penpals?

Postby Desislava » Mon May 29, 2006 2:20 pm

Well..I am feeling a bit of nostalgia towards the past forms of communication :) There is something really romantic and beautiful about the old kind of letters. Perhaps..first is the effort made by the sender to make his handwriting legible :), second - the long way that the poor letter travels..and third - the tortured look it has when it's put in the post box, after suffering all the adventures. Well..and the anticipation related to all this...
So..what I wanted to ask..is whether there is someone who wants to write letters with me. But...someone..who has to bear in mind that I enjoy long talks, which appear to make sense, even if there is no evident result at the end. :) so...hm.. if you want leave me a message, and we'll make a deal then :)

I think you are talking about the book "the lycian way" that is writen by Kate Clow and so I did not read this book yet and do not know his route but for example(I am a musician...) last summer I has to been in Didyma for playing in party...but in day time I visited the temple of apollo with my friends.At that time I can not describe my feeling in front of this glory...And so I can give you guarantee for your pleasure about your decider....anyway I am living in İZMİR and I visited all historical place that is in here...

In fact I didn't know that there was a book...I am subscribed for a site..recommending trips and places worth visiting, and one of the editions was dedicated to Turkey - the 20 best places to visit in Turkey, 10 of them traditional and 10 - quite adventurous. The Lucian Way is a footpath long about 500km between Fethiye and Antalya. As i searched for more information I found out that Kate Clow has managed to find sponsors, so that the way could be marked, but I didn't know that she's written a book...Anyway, it seems to me absolutely fantastic, really challenging and I am ready to try it. Plus, Turkey is so near :)
