Diane's review for another Explore tour
“A poem about our trip:Upon the Turkish coastline, on Kas we did descend. With many fun and frolics that would last us till the end. We'd meet outside the airport or our first place of stay. Where our great tour leader would tell us of our days. Then down the Xanthos river, canoeing we would go. Spotting birds and terrapins in the banks and growths. The tranquil views and waters, we'd see along the way. Would make us stop and reminisce on our fantastic day. But soon we'd come to realise that this was just the start. With many more adventures in which we would take part. We'd hike the Taurus mountains to the grey rock summit. Where we'd view the stunning scenes, and hope we do not plummet. On the way we'd soon spot some mountain goats and horses. Admiring from a distance their beauty and their forces. Then as our walk did finish, on the bus we did descend. But more adventures were to come before the day did end. Dropped at the Turkish sauna. Some thrills we soon did have. With pain and joy and screaming heard throughout the baths. And by the end some of us were clean both in and out. With all their muscles loosened they relaxed, their is no doubt.The next day was soon upon us and cycling we did go. Soaring through the forests and along the mountain roads. Some of us were fitter and made it to the top, of the steepest hills, whilst the rest of us did stop. But we all enjoyed the moments of mesmerising views and personalised achievements that each of us got through. And as an added bonus, when the cycling came to end. We got to spend some chill out time at the beech amongst our friends. We swam within the waters and strolled through glistening sand. Making pics and memories of this fantastic land.Then our adventures did turn, to the sea and shore. Where we sailed and kayaked and snorkled and much more. We swam amongst the fishes where we saw a sunken tank and felt the swishing water go gently through our hands. We then soon did kayak across the tranquil sea, where some of us were better at stearing, that's not me ;). Our final day did allow a time for fun and rest. We'd board a stunning gullet where we'd swim and chill and jest. The final meal then did come where we'd say our final words. We'd think about the fun we had whilst we laughed and did converse. Then that sad time did come where we would say goodbye and back towards our homeland we then did have to fly. We'll always have our memories of the joy and laughs we had, the friendships we have made. The adventures within Kas. ”
