WHY TURKEY by Mehlika Seval

Postby MehlikaSeval on Mon Mar 09, 2009 4:46 am

Turkey is a fascinating country of contrasts. It is like the head of a horse heading towards Europe but has his legs well fixed in Asia. Both worlds - east and west - meet here and the culture is a reflection of
the synthesis of cultures, values, philosophies, religions, and architecture of not only East and West but past and present. Taking the history as far back as 10000 years before our time. If the ethnic diversity is the different tiles of Turkey’s mosaic, the synthesis of the cultures give the unique hue to the colors of the tiles.
Being in the middle of 3 old continents, Asia, Europe and Africa, the topography, the flora and the fauna are reminiscent of all three continents. However, Anatolia also has her own unique natural features of her land.
The country with its people, nature, and way of life is very photogenic. I invite those who love immortalizing moments of ecstasy in the frames of their photos to come to Turkey. Mehlika Seval http://www.melitour.com

Meli is our friend and guide for our trip through western Turkey. She has been a tour guide there for over 3 decades and also runs trips to Morocco, Mongolia and many others. I'm hoping to put a future photo trip to Mongolia within the next couple of years to be guide by Meli!

Jim I am so sorry for many reasons that I can't go with you on this trip. I look forward to checking in here often to see how you are doing and to debrief you when you get back. Have a safe trip and a wonderful time. lyman
Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed
by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do.
So throw off the bowlines.
Sail away from the safe harbor.
Catch the trade winds in your sails.
Explore. Dream. Discover.
