Beach Cafe Kizkalesi Turkey



Towards the end of our year-long trip, our kids were becoming very road-weary. Even though our original goal had been to follow the Silk Road from Xi’an to Istanbul within a day of crossing into Turkey I knew they were just spent. We could have taken an overnight bus from Diyarbakir to Istanbul, done a three-day mad dash around the bazaars, mosques and museums and detoured at Ephesus for a been-there-done-that stop but it didn’t seem fair – or worthwhile. Instead we ambled our way along the Turkish Mediterranean coast stopping at beach resorts along the way. It was marvelous and relaxing and just plain fun – as this photo of my boys lounging like pashas at a beach cafe in Kizkalesi shows.

Head on over to DeliciousBaby for more travel-themed Friday photo fun.

About wandermom

". . .life is short and the world is wide" - Simon Raven I'm not sure I've ever consciously planned a trip based on this sentiment, but it definitely influences my subconscious! I've been traveling as frequently and widely as possible since I finished school. And I love it. I love the research, the planning, the fervent packing and the curiosity of exploring somewhere I've never been before. My husband & I are both Irish - as in born-in-Ireland. But we live in Seattle. We have two boys: wild, boisterous, regular boys. So, since becoming a Mom, I've been a WanderMom. Given our slightly-unusual family situation, routine "visits-to-Grandma" are international trips requiring passports, 10hr-flights and (oh joy!) airport transfers. I have rants, raves and opinions about how, where & why to travel with kids (start them as young as you can, I say!). I hope to learn even more by researching topics which other wandermoms may be interested in reading about on this blog. Passports, pacifiers, diapers and gameboys at the ready - off we go!
