Last week I took a bus trip from the northern part of Turkey to a Mediterranean city. I could have flown from Istanbul to this same city, but I decided to take a bus. The trip took 8 1/2 hours, and was very relaxing. One each seat back there is a screen with a selection of movies, TV stations, music, games as well as internet connection. There is a USB plugg-in if you want to charge your iPod or similar device. During the trip they serve coffee, tea, and give a snack, as well as stop for 30 minutes about halfway to give opportunity for a meal or just a break. The cost of the trip was about $60 US dollars. They also have a service from bus stations in most major cities. It was a good time to catch up on e-mail, edit photos, journal as well as read.
Along the way I took some photos. Hopefully they give a feeling and sense of the trip.
