My Travel Journal

"There isn't much I haven't shared with you along the road and through it all there'd always be tomorrow's episode" - Elton John

I started traveling around the world since early 80s when I had the opportunity to combine business trips with vacations. Then later when my rezeki is in abundance, there were numerous other trips along the way for vacations, most of the time with hubby and the kids when the timing is right. I have also started to compile the journal and photo-pages covering almost more than 25 years of world wide travel. Some destinations I visited just once, others many times. Many of those places are the obvious famous places people would like to visit but some, the casual traveler doesn't even think to try. I have placed links to my travel at the side bar of my personal page, My Life Reflections, and will be updating them from time to time.

My wish is to continue my travel and complete circumnavigate the globe, insyaAllah…

Kusadasi, Turkey

"I would gladly live out of a suitcase if it meant I could see the world..."

Day 02: Friday, 15 April 2016

We arrived at Kusadasi around 2:30 pm and checked in the Marina Hotel & Suite and rested the whole afternoon. We had our dinner at the hotel restaurant around 7:30 pm. It was cool when we took a stroll around the hotel at night.

Kuşadası, Turkey

Kuşadası is a beach resort town on Turkey’s western Aegean coast. A jumping-off point for visiting the classical ruins at nearby Ephesus. It is a major cruise ship stop. Its seafront promenade, marina and harbour are lined with hotels and restaurants. Just offshore on Pigeon Island is a walled Byzantine castle that once guarded the town, connected to the mainland via causeway.

Day 03: Saturday, 16 April 2016

We had breakfast and checked out early, leaving one bag behind to be stored in the hotel. This morning we are going to board the M/V Celestyal Olympia Cruise ship for our Aegean Sea island hopping adventure.

Sylvio Leather Outlet, Kusadasi

Before going to the port, we made a brief stop at a leather outlet. We sipped Pomegranate tea while watching a fashion show displaying latest styles and fashions. After browsing a great selection of high end jackets we ended up buying a pair of matching reversible leather jackets.
