We have made it to Southern Turkey, and I am instantly obsessed with this place!! It contains everything I love about the world — amazing hospitality, delicious food, mind-blowing history and beautiful ancient wonders.
My friend Anil and I have been exploring the ins and outs of Antakya and the Hatay province, which reminds me a lot of Syria given it’s close proximity.
Some of you guys may remember that about 10 months ago, I spent 2 incredible weeks in Syria — and considering that the border is just a 1 hour drive away, I had to spontaneously go there and see what I could discover. My curiosity led the way.
It ended up being a really special experience to spend time in the border town of Yayladagi, where I was fascinated at the mix of Turkish/Syrian culture.
Here is the full story, I hope you enjoy!
