A fitting way to officially end summer
vacation AND to spend the last weekend together with Eric before he headed back to Saudi was to have a weekend get-a-way at a resort on the Aegean Sea. And, in typical Jansen style, what better way to reach that destination than by bicycle?! Saturday morning we caught the 8:45 ferry to the opposite of Izmir Bay (and cut the trip by about 30 kilometers and avoid lots of traffic).
Here is a picture of an Turkish Naval Museum including a submarine.
Our first stop is coffee..
This is at the top of the last long hill. The scenery was not so go here and it was very hot. But those hills in the distance are our goal.
Our appetizers...homemade sarma and fresh calamari.
