Friday Fun Facts-Turkey

Turkey remains high at the top of my destination wish list and if I had the chance to go anywhere in the world tomorrow it would be between either Turkey or Peru (I think Peru would win out in the end for the whole Spanish language factor since my Turkish is zilch). But for now here are some fun facts about one of the most incredibly historic countries on the planet:

-Istanbul is the only city in the world that is built on two continents, Asia and Europe. Its former name was Constantinople.

-Western Turkey was the site of the famous Trojan Wars and today visitors can see the famous Trojan Horse.

The Virgin Mary lived her last years of her life in Turkey in a small cottage near Ephesus.
