Hump Day Post: Ephesus

I’m currently cataloguing my photos as I’ve recently learned that Apple is going to get rid of iPhoto – some 20,000+ photos to for me to go through! Joy!

Whilst going through the process, I came across this photo of the Library in Ephesus, Turkey. One of the things that stuck in my mind was that most men would frequent the Library on a regular basis and took the serious appearance of studying. The reality was that there was a secret passage from the library to a brothel – hence the frequent ‘learning’ a man had to do 🙂

Ephesus was an ancient Greek city on the coast of Ionia, three kilometres southwest of present-day Selçuk in İzmir Province, Turkey. It was built in the 10th century BC on the site of the former Arzawan capital by Attic and Ionian Greek colonists.’ – Wikipedia

About Retired2Travel

My passion has been for many, many years landscape photography so when the chance came up to retire early, in order to travel, I took it! It made sense then to marry the two (travel and photography) and create this blog. I hope you enjoy it :)

  1. Nice photo but I was struck by Apple getting rid of IPhoto. I’m off to learn who, what, when and where. 🙂
