V-GO cruise part two
I am on a gullet traveling along the Turkish coast. The views are outstanding. The atmosphere is relaxed and restful. I am laying back watching the coast go by and some small islands go by. Sally is trying to finish Shogun. She is at 99%. I have taking some pictures of the coastline and then I started writing/typing this. We will be to Kas in another hour.
We had lunch in Kas off the boat. I bought a swim suit and we headed back to the boat.
The week so far has been relaxing. Each night we have been in a quiet place for the night and a good place to swim. We hit Karkam and hiked up to a castle and then cruised the sunken city across the bay. We are now in a nice bay with lots of tiny islands around. We swam for a bit before having afternoon tea, which for me is coffee and cookies.
We finished our cruise along the Turkish coast with V-GO Yachting and Travel. It was great. We spent 7 days on a boat off the Turkish coast. It was a great trip. We jumped into the cool waters everyday. We moved to small bays or coastal towns each day. We did not really pay attention to where we were going, but were along for the ride. The Germans would talk about this and that and ask if that would be okay. We did not care. We were there to relax. This was their 5th year of doing this cruise so we were okay of they wanted to change it up. What did we know? We hit the highlights and swam in the sea.
I would really recommend this type of small boat cruise and I would recommend Turkey. We love Turkey. It is a great place to visit. Forget to crap you hear about the safety. You can die in a car crash any day of the week. Turkey is safe and we have really enjoyed our visit.

As a caveat I need to say this about the V-GO gullet cruise. We were assured by the captain of the ship that Sally's medication was placed in the refrigerator and not the freezer. She asked twice. At the end of the week we found it in the freezer. It was completed destroyed. This is not a life and death situation, but it was $10,000 in medication that was not cared for properly. Sally missed one of her shots and she was feeling the effects for missing this by the time we got back to Portland. It cost us over $1000 to change out flights home and get back. The Company she gets her medication from was AWESOME and replaced the medication at no charge (Humera). There are many companies that do the gullet cruises and although I really enjoyed the cruise and would not use V-GO again. We do not know how the medication ended up in the freezer and we should have walked it down and checked on it. Live and learn. This will never happen again and luckily Sally was able to get new medication send to Portland. It could not be sent overseas due to customs.
As I said before we are really looking forward to Yellowstone and Banff and I think this change in plans is a good one.
I would go on a gullet cruise again, but I would not use V-GO Yachting and travel again. I believe it was just one person that made a mistake, but it was a big one and a costly one and it should never had occurred.
