From Jamie's Philippines Pics

We have also had the opportunity to travel to some amazing places in China, Cambodia, Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, and Bali. We have archived all of our travels and living experiences abroad; and if you wish, you can read about our adventures by finding the archives on the right of this page and by checking our Photo Album.

We appreciate all of our family and friends who have stayed in touch and emailed us with encouraging words throughout the year. We hope you will continue to keep us in your thoughts as we continue our adventure of living abroad teaching at an international school. For those who have stumbled upon our site, check out the "About Eric and Jamie" section on the right for more information.

Thanks for checking us out!

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness."
- Mark Twain

"Perhaps travel cannot prevent bigotry, but by demonstrating that all peoples cry, laugh, eat, worry, and die, it can introduce the idea that if we try and understand each other, we may even become friends."
- Maya Angelou

Turkey - Day 5 - Selcuk

From Selcuk (Ephesus)

We fiddled with our itinerary and decided to catch a flight the next day instead of today.  We spent the morning in Selcuk again seeing the museum there.  I was able to get a haircut and shave and massage.  They did a fabulous job.  It was the first time I had ever had a shave with my haircut, and I really enjoyed it. 

After some lunch, we caught a dolmus to a small little mountain village 10 km away called Sirinci.  Best known for their wine, the streets are lined with small cafes and shops.  We bounced around from shop to shop taste testing some wine and enjoying the afternoon. 

We caught a shuttle back to the hostel, got some rest, ate dinner, watched more Dexter, and headed to bed.

Very relaxing day.  We probably didn’t need to stay there another day, but it was OK with us.  We saved some money on the flight to Kayseri and Atilla’s Getaway Hostel was a great place.
