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.
