Turkey’s ethos lies in its mesh of cultures that weave and interlock neatly within the fabric of the country. Far from presenting an anomaly these elements only serve to highlight the consonance of diversity that history has marked upon its grounds. From the Grecian ruins of Ephesus to the Roman amphitheater of Aspendos, from the Byzantine Sumela Monastery, a succession of monuments and ruins mark the land as if chronicling a chronology of events. Yet with all this, Turkey’s history receives fierce competition from its equally impressive natural wonders – the travertine terraces of Pamukkale where white and turquoise hues offset each other in a kind surreal beauty, the bronzed beaches of Patara and the alpine meadows of Kackar. Add to this the myriad ways in which life plays out on a daily basis – from the whirling Dervishes to the famous Hamam Baths, a hot air balloon flight over the fantastical Cappadocia landscape, kayaking, paragliding and a hike along the classical ruins of Lycian Way, which overlook the Mediterranean Sea from craggy hilltops. Indeed, there’s so much to do and see in Turkey for people in their 30's and 40's that repeat visits aren’t still enough to wholly discover the country’s many wonders.
