Travels in Greece

Oh my friends, I am thrilled to share our most recent adventure with you!
We recently returned from a wonderful journey to
Turkey and Greece!
We explored many religious and historical sights
and experienced the food, culture and tradition of this marvelous area.
On this 15 day trip I managed to take over 1000 photos!  I am sharing only
a few highlights here with you and hope you will enjoy these excerpts over the next few days/weeks!
Our journey began in Istanbul.
Bright blue skies and hot weather greeted us as we visited
the Blue Mosque, the Haige Sophia and the Topkopi Museum.

Istanbul is one of the most populated cities in the world.
Over 15 million people reside here.  Houses reach out as far as the eye can see.

But calm and quiet can still be found along the shore.

Food is always an important part of experiencing the culture of a region.
Locmajun (Turkish pizza) and stuffed grape leaves!  Yum!!

One of my favorite things about the Mediterranean region is that everyone sits outside to eat!
No worries, no rushing...just enjoy the food and the company.
We did! 

 Our cousins joined us on this discovery. 
We enjoyed sharing this trip with fellow sojourners.

After only two days in Istanbul we flew to Ephesus, one of the highlights of the trip.
We walked in the footsteps of Paul.

It was amazing and almost incomprehensible to be here, among the ruins of
Biblical history.

An experience of a lifetime...

We visited the tomb of John.

Our hearts were lifted and our faith confirmed.
The journey continues.....
Until Next Time ~
