Today we are in Turkey.
Since the ship docked right in the middle of town, it was fairly easy to get off and check out things out pier side. I didn’t book an excursion because initially this was a canceled port of call for us and then they added it back right before our sailing. Nothing looked like a 10 for me, so it was a good day to check out the ship while everyone else was off of it.
This reminded me a lot of Rhodes, yesterday’s port. Tons of aggressive shop and bar owners trying to push you into their shops. Since it was pouring rain when we first got off the ship, we made our way to the first covered area we found and had a drink and beef kabobs. It was around 30 euro and then we went on our way. We were back on the ship within an hour.
