Tomorrow I leave for a two week vacation in Turkey and Greece. The first four days will be taken up with a wedding after that E and I are free to explore Istanbul, Ephesus, Bodrum, Symi, Kos and Athens as we choose. I am incredibly excited. This will be my first time in the Mediterranean and I plan to take full advantage of the historical sites and the beach. Oh and food, lots of food.
I’ll fit in exercise as I can. I plan to run three days a week and swim as much as possible in the Mediterranean. Pool laps might be drudgery, but nothing beats a nice ocean swim.
I’ll also be visiting a number of sites of interest to the ancient history buff including Hagia Sophia, the ruins at Ephesus, and the Parthenon in Athens. I’ll post photos and thoughts when I return.
