Backpacking Harran, Turkey – Beehives & New Friends

Sanliurfa is a beautiful city in Eastern Turkey with a lot to see and do. Unfortunately Turkey is such a big country so we had to really start moving a lot in hopes of covering more area and seeing more sights. Instead of spending day 3 in the actual town of Sanliurfa we took a ...

Gaziantep & Sanliurfa – Exploring Eastern Turkey

The further East we headed in Turkey, the more like travelling it became.

Road Trip in Crete: Driving From Coast To Coast

We reached Crete via a short super fast ferry from Santorini.  Crete is one of the most popular places to visit in Greece so we were excited to explore it for the next 10 days. As usual on arrival we were pounced on by taxi drivers who claimed that the buses had stopped running. Our ...
