Turkey - Sam's Exotic Travels in the Aegean Region

The Aegean Region (Ege Bölgesi), is one of the 7 census-defined regions of Turkey.  It is located in the west part of the country, bounded by the Aegean Sea (Ege Denizi) on the west, Marmara region on the north, Mediterranean region on the south & southwest and Central Anatolia region on the east.  It was the last of the three regions we visited in 2007 - and one of the most surprising and rewarding - with it's impressive Roman ruins, the beauty of the terraces of Pamukkale and the picturesque seaport of Kudasi.
