Cycling the World of Wonders (of the World)

This report’s podcast is only available in german: In der Welt der (Welt-)Wunder.
South of Izmir, mass tourism begins on the Turkish Aegean coast, but between the hotel cities hides one ancient Greek (wonder-of-the-world) city after another. We suffer a little from tourism, agriculture and especially the lack of nature in this region, but when we reach the southern coast of Turkey the situation changes: There are once again a few mountains to overcome, which are too steep for fields and therefore densely forested. We still swim in the sea at night in mid-November, visit a ghost town that has been abandoned for 100 years, and explain what Santa Claus is doing in Demre’s town emblem.
We always appreciate your critisism, praise and other suggestions or hints and invite you to send us them via email@example.com!
We are going to get on our bicycles once again and further collect kilometers :-)
See you again soon!
