History Travel YES friends

Our YES friends Brian and Beth have been travelling the world staying almost for “free” using a “home share” approach, and are currently in an interesting part of Turkey. They stay for free in peoples home’s in exchange for taking care of their pets, and/or doing maintenance on the home. In the past few years, they have traveled to many exotic, off the beaten path places including, Costa Rica, Panama, Ecuador, France, Portugal using the “work away” platform.

The links below relate the their Facebook posts about Turkey, including several well produced videos. They include seeing “Cave” Hotels, camels, and unique towns filled with sandcastle like homes, and Flintstone era cave homes.

Ephesus Ancient City, Turkey. At its peak in the first and second centuries AD, Ephesus was one of the grandest cities of the ancient world. With a staggering quarter-million residents, Ephesus was the second-biggest city in the empire, after Rome. It was fun to think Julius Caesar, Anthony and Cleopatra, St. Paul, St. John—and maybe even the Virgin Mary—all walked the same marble roads as us. (with Video)Facebook Feb 26
