💬 Comments on the video

I'm from the UK but have lived in Turkey for 20 years. The reception you got was typical of Turkish hospitality. They are incredible people and Turkey is an incredible country.

If you guys make it down to Antalya, just let me know would be happy to show you around the city.

Pets crossing the boarders are tough. She lived there. She just tried to adopt you. Good move. Safe travels! I would be in bloody tears.

And they're off! I pulled up a map of Turkey as you were plotting your journey. I learned more about the geography and history of Turkey as I researched your trip with you. It is so cool that Istanbul is the only city on two continents. Your bench time looking out to sea was so refreshing at the end of your video. Onward.

There is an old wish in Turkey when you are leaving somewhere. We are pouring water after left. And says that "Go like water, come (back) like water! (Su gibi git, su gibi gel!) " I hope you'll come back later to this car park to remember your back memories :)) Greetings from Izmir, hope to see you somewhere @İzmir

This almost brought me to tears!! The circumstances were unusual but y’all made the best of it. So happy that you’re finding a new home for Corona.❤️❤️❤️

Oh, being able to stretch the legs after three months! I had tears pricking the corners of my eyes a few times in this video. Be safe, you two, as I know you will -- you always T.R. whilst you A., I've learned! ❤
