Anatolian Road Trip Scenery


Sunday 31 May, 2015 by Uncle Spike

A last minute family event the other week saw me take another road trip to Ankara, the capital city of our fair land, and the place of residency of my in-laws. It was also to pick up my wife who was there on business for a week or so, saving her some 12 hours on an overnight bus, and then we had some other family business to take care of too, so ended up taking a major detour as well. All in all, a good trip, in not all a bit rushed; spending just two days there before heading back for work and school.




Further to the well received posts I’ve done before of our road trips (based on comments received), here are some more images of journeys not previously covered (I think).




Anatolia is basically twisty mountain passes, or wide open spaces, but wherever it is, the views are generally favourable, and sometimes downright impressive!




And plenty of lakes, even if some are salt beds – but this one’s not; this is Lake Burdur, which is situated pretty well due east of Denizli, and due north of Antalya.






Nice wide roads on the whole, and most of the traffic is even traveling in the right direction; a rarity on many of our dual-laned roads – makes for interesting driving at least 🙂




Somehow I never tire of the mountains though – means I’m coming home I guess!

    Great photos, brought back some good memories as I travelled through that very area….those long bus trips too are a bumpy ride around the mountain areas I remember that very well. I agree …if you have the opportunity to live in the mountains you can’t beat it!

    Mountains remind me of my deployment to Afghanistan. Magnificent.

    momwithoutpaws says your images reflects the experience yet does it reflect the image of the man whom went off the rails which he has described? she understands the images and the man, and is working on her own literary images of the woman off the rails, Love the images.
