    Natalie, do you travel alone? I am alone now after the death of my husband and wondered how easy it is to travel by oneself. I would have to use public transport but that ought to be okay. What to you think?

      Hi Sandra,Sometimes I do go with friends or hubby, for example Istanbul, but they are quite used to my preference for traveling and will often let me go off and do my own thing. The worst thing is to travel with someone who is clingy.

      If you plan to use public transport, a lot will depend on the area you want to travel to. The south west coast of Turkey was very easy for me, as buses were frequent and there were a lot of interconnecting routes.

      However in the Black sea, there were a lot of places I wanted to visit that were off the beaten track, so after two days, I joined a group tour and then left them when I got to the next big city. I was on my own but everyone was really friendly.

      I do a lot of research before I leave and am quite happy with my own company so don’t need to rely on other people for entertainment.

      My recommendation is just to do it. If it is your first time traveling alone, pick somewhere easy like the Bodrum peninsula or the south west coast. Try it for a week at first, if you find you like it, extend your trip or the next time do it for longer.

      I warn you though, it becomes addictive after a while. As soon as you get back, you want to head off again. :)

    Ahh the Saklikent Gorge photos brought back a lot of memories – basically of walking around with my jaw open, and ten year old boys helping me through the rapids haha!

    That photo of Pattara is gorgeous – it’s the beach I was looking for but never found in Turkey.

    The photo of Ani is my favourite here, though. Whereabouts is Savsat National Park located, by the way??

      Hi Tom,

      Savsat should actually be with the Turkish s, but this theme does not let me display it. It is pronounced shavshat and it is on the way from Atrvin to Kars. Ardanuc if I recall correctly. Way up in the north east

    Really gorgeous shots! What camera and lens are you generally using these days? I’ve been thinking of upgrading my kit lens and these kinds of photos certainly justify a new lens! A Christmas present to myself. :-)

    The photos of Ani and Bogazici are 2 of my favs! Although they are all very good!

    Hi Natalie.

    I love all the pictures here. Specially Uzungol looks just breathtaking. Are there any good hotels near Uzungol ? as I am interested to visit this part of Turkey. If I plan to visit Uzungol what else can I include in my list for places nearby. Already visited Istanbul twice. Bursa, Yalova & Izmir. Lovely country lovely people amazing food.!!!

    • says

      Hi Nauman – lots of good hotel but book early because they do get reserved quickly. I did Uzungol as part of a tour so started in Trabzon and saw Sumela monastery, then stayed one night in Uzungol. Here you can hire a bike or go trekking in the mountain. My tour guide took me further up to the Demirkapi plateau. The next morning, we continued east and went to Ayder plateau.

      Here are some more articles about the black sea http://turkishtravelblog.com/category/destinations/black-sea-region/

      I still have some more to publish as well

      You definitely would not regret choosing this area for a holiday. It is amazing.

    I loved the photos of ruins at Ani and the old house on the road to Bogazici, Natalie! Well, actually, I liked them all. I really want to see that bridge in Firtina in person some day! And how on earth did you get that shot of Sumela? We pass by there a lot when we drive up to my in-laws house in the mountains.

      Thanks Justine : Sumela was taken from the roadside on the way up. We were still in the car at that point and stopped so that view was on our right hand side. I remember having to move some trees to the side but it was a perfect view after that. Try it next time you go
