Today we’re in Bodrum, a port city on the Aegean Sea. The Castle of St. Peter, which overlooks the harbor and marina, was built by the Crusaders in the 15th century. The town is popular with tourists, sailors, and shoppers.
Kusadasi is great for shoppers – everything from authentic rugs to fake watches, handbags, and track suits. Bargaining is expected and everyone is very upfront and honest about their “authentic fake” merchandise.
We are sailing on a 12 night Mediterranean cruise aboard Royal Caribbean’s Splendour of the Seas. The ship is sailing from Venice to Montenegro, Greece, Turkey, and Croatia.
