Izmir

The beautiful sunset in Izmir!

Last week I visited Izmir, which is the third largest city in Turkey. It's near the Aegean Sea and it has a backdrop of mountains and a long promenade by the water with plenty of nice cafes to hang out at. It was a treat to get picked up at the airport and have a car to travel to nearby Cesme, a popular summer spot with beautiful beaches. One day went to the beach near the Sheraton hotel. The sea was a much different color than the Jersey shore and was infinitely shallow. We walked out super far and the water was still up to our calves.
