The best trip I've ever taken!:
I just came back from a trip to Turkey arranged by Odyssey Adventure Travel. Without a doubt it was the best trip I've even taken. Everything was great -- the guide, the sites, the food, the hotels, and the people. I am definitely planning to return and see more of this fascinating country; specifically a yacht (gulet)trip along the Mediterranean coastline. I felt totally safe at all times and encountered no anti-American sentiment -- just a country of lovely people. Be sure to have a glass of tea and a simit (sesame bread rings sold on the street).
