I tried to make it small and attach it... Maybe this will work.

Is this what you meant by your projected plan?

North America / Canadian Towns
« Last post by Spike Colby on June 22, 2015, 04:56:49 PM »
I think there's a "standard route" for people travelling the 3000km across North America near the 49th parallel. Actually, I think there are two routes.
1) take the Trans-Canada Highway
2) Drop down to the US at some point (some people say the whole way just below the border, some say just to get under the Great Lakes) and hug the border.

I think it would be cool to see some Canadian cities and towns that AREN'T on this well travelled road. Stay off the Highway 1, or at least veer off often and see places that aren't kept alive by a gas station and 4 fast-food joints.

Unfortunately, I think the most exciting cities are probably far north. Talk about Stigmatized, ignored, etc...
The Itinerary / Interactive map?

Having an interactive map sounds like a great idea.
To start, I'd love to see even your "general idea" on a map - might help us to visualize the trip and mould it in a shape of our choosing.

Wow. That sounds really beautiful Christie! I agree, no one really knows Turkey outside of Istanbul. In fact, I find in general people assume a capital is an easy summation what the country has to offer, which is not the case at all. It's just the tip of the iceberg. This is a wonderful suggestion and will be added to the map with the other suggestion this week! Thank you!

Hi Ira!

Isaac and I recently returned home from a trip to Turkey. We began in Istanbul and then made our way to Izmir where we quickly rented a car and sought to explore the "countryside" areas (i.e. not sprawling metropoli) of the country.

The number one question I got prior to going, from friends and family alike, was "why?" -- why on earth would we choose Turkey when there were so many "beautiful" places to visit. It seems like a very stigmatized place and when tourists do go, they tend to stick to the urban centres.

Isaac and I found the less popular towns and cities in the country to be amazing. Every city, it seems, has some sort of greco-roman-jewish history and it was fascinating to explore. Many places outside of the cities had sights were Isaac and I were the only observers.

It's definitely a place I would recommend exploring.

I have always wanted to explore Fitzroy in Melbourne, it looks beautiful and artsy and fun from everything I've seen!
