Our first host in Istanbul, Ece, was the kindest person. We spent one night on the Prince’s Islands with her mom at their summer house and we had a really nice time eating fish, drinking ‘raki’ and watching them sing old Turkish songs. Our Turkish hosts have been so, so welcoming and hospitable. We will really miss Turkey, its food and people.

We are in Turkey, where the kebaps are beef instead of pork and even more delicious!

Today Clyde and I rented an ATV and drove around Naxos island. We ran into some goats and Clyde wanted to make friends.

So enjoying our little breakfasts on our little balcony in Naxos.
