Alanya, Turkey (map)
Yes it is November and Thanksgiving is right around the corner, but what I am actually referring to is the country of Turkey!
When we booked our 11 night Eastern Mediterranean cruise we were thrilled that we would be able to visit a few countries never on our planned itinerary.
Our first stop was the port of Alanya, Turkey. We diligently utilized Wiki travel for information about this port and realized there would be plenty for us to do on our own. If you have caught on to our style of traveling, we tend to want to get away from the more touristy places and see for ourselves what a city has to offer.
Besides dealing with some rainy weather, we really enjoyed Turkey and hope to return someday to see more of the country.
