The Beach / Ayvalik, Turkey

Umbrella I - Ayvalik, Turkey
I┬ácame to Ayvalik, Turkey, for a photo. A photo, more specifically, of the incredible beach with its coloured umbrellas and food and mountainous Greek isles on the horizon.┬áThis is the image on the cover of my guidebook, and I’m clearly poaching their idea. Although without access to the rooftops of beachside buildings, such a photo is impossible to get. But I did get a great day on the sand and a few more spent relaxing and reading in a fun and quirky pension, with cool people and great views of the city.
