Bodrum: Turkey’s white marina city
After around 3 hours of bus ride from Kusadasi where my friend Nancy and I came from, we arrive in Bodrum. The streets are getting narrower and the houses are distinctly painted white. I’m still in Turkey I know it as we passed by a doner shop but it feels different.
Antalya: Ruins of Termessos
The ruins of Termessos is probably one of my favorite among the many in Turkey. For one it’s very much a ruin – nothing has been restored (or at least nothing looks to be). And second the view is fantastic! Although it is set on top of a mountain outside the city of Antalya, spending half day is enough to see the ancient city.

How Filipinos can travel in Turkey for 30 days instead of 15 (Turkish e-visa)
In a gist the e-visa means us Filipinos can stay in Turkey for 30 days provided that we have a supporting document (i.e. a valid OECD or Schengen visa). I didn’t have this but I realized it was easier to secure one rather than the traditional Turkish sticker visa so I went to the one that gives out the fastest – in my case it was Japan.
