On the third day, at the Fethiye harbour we boarded on the ship and went to a nice five-hourlong cruise around small islands, along the south Turkish coast. We stopped at two places where we could either admire the beautiful natural scenery or be so brave and have a swim in the sea. We enjoyed both of these activities

Pamukkale, the UNESCO World Heritage Site, is located in south-western Turkey. Pamukkale is in total about 2,700 metres long and 160 m high. Sometimes called Cotton Castle, Pamukkale was created by the hot spring waters that flow out at the centre of the ancient city of Hierapolis. There are 17 hot water springs in which the temperature ranges from 35 °C to 100 °C. The water emerges from the spring deposits calcium carbonate which is main element that is Pamukkale made of. Calcium carbonate is deposited by the water as a soft jelly but this eventually hardens into travertine.
