If you know me or if you read my blog, you’ll know that I almost always stay in hostels. They’re cheap and lively and I never spend enough time in my room to need much more than the basics that they offer.
We have already seen some of Kaleici since it’s close to hour hotel, but today we went out with the full intention of exploring every bit of Antalya’s Old Town. If your hostel or hotel is near the tram, we found that this is the easiest way to get to Kaleici. It costs 10 lira ($3.
On the same day we visited Termessos, we also decided to check out Karain Cave. It’s the perfect side trip if you’re already going to be visiting Termessos because it’s only 20 minutes away.
Today we set out for Termessos, the ruins of an ancient city which sits over 3,000 feet up Solymos mountain. You can get here pretty easily with public transportation but we still had our rental car and it was quicker and easier for us to drive.
We’ve been having a hard time waking up because of the time change, but this morning we made it a point to get out early. When researching public transportation in Antalya, I found a few websites with instructions to Kursunlu Waterfalls, but they were pretty dated.
I arrived in Antalya three nights ago, but my bag did not. So while Nick has been working, I’m trying to figure out how to make my casual plane clothes work for a multitude of occasions.
Nick played his first concert in Antalya last night.

Yesterday we spent the day walking around Djurgarden and experiencing what this unique island has to offer. A large part of the island is mainly forest with a bunch of walking trails throughout, so our plan was to cover the entire perimeter.
If there’s one thing I’ve learned from spending time in Sweden, it’s that this country is very proud of ABBA. Today Nick and I took the ferry to Djurgården where the ABBA Museum happens to be and we spent a considerable amount of time inside.
Yesterday I finally met up with Nick! His train got in from Malmo around 2pm and we checked into his hotel. For the past few days, I’ve been a bag lady.

It’s been getting dark pretty early, so around 4pm I had no choice but to return to Johanna. She was significantly warmer than the outside but still pretty chilly, so I threw another log on the fire.
