Jim & Geri in Eastern Turkey

In April 1998 we spent 22 days visiting
Western Turkey and Greece.

This journal details our trip to Turkey and Greece. It begins on April 1, 1998 when we began our long trip to Istanbul. It concludes on April 24 when we made the long trip back home from Athens. Days 4 through 16 of our trip found us on an escorted tour through Turkey. We were "on our own" for the remaining days when we were in Greece.

The map below is from our Turkey tour handbook. See http://www.ricksteves.com for information on how to signup for the tour.
