Olympos

Last week a few friends and I went to Olympos, a small area on the southern coast of Turkey in Antalya Province. We stayed in a hostel filled with fruit trees, lounged on the beach, and swam in the Mediterranean. It is a beautiful place and I know I’ll be back someday.

The Mediterranean. We swam around that point and into a cave!
