The Resort Destination of Antalya, Turkey

By

On my ten-day trip to Turkey, I wanted one Mediterranean seaside resort town experience. Antalya on the southern coast, aka the “Turkish Riviera.” My initial research had led me to the cities of Antalya and Bodrum. I asked a Turkish friend which she recommended. She said the places were pretty even, but that Bodrum would be more of a luxury yacht/ boutique type of place. My tastes lean towards more of the common man so I chose Antalya.

Ephesus, Turkey Travel Access Review

By

This visit was part of a ten day, three-stop, tourist trip to Turkey in April of 2014. I had been to Istanbul once in 1980.

Clearly people and society has thought about the needs of the disabled. Folks normally have an accommodating...

Istanbul, Turkey Accessible Travel (Review #1)

By

Recently I travelled to Istanbul Turkey for vacation.Before we left I searched the web for information on the accessibility of the major tourist sites. I  found that they were for the most part accessible, but due to the historical value, not much can be done to alter them for better access. What was even of more importance to me was “how was I going to get around the city”? I learned that there are NO accessible taxis. I did find one company that has a lift van to take you wherever you want to go. Their name is Engelli...
