I let you guys decide where we will go next, and I must say I’m SO excited you picked TURKEY! I’ve secretly wanted to go back there for a while now. I’ve been twice now and I can never get enough. Turkey is truly one of the most diverse countries in the world with SO much to offer and so many amazing places to experience.
If you’ve been a little too afraid to make the journey there yourself, this is the perfect opportunity to come experience the country with a small group of girls! In my 2 visits to Turkey, I have never once felt unsafe. It’s an incredible place and I’m excited to share my favorite places with you!
This trip is special because I have hand picked the best places based on my experience there and excluded the places that weren’t worth it. Turkey is huge and although I haven’t been everywhere, I can assure you we will visit all the top highlights of Turkey! It’s going to be a lot packed into 10 days, but SO worth it, and you won’t go home missing out on any of the best places in Turkey.

Is This Trip for You?
If you are a fun loving adventurous spirit with a good sense of humor and love meeting new people and experiencing different cultures, this trip is for you! These trip will focus mainly on adventure activities, and photography, so a love for both is a must!
This Trip is NOT for you if:
If you love drama, drugs, or getting black-out wasted every night, this trip is NOT for you. This is for the more mature traveler who doesn’t mind long days of adventures and photo taking.
This trip is probably not for you if you are a budget traveler. My group trips will mimic my traveler style, which I describe as “ballin on a budget” (I heard it on a rap song and thought it described my style perfectly). This style means not budget, but not super luxury. Basically, I like nice places, but I find awesome deals to make them cheaper. Most the accommodations we stay in will be comfortable, cute, and unique.
Non-refundable deposit: $500 due TBD
Total trip cost: $1790 due 60 days before the trip
