Travels in Turkey

I can't believe that it has been more than 3 months since I updated my blog!  I am going to try to do a better job of keeping it updated.  My spot on the Creative Team for will end in a few weeks.  While I really enjoyed doing it, that will free up some time. 

The Blue Mosque in Istanbul
Last month we took a 10 day trip to Turkey to visit our daughter who was studying abroad in Istanbul.  We spent a few days in Istanbul before flying to Bodrum, along the Aegean Coast.

 Then we flew back to Istanbul and on to Cappadoccia, in the mountains. We took a hot air balloon ride early in the morning tha was amazing. We ended the trip with 2 more days in Istanbul.

We had a great time on the trip and saw some very interesting places.  We were glad that we had the opportunity to go and have Kelly as our tour guide.  However, I was ready to come home at the end of 10 days.  We spent a lot of time in airports and getting from place to place on this trip.

I have been working on my scrapbook for last year's Meditarrean Cruise.  I want to finish that up before I start working on our Turkey scrapbook.
