Turkey Autumn 2013
When I visited the Pergamon Museum in Berlin with a Turkish friend in winter 2012/13, she asked me whether we shouldn't visit the original place of the Pergamon altar. At first, I thought she was kidding, but she was serious. So, in autumn 2013, we travelled the Turkish Aegean coast together with a common friend.
As none of us has a driver's licence, we depended on using the dolmuş (shared taxis in minibusses). However, we also used other means of transport like busses, a tractor, her father's and her boyfriend's car and also walked a lot (not just on site, but getting from one site to another). In Istanbul, we used the regular means of public transport.

As nothing is more boring than other people's holiday pictures, I only present a selection of 12 pictures. Not necessarily the standard motives every tourist brings home.
