Episode033: When you love Turkish food a little too much

Hello! One of our favorite parts about Turkey is the food! So in episode033, we discuss each of our top 10 list of foods we love in Turkey! We were surprised to see what each other did or did not have on their list! Also, at the beginning of this episode we talk about the local Urla Artichoke Festival and visiting another little town called Alaçatı.

Enjoy and have a great Monday!
