Ephesus, Turkey & Athens, Greece
We arrived in Turkey at the Kusadasi port just as the sun was rising and then headed to Ephesus. We saw a house up on a hill where the Virgin Mary supposedly stayed for a short while and then we made our way to the ancient village of Ephesus:
Spotted a flea market near the Plaka district but since our suitcases were already pretty tight, we just took a quick look. We did find some gorgeous jewelry including some fun turquoise necklaces and a floating crystal necklace that I am seriously obsessed with. And I picked up a Greek Vogue for my coffee table collection.
After lunch, we decided to make our way to see the Parthenon. I have to say, I am soooo glad we parted ways with our group and made the hike up on our own. The views alone were worth it and seeing the structure up close was mind-blowing. Here are a few of my favorites:
Gorgeous Athens … annnnd the leather bomber jacket I picked up the day before in Turkey.
On Thursday, I’ll be sharing our time spent in Pompeii, Sorento and Capri. Hope you enjoy!
