Into the second week of our fabulous Mystery Tour. Read on to find out how our travellers spent last weekend - crossing the border into the enigmatic and little-visited country of Georgia.
So we are nearly at the end of our first week on the Mystery Tour. Today the clients woke up in their homestay at Savsat. Homestays have become a real highlight of many Imaginative Traveller trips - what better way to get under the skin of a country? Our travellers will trek to a small lake to enjoy the local nature and wild flowers of the stunningly beautiful and little visited valleys of the so-called 'Turkish Alps' whilst keeping a watchful eye for bears!
Things have been so busy around here with enquiries about next year's mystery tour, that we forgot to tell everyone where our bunch of extremely Imaginative Travellers have been over the past couple of days.
Yesterday, on Day 5 of the mystery tour, the group had an early departure from Van to Dogubeyazit where they visited Ishakpasa Palace.
Well its Day 4 of the much talked about Mystery Tour - the travellers are today enjoying a wonderful day in AKDAMAR ISLAND – Today they will have a boat excursion to Akdamar Island in Lake Van where there is Church of Holy Cross a beautiful sample of Armenian architecture.
I have done some research on this place and it is simply stunning! What a time our adventurers are having!
