Welcome to what will become the travel blog of our trip to Turkey and Greece, November/December 2019. We have not been to either country before and are excited at the prospect. We are very light travellers: my 16 inch carry-on bag is packed and ready to go at 14 pounds. Not bad for enough gear to last a month. I’ll post my minimalist’s packing list shortly. Packing light allows us to take advantage of public transit, which in turn gives us the opportunity to experience more of the countries we visit. Hope you enjoy our blog.
