Turkye 2023

Ervaar een van die mees verrassende lande ter wêreld - met GEEN Visumkoste van toepassing nie!
30 September - 11 Oktober 2023 

Istanbul is iets wat mens nooit vir iemand kan beskryf nie. Ons gaan in die strate en by markte rondloop, die Spice Market en Grand Bazaar is meer as ‘n belewenis, ‘n bootvaat op die Bosphorus, ons besoek Efese waar Paulus duisende jare gelede gepreek het en waar hulle toe reeds spoeltoilette en waterverwarming gehad het! 

Jy kan gaan lê in die warm water van die kalsiumpoele van Pamukkale. In Capadoccia sien jy hoe honderde meter se lawa-as gekompakteer geraak het en ‘n onbeskryflike kabouter-maanlandskap geskep het waarin mense gewoon het en waarin ons hotel gedeeltelik ingebou is. Opsioneel: ‘n Rit in ‘n warmlug-ballon wat jy nooit  as te nimmer sal vergeet nie. Turkye is ‘n paradys vir koop met die oog of met die beursie: Matte, leerware, juweliersware, kruie en speserye, Turkish Delight…..
