Armchair Travel – Turkey: where East Meets West and food is fabulous

When: Thursday, November 21 – 2:00 to 4:00 (1 session)

Where: Wynyard Showground Hall

Presenters: Rees Campbell and Col Meyers

We’re travelling to Turkey to participate in a traditional Turkish nisan, or engagement party, where gold is the most important item…the more the better! We’ll then travel south to visit the ancient ruins of Ephesus, Heirapolis, Pamukkale, the travertines and the Dilek peninsular national park. Later, to Istanbul, visiting the Blue Mosque and the spice bazaar…then off to the Black Sea coast. Well, you’ll hear our adventures if we survive crossing the airspace of Iran, Iraq and Syria!
