I'm lucky enough to work for one of the larger travel agents in Australia. I don't neccessarily get cheap travel (sometime but it's certainly not a given), but I do derive an enormous amount of inspiration from work, there is always someone heading off or arriving back from somewhere exciting.

Time basically ran out on us and we were left with only two further stops in Turkey: Pamukkale and Selçuk.  It's a fair hike on a bus to get from the coast to Pamukkale but the dual attractions of the white, mineral water filled terraces and the ruins of ancient Hierapolis make it a worthwhile trip. We booked in for two days but should have only stayed one as the town  of Pamukkale itself was an oddly se... Read More »
