Photos from north-eastern Turkey


I flew from Istanbul to the North-East of Turkey, which is much less visited than the southern shores, but holds many surprises. I started in Erzurum, which has many ancient buildings from mosques to tombs to medressas. Next, I travelled to the Black Sea coastal valleys of Sumela and Uzungol, near Trabzon. Finally, I had a very pleasant stay in the Georgian valley of Bahral.
