Top things to do in Turkey

The beautiful sceneries of Turkey

The regions of Turkey are so different from each other that it sometimes feels as if you moved to another country when you enter a new city. And this is why, when I’m traveling with a bus or minibus, I usually try to keep my eyes wide open (when I’m not dead tired from a very early wake-up or a long day of hiking) to be sure that I don’t miss any piece of the turkish landscapes.

Les régions de Turquie sont tellement différentes les unes des autres qu’on a parfois l’impression d’avoir changé de pays lorsqu’on arrive dans une nouvelle ville. Du coup, lorsque je voyage en bus ou minibus, je garde le plus souvent possible mes yeux grands ouverts ( à condition de ne pas être crevée par un réveil de trop bonne heure ou une longue journée de randonnée) pour être certaine de ne pas rater une seule milliseconde des paysages qui défilent devant mes yeux.
