After a hiatus of a little more than four (!!!) months, I’m finally updating this blog. These photos are from Kaş, Turkey, the first stop on our Blue Cruise along Turkey’s southern coast.
Kaş by Moonlight
After five days in Istanbul, a brief flight and three separate buses, our trip to Turkey took a turn towards tranquility as Ashley and I found ourselves in the town of Olympos. What was once an ancient Lycian city and is now a backpacker’s paradise, it boasts a beautiful beach and stunning views of the Mediterranean.
One of the best ways to take in the beauty of these surroundings is to climb a hill of ancient ruins that rewards the climber with quite the panoramic view.
To finish up my pictures from Istanbul, here is the first of two posts that will consist of miscellaneous shots from our wanderings around this beautiful city.

Following up on my previous post, here are more pictures from my wanderings around the grounds of Topkapi Palace, with all of these taken outside of the Harem.
