Thai Islands, Cambodia and Turkey

After leaving Malaysia we spent another week in Bangkok before going to a couple of Thai Islands. First was Koh Samet for about a week followed by Ko Chang.

In a hotel in Phnom Penh we saw this poster so decided to go & try our hand at teaching English.

After yet another week in Bangkok, we finally returned to Turkey in the middle of June. We then spent a week in Istanbul and a week in Assos before travelling back to Turgutreis, Bodrum.

We were made very welcome at friends hotel in Sultanahmet, Istanbul. If you're looking for a place to stay in Istanbul, please go and see Turgut at the Kervan Guest House. The picture above is a view from our balcony.

We moved on from Istanbul to Assos, a beautiful coastal area near Cannakale staying for a couple of nights at the Joy Inn, which is owned by a T.V. celebrity Defne Joy Foster.

We finally arrived back in Turgutreis early in July, rented an apartment & stayed for the summer. Didem & I split up again a month or two later though, so I'm now travelling on my own once more and am currently in Mexico. I'll start blogging again in the next few days but in the meantime you can read about the Yoga school I'm going to be helping out at.



Namaste
