Michael I am now back home in Australia and thought that I would jot down a few impressions with my thanks
Everything went extremely well.

The accommodation was interesting with one of the bathrooms inside a cupboard-no big deal .Generally the hotels chosen were definitely an example of the typical architecture of the town where I was staying.

Safranbolu was a treat with a beautiful room, a really fantastic restaurant/ kitchen/cook and great service -. I did not realise the significance of the plasric overshoes until i was out the following day. Everyone there went out of their way to make me comfortable and provide an enjoyable stay.

The driver who took me to Amasra was exceptional and if you can possibly retain his services on a regular basis you would be well rewarded. He was punctual, kind,an excellent and safe driver and was able to converse in some fashion even though he had limited English. Amasra is not "cute" it is incredibly picturesque, intersting and a delight. The Cute will put off Australians that might be interested in travelling to that area.

I really enjoyed Amasya and spent much time walking from one place to another with some interesting experiences on the way. The owner's ??? offsider was able to sort out a problem for me with the computer and spoke a fair bit of english. This young man was a real gem.

I had a great time - everything went extremely well and I thoroughly enjoyed myself .

Thank you so much for organising the trip and making sure that all was as planned.

I guess all this confirms for me that Turkey is a great place to visit and it will remain on my list of favourite places in the world

Cheers and thanks for your assistance . 

PS in case you ever get to north Queensland it would be a pleasure to host your visit and show you and you wife around.
