Allure of Turkey

Turkey is a beautiful country located on two continents. It is one of the first permanently inhabited places in the world. The country will enchant you with beautiful and varied landscape. When flying a hot air balloon in Cappadocia you can enjoy the view of the rocks of all shapes, rock towns and churches. You can admire certainly blue terraced pools in Pamukkale, which are listed on the UNESCO World Heritage Site list. You can meet the antic history in Ephesus, where you will be welcomed by beautiful ancient ruins. And in our travel and photo guide we will not miss the Turkish metropolis Istanbul, the seaside town of Oludeniz, a tourist resort Antalaya and the beautiful beach at Cirali, the Cesme and Myra town.

Brendan Van Son


I’m a travel photographer and journalist from a small town in Canada called Rocky Mountain House. After completing degrees in Political Science and Geography in 2008 I headed to South America to take a job that paid me only $50 a week, but allowed me to travel. I knew within 3 days of arriving in South America that I’d never stop traveling, that I needed to find a way to meld travel into my career, no matter what it took.

Over 5 years later now, I’ve visited around 80 countries on 6 different continents. I’ve done some crazy things like drive a $600 scooter down the west side of Africa. I’ve done some amazing things, as well. I count my blessings that I’m able to live this lifestyle.

In the 5 years since I’ve engaged in the life of a travel photographer and journalist my work has been in a number of major publications such as The Guardian. My travels themselves have also been featured in various major media outlets such as the BBC, National Geographic Traveler, and others.

I have no intention of slowing down. So if you like traveling and photos, follow my blog
