I traveled for two weeks throughout Turkey making a big circle starting in Istanbul and going all the way South to the Mediterranean and then back up through the middle and back to Istanbul – I basically circumnavigated the region referred to as Anatolia (also referred to as Asia Minor). I logged a lot of miles in various forms of transportation – but it was a great way to get a better feel for the Turkish culture overall. As big and exciting as Istanbul is – I highly recommend that you get out and discover Anatolia as part of your travels in Turkey. These are some of my favorite photos from that circular trip around Asia Minor. Some images highlight the rather touristy areas and some focus on the quiet every day life that makes up this vast region. I’ll be providing much more detail of the trip and areas visited over the next month, but these photos will hopefully give you a quick visual overview of what you can expect outside of Istanbul.
