Day 26 - 31; Antalya. Night bus from Cappadoccia to Antalya which in hind sight worked out but I missed the landscape of middle Turkiye on the way. Had the whole back of the bus to myself so able to catch a few winks.

Little Diving Action: When in Antalya...Go for a few dives on the cheap and not good side, but still glad I did it! Think it was 35 euros all in. Bus to boat, boat ride, lunch, 2 x dives. That's great.
Side Story: How do they do this so cheap? Shared tanks and gear. So they take 24 people and go in groups of 6 with all of the 5 guides going in and out with each group and of different levels.
|Lots of mountain range near Antalya
