On the advice of some friends, I went from Pamukkale to Datca, a peninsula that divides the Aegean Sea and the Mediterranean. It wasn’t too tricky to get to – there are buses about four times a day from Marmaris, a major coastal hub. I camped out at Ilica Camping which was home to a friendly bunch of cats and a helpful owner. I didn’t do too much sightseeing, as I was a bit worn out from the prior 5 days in Istanbul, Ephesus and Pamukkale. I simply wandered around the small town and enjoyed the views!

As you may have seen from quite a few of my recent posts, Datça is
a favourite weekend haunt of ours too 🙂
Btw, ‘Delaware’ is not quite what you think probably… there are literally hundreds of large yachts and motor cruisers all up and down this coast bearing that same place of registration. My guess is someone here is running a business to offshore register rich guys boats here as a tax scam 🙂
Ah, interesting. I wonder what the tax benefit is of registering a boat in the US if you don’t actually keep it there?
I expect it’s probably a shell corporation with a Turkish American. We can sometimes hold dual citizenship (as I do) and expect that is where it comes in… what do I know? 🙂
