Turkey (2015)

I traveled to Turkey from 16 September – 18 October 2015. My plans changed quite a bit. Originally I was going to cycle tour with my mum. Then I decided to walk the Lycian Way and my parents were going to join me for a week. But then my parents rented a sailing boat for a week out of Bodrum and a camper van for a week from Bodrum to Istanbul via the Lycian Way. So I joined them and a very different trip emerged.
