What? No mention of Sorrento, and the leather-aproned waiters?? :)

Funnily enough, I don't have any photos of Sorrento and it had slipped my mind!!

Good holiday though, wasn't it?

I'm so glad you have Gower at the top!

Of course, Liz, I think it should be top of everyone's list. Have now got all excited thinking about and have a little baby idea in my mind to arrange a trip!!

I thought Turkey was very interesting. The people were friendly although they do have this fixation with rugs!? Apple tea also stands out. Ephesus was wonderful and the tour guide was excellent. I recall the huge ampitheatre. Also the little advert carved into the stone on how to find the harlots den. i think there was a secret passage that went through the library or something? Pemukale was nice and muddy, and we had a 13 year old guy propositioning my wife which was very amusing(we were on our honeymoon too at the time)
Went to other places but Ephesus was by far my favourite.

btw. Bee Gees rock!!! :-)
