KUSADASI, UN VIS DE VARA / KUSADASI, A SUMMER’S DREAM

Post available in English and Romanian
Iau pas cu pas vizita in Turcia. A fost pentru prima data cand am iesit din tara, si, de asemenea, a fost prima mea calatorie cu avionul. Prima oprire: Kusadasi. Puteti afla mai multe despre aceasta destinatie de aici. Nu e o vacanta doar cu soare si mare, e si un loc incarcat de istorie. Imi place sa combin relaxarea cu vizitele in calatoriile mele, asa ca destinatia ideala contine, soare, distractie, dar si locuri istorice.

Prima oprire dupa aeroportul din Bodrum a fost Lacul Bafa, care este si o rezervatie naturala. Legenda spune ca aici, zeita Selena s-a indragostit de pastorul Endymion. Aceasta i-a cerut lui Zeus sa il adoarma pe tanar. Zeita a nascut 50 de copii din … aventura ei cu tanarul adormit.

I’m taking my visit to Turkey step by step. It was the first time I’ve gone out of the country, and also my first plane trip. First stop: Kusadasi. You can find out more about this destination here. It’s not only about sun and sea but also a very historic place. I love to combine relaxation with visiting on my trips, so I try to go for sun and fun, but also for great history.

First stop from Bodrum airport was Lake Bafa, wich is also a natural reservation. The legend says that here, the goddess Selene fell in love with the shepherd Endymion. She asked Zeus to keep the young man asleep. The goddess gave birth to fifty children from her affair with the sleeping man.

Am stat in Kusadasi, care e un oras superb. Spre deosebire de Antalya, alta destinatie populara in Turcia, Kusadasi ofera mult mai multe lucruri de facut in zonele din apropiere. Cea mai populare plaja e “Ladies Beach”, o plaja de nisip. Majoritatea hotelurilor au platforme, plajele de nisip nu sunt foarte raspandite aici.

Kusadasi inseamna insula pasarilor, dupa o insula aflata in apropierea orasului, Din nefericire, nu am avut timp sa vizitez partea aceea a orasului am auzit insa numai de bine.

Sper sa va placa pozele, si, foarte curand voi scrie si despre calatoriile pe care le-am facut cat timp am stat in Kusadasi, inclusiv in orasul antic Efes.

We stayed in Kusadasi, wich is a beautiful city. As a difference to another popular sea destination in Turkey, Antalya, Kusadasi has more trips to offer in the close areas. The most popular beach there is Ladies Beach, with sand. The majority of hotels have a platform, sandy beaches are not as common in Kusadasi.

Kusadasi  means “bird island”, wich comes from an island close to the city. Unfortunately, I never got to visit that part, but I’ve heard only good things.

I hope you will enjoy the pictures, and really soon I’ll get to all the trips around Kusadasi, including the ancient city of Ephesus.
