Pamukkale and Kusadasi, Turkey

I would have to say that visiting the Cotton Fortress in Pamukkale and lounging by the Aegean Sea in Kasadasi was the highlight of my trip.

En route to Pamukkale, we visited the mausoleum of the Sufi philosopher Mevlana.  Sorry, not pictures were allowed inside, but it's definitely a sight to visit.  

Beautiful sunset near our Pam Thermal Hotel in Pamukkale.

I know...totally confusing.  Um, do you swim or ski?  That's not snow btw, it's calcium deposits from the mineral waters.

More of the Cotton Fortress.  I've never seen anything like it.  And the views from the pools are spectacular with the mountains in the distance.  

I was speechless when I got to this hotel in Kusadasi.  They literally have a cart full of refreshing fruity drinks and hand it to you the minute you arrive at the hotel.  I highly recommend the Charisma Hotel- just blew me away.    

The infinity pool from the Charisma Hotel.  That's Greece in the background.

The infinity pool at the Charisma Hotel located by the Aegean Sea.  Full moon out that night.  Peaceful, quiet, perfect.  

Sunset from the balcony of our room at the Charisma Hotel.  That's one of many cruise ships in the distance, 
no doubt heading for Greece.
