ephesus, turkey:

So despite suffering from ruin fatigue after visiting  Hierapolis, Ephesus still was incredibly impressive! It is an ancient Greek city, which later became a major Roman city, on the west coast of Turkey. During the Roman period, it was for many years the second largest city of the Roman Empire coming in behind Rome. It had a population of more than 250,000 in the 1st century BC, which also made it the second largest city in the world. It was pretty cool to be able to walk through an actual ancient city and it made me wish that I could time travel back to see it in its hey day - it would have been amazing. I must also mention how great it is to be travelling with an architect husband! The details he notices and information he adds has been really handy. I would have missed a lot if wasn’t for Andrew.
