the orient expressed

It was a great thrill for us to be the inspiration for this lovely book of photos and poetry by internationally awarded author Jane Blight who journeyed with us in Turkey twice during our Turkish Aromatic Odyssey

It is a delightful read and we have added it to the recommended reading list for our Turkish Aroma Travellers.

"I lie in petals 
drown in scent 
float through a haze of 
languid memories 
velvet pink 
rose perfumed 
I lie in drifts 
pink petals piled high 
produce dreams 
of romance 
I lie in petals 
and drift"
