    • AVIS location in Cesme

      Cesme Jul 29, 2015 at 5:51 AM

      Hi all,

      I am trying to pinpoint a location of AVIS car rental station in Chesme. The station name on their international site is "Cesme, Inonu Mah. Izmir Cad. (IZ1)" and the address is: "No 40 Cesme Izmir 35210 Turkey Location Code: IZ1"

      When I try to enter this address at google maps and a few other mapping sites, however, the results are always different. What is more, on google I see Avis location in Chesme (an icon on the map), which is in different place from the place google shows as the result of searching for the address. My local Avis person pointed me to yet another direction - somewhere in Alacati.. so by now I am a bit lost.

      If you know where the place is, would you be so kind to post a link to exact location on google maps or some GPS coordinates? (on google maps right click on the place, choose "What is here?" from the dropdown and copy coords from the pop-up tile).

      Would very much appreciate your help!

      First Trip to Turkey

      Turkey Yesterday

      Hello once more. I am leaning more toward an all Turkey trip now other than a Greece-Turkey combo as previously posted. Though, that's still on the table.
      What I want to ask is opinions on the West (Aegean) versus the Central. The west of course has all the great Greco/Roman sites while the Central has the capital of Ankara, Cappadocia and the Hittite sites.

      Of course, the final decision would be solely up to me, all comments are welcome.
      The only additional tidbit I can provide is trip would be 11 days.

    • Cost and feasability of private driver to get from Istanbul to Stara Zagora, Bulgaria?

      Turkey Jul 24, 2015 at 12:38 AM

      I'm attempting to get from Ataturk airport to Stara Zagora within 5 hours. Unfortunately, Turkish car rental companies do not allow cars to be taken from the country, so I assume my only option left is a private driver/taxi.

      Any sense how feasible this is or what the cost would be?

    • Is it too hot to vacation in Istanbul late August?

      Istanbul Jul 30, 2015 at 8:18 PM

      Hi, my boyfriend and I are from NYC and looking to vacation in Istanbul around the end of August. Some friends of ours say August is unbearable around this time of the year. Is it really that hot, or is it the humidity? Or both? Another important question, I am a slender tall female, (not very curvaceous) that likes to wear shorts or even skirts above the knee with tank tops exposing the arms when it's warm. I would describe my style as basic but elegant. Would this look still be distasteful or make locals feel uncomfortable? I am not at all familiar with their customs and don't want to be viewed as ignorant.
      Thanks so much! Any other tips about customs would be greatly appreciated as well!

      Where to go?

      Turkey Jul 20, 2015 at 6:05 AM

      As part of my Greece/Turkey trip I am planning, I intend to do one of these segments:

      1. The Classical sites of the Aegean (Ephesus, etc)
      2. Ankara and the Hittite Sites
      3. Cappadocia

      As this could be my only trip to the region, I have to be selective. I am a history buff and also have a long standing interest in ancient history and archaeology.

      Feedback please.

      Athens/Istanbul Combo Trip

      Turkey Jul 14, 2015 at 8:44 AM

      Its me, roamer, again. I have since decided on this as it may be the sole time to that region. I have a few questions concerning the proposed programme:

      1. Fly to Athens, Greece
      2-4. In Athens
      5. Fly to Istanbul
      5-7. In Istanbul
      8. Fly to Izmir
      9. Trip to Classical site(s)
      10. In Istanbul
      11. Home.

      Here are my questions:
      A: In October, if I go to Ephesus, will it still be crowded with cruise passengers?
      B:For return to Istanbul from Izmir, which is better to do, Night bus or flight?
      C: Which is the better choice, Ephesus or Pergammon or the trio of Miletus, Priene and Didyma?
      D: has anyone visited Sardis and if yes, how does it stack up to these other site?
