Back in Australia!

What an amazing adventure I had on the other side of the world! As much as I would love to go into detail about it all I just don't have the energy to sit and write so I will give you a brief overview :)

Neil and I arrived in Istanbul after landing and got to spend the entire day there looking around and exploring, we visited some great sites including the underground columns and the Museums which were amazing! We also went to the markets, that was an experience on its own.



The next day we flew to Athens where we spend nine days and had the most fantastic time. We went to every archeological site and Museum that we could find and sometimes ventured out to other places such as the Greek Islands and Delphi.

I also did my final week of training in Athens before the Lycian Way Ultramarathon back in Turkey. I went for a couple of training runs but spent most of my time in the Hotel Gym due to almost getting attacked by a pack of dogs one morning around the Acropolis. I also did a 42.2 km training run from Athens to the town of Marathon which is something I have wanted to do for quite a long time!
When it was time to start the race Neil flew back to Brisbane and I flew to Dalaman in Turkey. I have included a link below that talks all about the race which is another story all on its own. What I can say about it is that it was the most hardest and challenging race I have ever done! I am so happy to have taken part in it though as I got to meet amazing people and see Turkey for what it really is, one of the most beautiful countries in the world!
