For the third year on a row I went to Turkey in early summer - this time a round trip in the Eastern part of the country.
After a organized group travel (2008) and an individual trip (2009), I now went with a small group of five people, three
moderately fanatic bird watchers, our guide Matty Musters, and myself. The challenge was to find a good compromise between
our different interests - something we managed quite well to do! By following the birdwatchers sometimes, I came to places
I wouldn't immediately choose to visit myself - which led to some pleasant surprises!
