Making friends all over the world.

In September 2015, I did a 9-day trip to Turkey with my partner, Sarah, and our friend Laura.

I’m a big fan of vacations to mark life changes and for personal growth. In particular, I subscribe to a concept that I learned from college lecture by the esteemed rapper Chuck D, “If you want to be more open minded, get a passport.”

That’s so true. Turkey checked all my boxes for a great vacation. I saw a great culture and am thinking about new ways to live well, I got a complete and total mental and physical break, I had fun, I learned a lot. I was with great people. Everything about Turkey was great.

Following are some notes about how to have a great trip there for yourself.

We flew to the Turkish coast and rented a car, flying into Dalaman and out of Antalya.
