An eight hour bus from Izmir and all we wanted was to check in, have a shower and grab a bite to eat. Well that would have been way too easy, as our accomodation for that night completely let us down (to say the least). They had absolutely no excuse besides the fact that someone else […]
The inner city of Izmir is one I would suggest if you are looking for a place to stop over for a night, or you are intending to head to Ephesus (which is a large historical site of ancient ruins. As Rik said – “Why would we want to see the ruined stuff, where is all the […]
