Hi Marianne and Chris
The views were beautiful and I really enjoyed seeing the frescoes- you're right to encourage people to support renovations
Again, the Turkish people never fail to offer their kindness, great ambassadors for their country - the meal looked so delicious
Hope you find a generator soon

I was in there last year. When i back to my town, everyone ask that " Did you visit Sümela Monastry?" :) . I said that: "Yeah, i visited :)"

Clicked straight away. I loved Sumela Monastery when I went there. The view looking up to the monastery and from the monastery is amazing! Thanks for the vid guys 😊

When you go to Sumela, you also go to Uzungöl. I am sure you will get a very nice view with drones there. You definitely won't regret it.
Do not forget to go to Boztepe in Ordu.

The climate in north east part of Turkey is like Ireland. If you want sun, you need to go to west or south. :)
