I have always love ancient ruins and when i went to Turkey there was a ruins place called Ephesus. It was amasing, truely breath taking.


i also went to a hut at a top of the mountain and it was said that, that was were the Virgin Mary died. because a nun lived there and she said she had a vision of the Virgin Mary (that is the story).
me and my father went into the hut and you could feel the power within it! it was amasing! words cannot explain the feeling that i felt. (i am not religious) thought i would mention that. you were able to talk within the hut but i felt that i couldn't speak!
thought i would share this with you all.

On the cross Jesus entrusted his mother to the care of Saint John and it is thought that when John was in Ephesus (37-48AD are possible dates) Mary was with him.

Take care

I'm leaving for Turkey on Thursday - I can hardly wait! Our first trip and it will be with a group as sort of a cultural/interfaith kinda thing.

We fly into Istanbul but we're supposed to go to several other cities - I don't have the itenarary yet. We'll be there for 10 days.

One thing though - I've been checking the weather forecasts and I can't figure out just what to pack. I need to pack the bare minimum! We bought a bunch of overpriced microfiber clothing because we were told it would be really hot but, the weather reports and forecasts don't seem to bear that out. In some places, it looks like we might even need light jackets. ARGH!!! Any jacket will take up about half the suitcase I was planning to pack.

Any advice?

Back from Turkey and what can I say?! A most beautiful and amazing place with the warmest and most welcoming people I've met anywhere!

Our group went to a lot more places than I had expected - we went to about 10 cities, I think. I can barely remember some of them. Konya was wonderful! We went to Ephesus and it was mind-blowing. We also went to the legendary house of the Virgin Mary and, I have to admit, I thought it was a complete fake. Very disappointing. The structure there was certainly nowhere close to 2,000 years old - maybe more like 500 years old at the most.

Istanbul - WOW! Go there!

U2U me if you want details and pictures and such.

The coasts of Turkey are indeed beautiful!

On my trip, our group was booked into some fabulous hotels but they really weren't my style - they cater to a lot of Russian and eastern European tastes which seem to be more along the lines of Miami in the 80's - very "disco" and glitzy. I'm sure there are coastal cities that are more "authentic" and less of a jukebox atmosphere. I still had a great time but I'd love to go back and explore some of the quieter areas - more off the beaten path.
