Lycian Way in Turkey - new book and signage
As you may have seen on the website, the new Lycian Way book and improved map is out, the site is updated (update page and accommodation) and the route has been nearly completely re-waymarked. Not a bad few months’ work! Thanks to all those who helped, including George, our map-maker, Serhan, our webmaster, Metin, our printer, Özkan and Ersin at Kaš, Jane, Deniz from Middle Earth and the various pension owners who accommodated and fed us. Next year, a version of the book will at last appear in Turkish. People who have walked the way since the re-waymarking tell me that it’s sooo easy to follow the waymarks – they don’t need the book. That wasn’t quite what I had in mind….
Meanwhile, the St Paul Trail has been neglected. However, the local authorities have begun to show an interest in the trail, and promise to help us improve the accommodation along the route. The enthusiastic mayor of Sucullu has re-marked the northern part of the route. Archaeologists are now working at Antioch in Pisidia, which adds to the interest of the site. Next year we will be re-waymarking the rest of the trail and I shall later ask for volunteers to help.
