Gobekli Tepe in Turkey is the oldest known temple in the world, dating back at least 9,000 years. This place will cause historians to rewrite history – would hunter-gatherers really know how to build walls, raise stone monoliths, and lay down waterproof floors?
In Istanbul a waiter at a restaurant in a former mosque quietly assured me that I wouldn’t like the turnip juice at his establishment because of where I came from.
At the other end of the Mediterranean, I travel to see the world’s finest footballer play in front of his home crowd and I am rewarded by seeing him score a sumptuous free-kick.
In other words, there’s somewhere for everyone. This is a combination of a travel guide and a travel diary and people will discover at least one place they’d like to visit themselves.
Travel never ceases to amaze me. Places recently unearthed will rewrite our history, people I meet provide me with a view of myself I’d never appreciated, and performers show me how to play a game in a manner I could only dream about.
