Roadtrip: İzmir-Manisa-Akhisar


Sunday 14 December, 2014 by Uncle Spike

During the ‘bayram’ or holiday/festival that marks the end of Ramadan this year (so that would be early August this year), we did a quick mini tour of some of our most senior relatives for a spot of hand-kissing and general chit chat.








Not all that fascinating, but I know that some of you like to see views from when we get out and about (a rare event in itself I have to admit).






We knocked up a thousand kilometres and blew a months budget on fuel. With having the world’s most expensive fuel, but with salaries and an economy running about one third of the developed world, these little adventures are a major financial undertaking. Nevertheless, we love to travel, and if the folks you aim to visit are worth it, well… 🙂






Love the ever changing, but dramatic countryside of western Turkey. It’s rarely flat, and certainly never boring to drive, especially with our notorious Turkish driving standards!
