People visit Turkey for many reasons. Some are obvious such as the weather, beaches, hospitality, food, scenery, history and culture; others, such as skiing, boating, scuba diving, hang gliding, parasailing, walking and cycling, are less well-known.Getting Around in Turkey
Private car ownership in Turkey is much lower than in many other advanced countries. Whether this is because of or the reason for its highly developed public transport system, I don't know. Turkey is a big country: the distance from İstanbul to the Syrian border is greater than that from London to Berlin, but no journey is more than around 90 minutes' flying time from İstanbul and there are many domestic airlines competing for customers by providing frequent flights between the major cities, making flying a very inexpensive form of long distance travel.Taxi in Turkey
Wherever we go in the world, travellers are warned not to trust taxi drivers. They'll take advantage of your unfamiliarity with the currency, take you a very long route, take you places to earn commission, set the meter permanently at peak rate. They may even physically assault you and rob you.Aegean Springtime Turkey
I love all the seasons in our home on the Aegean coast of Turkey, for they each have a special character and appeal of their own, but of them all I love the spring the most.
