This one week trip to Turkey, in last October, was totaly unplaned.
I intended to visit Morrocco, I booked a two weeks' journey months ago and it was cancled at last.
So I decided to join a group of my friends, and we made a one week trip to Turkey.
It was the third time for me, to visit Turkey but it has so much to offer, the weather is still summery in October there, and there is always much to see and to do.
I can tell you, it was a good choice again....and join me, please.
