Today I’m pleased to interview his son, Andy Steves, who has become a travel expert in his own right with his company Weekend Student Adventures.

TweetOur modern concept of Europe is relatively new. It’s common to say, “I’m going traveling in Europe for the summer,” but what does that mean? What is this collection of independent nations we now call Europe? My background in international politics had me thinking about what Turkey’s place in the world is while I was […]
Tweet I hope you haven’t had your fill of Turkey, both the food and the country, because I’m excited to share some of my favorite photos from Istanbul, taken on my last night in the country before I spent a long night at the airport. I was staying at Cheers Lighthouse hostel in Sultanahmet, located […]
Tweet If you’re planning your first trip to Europe or your Grand Tour of sorts, you have a lot of options for the best ways to see Europe. Each option benefits a different type of traveler, whether you’re traveling alone or with friends, on the cheap or splurging, and planned out or winging it. While […]
Tweet My wake up call comes at 5:30 am. I was so excited that I barely slept and I laid out my clothes and camera in advance. I was picked up by the folks of Royal Balloon, where I was served a full breakfast before we headed out to the launch point. There are few experiences […]
Tweet The Mars-esque landscape of Cappadocia was settled by Hittites and early Christians in the 1800s BC. The unique, and somewhat phallic, rock formations made Cappadocia one of Turkey’s top tourist sites, which is actually made up of a handful of towns surrounding the national park. Göreme is the most popular and has many restaurants and […]
Tweet Would you believe me if I told you this wasn’t my first time? There have been caves before, Coober Pedy in Australia, and caves since, last week in Tennessee, but none quite measured up to where I stayed in Cappadocia. In the land of fairy chimneys and Mars-esque landscapes, I found myself staying at […]
TweetThis is the second installment in a series about my experiences traveling through Turkey with BusAbout. For part 1, which covers the overland Turkey Adventure, see this post. Before I even thought about traveling overland through Turkey, I knew I wanted to sail there. I had heard about the Sail Turkey trip that BusAbout offered […]
Tweet When I was planning my trip for this season, I knew I wanted to go to Turkey but didn’t know how to go about it. This was another trip where I felt more comfortable joining a tour rather than traveling alone. Once I saw that BusAbout, one of my favorite tour companies, offered a […]
Tweet What made my trip to Turkey so memorable was definitely the people, but the food also stands out in my mind. I’d had “Mediterranean style” cuisine before, namely kebabs, but I had dishes I’d never heard of and may never find back home. What’s so memorable isn’t necessarily the restaurants themselves but the dishes, […]
