a high school exchange. She loves Turkey and can't wait to get back. Thanks so much so for sharing your RR. I look forward to more.

Haydarpaşa Military Base and the port.
We took a cruise this summer. I loved the Bosphorus tour. The Mosques were so amazing. The scene from the water was one of my favourites. Like nothing I have ever seen. Then we went into town for dinner. What lovely people we met. The first guy I talked to had a Rossi replica helmet. I want to return to Turkey again.
