This trip was my first visit to Turkey and wasn't sure what to expect. Though our tour of the seven churches kept us busy most of the days and didn't really get to experience too much of Turkish culture there was a lot of history to learn from our tour guide and of course a surprise 'magic carpet' experience that was a highlight. When they try to sell you something in Turkey it begins with a whole show and pitch explaining the hard work and quality of their product. And when it's time for you to buy, you are swarmed with sales men!
No carpets were purchased by me though I'd be awfully tempted if I had a house to fill. The views from Turkey were gorgeous and not what I expected from the country but I could've definitely spent more time soaking up the sun at the pool!
