This tour through the unexpected sides of Turkey was a hidden gem. The mix of stunning landscapes reminiscent of Switzerland and Sri Lanka, along with the cultural experiences like visiting Sumela Monastery and tasting the local cuisine in Hamsikoy, provided a unique perspective on the diverse beauty of Turkey heartheart

Exploring the Switzerland-esque valleys, Sri Lankan-style tea-covered hills, and desolate grassy landscapes of Turkey was a delightful surprise. The visit to Sumela Monastery was awe-inspiring, and indulging in the traditional black sea foods in Hamsikoy was a culinary delight. The beauty and serenity of Uzungöl's high steppes were truly rejuvenating yesyes

The tour through the unexpected sides of Turkey was a remarkable journey of discovery.

The tour through the lesser-known landscapes of Turkey was a revelation. From the stunning Sumela Monastery atop the Pontic mountains to the charming village of Hamsikoy with its delicious black sea foods, and the breathtaking Uzungöl with its refreshing high steppes, each destination offered a unique and unexpected experience. Truly a hidden gem heart

My two-day trip from Istanbul to Trabzon was an unforgettable experience. The scenic drive along the Black Sea coast was simply breathtaking. Trabzon is a charming city with a rich history and culture. I loved exploring the ancient monasteries and mosques.

The Black Sea region has a unique cultural identity that sets it apart from the rest of Turkey. It was fascinating to learn about the local traditions and customs.

Trabzon's bazaar is a shopper's paradise. I picked up some beautiful handmade souvenirs and gifts for friends and family back home.

I highly recommend taking a boat tour of the Black Sea while in Trabzon. It's a great way to see the coastline and spot dolphins and other marine life.
