I am always intrigued when anyone takes a trip to an exotic locale. Turkey is one such place! In fact, from what I have been told, Turkey is very, very fascinating. So, when I heard from a Headland, Alabama resident that she had gone on a trip to Turkey, I just had to inquire further. Here are some photos from Monica Locke's visit to the former Ottoman Empire.
The Domaboche was the home of the Sultans until Turkey became a republic.
