There's a lot of negative press around Turkey and her people but you are dispelling those fears wonderfully. The turkish people are super friendly. Thanks for sharing

I'm so glad that you guys were able to continue your trip in Turkey after the pandemic. Keep enjoying the beautiful places this country has. Ihlara Valley is one of my favorite places.

What a beautiful place to be stuck during this madness. I'm sad cos it's affecting the Turkish people's livelihoods due to lack of tourists but happy that you are able to explore in such peaceful areas. I went to Dalyan which was amazing from the delta to the turtle beach and I highly recommend it to visit if you can The Turkish people are amazing and I will never forget there hospitality. Enjoy your time.

You two should be an inspiration to many. I mean that. I personally know people who always complain about having "nicer things" here in the USA. More, more, and more. Never enough. They go on vacation for a couple of weeks a year to create memories, yet they have the means to make abundant memories and yet choose to live based on the false premise of materialism. Every day is an adventure for you two. I hope people start to realize in these times that there is more to life than what you own. Thanks again for your videos. I don't live under the false pretense that every day of your journeys is "perfect" - but I would imagine that the good outnumber the bad (by a wide margin).

Myself ( Turk ) and the Wife ( Irish ) started watching your videos recently and we are loving it 😊 Especially the videos in Turkey. I am a Turk and even I never been in those places 😊 You are doing a great job for advertising our country and people. The Turkish government should reward you for that. Thank you guys, looking forward for more nice videos 😉👏

Hiya guys just starting to watch your latest videos and thought you were meaning you were at Ulubey canyon just outside Uşak in the middle of the country. Konya is a good place to visit too where you can see the history of the whirling dervish.Turkish language is coming along nicely too by the time you move on you should be completely fluent.

Other than a few scenes at beaches I don't think you've been in any crowded places in your videos. You always park by yourselves and are the only customers in any park, restaurant or cafe. I hope Turkey succeeds in attracting more tourists.

Hello to you both from sunny Suffolk. I am loving watching all your travels and am especially loving Turkey which has a very special place in my heart as been travelling there for 25+ years. Lived in Kalkan in the late 90s for two summers with no air con or fans in the apartment. Got told to put clothes in the fridge and it worked. Cool shower at night and drape sarong from fridge over us and stayed cool enough to be able to drop off to sleep. Am working my way through your previous videos and countries too and thoroughly enjoying them. Its fabulous to look at wonderful places i've visited as well as new ones i'm putting on my to do list. Can't wait till your next installment and thanks for always making me smile when I get a notification of another video. Watching this one between my last two night shifts as can't wait till rest days 😁. You guys are just great.

I have lived in Turkey (Antalya) for twenty years and have explored this amazing country all over. It always makes me sad that some tourist come here, stay in their hotels and never leave them. There is just so much to see here and so many chances to find the real Turkey.

An example of how widespread the beauty is here, yesterday me and my brother in law, who is Turkish found a lake, just twenty minutes from my home. I had lived here for years without even knowing it was there. 😊
