During our cruise to the Greek islands this summer, Travis and I had a day trip to Turkey. Did you know that most of Turkey is actually in Asia? There’s only a small part of Turkey that’s in Europe. I had NO IDEA! Istanbul is split into Europe and Asia by the Bosphorus Strait. I had no idea that this is where part of the Europe/Asia border is until Travis and I went on our day trip to Turkey and we were told that we’re actually in Asia now! I thought this was really cool. Travis didn’t seem to care too much [insert confused emoji here]. Here are some educational maps to show you what I mean:
Anyway, back to our day trip.
The Greek islands are what dreams are made of. Travis and I had been dreaming of going to the Greek islands for a few years. We actually planned to go two years ago for our honeymoon, but due to a series of unfortunate events on that side of the world, we had to cancel the trip. We didn’t wait too long until we planned the next trip! This time we wanted to do a Silversea cruise to the Greek islands.
Continuing the post-graduation trip to Ireland and Scotland… Read the “Part One” post, if you haven’t already.
Many people ask me which country I liked better. If I had to pick a favorite between Ireland and Scotland, I think I would pick Scotland because it won me over just a little bit. I can’t pinpoint exactly why but my husband and I both feel the same way! Both countries were amazing but if we were to go back, we would go to Scotland.
After graduating from college, I took a trip to Ireland and Scotland with my husband (boyfriend at the time) and his family. Aside from moving across the world from Russia to the U.S., this post-graduation trip was the biggest trip I had ever been on back in 2013. I have never seen a more beautiful countryside or so many castles!
