After returning from Chios, we spent the last few days of our sweet, sweet summer in Alaçatı, an adorable little town just 15 minutes east of Çeşme. We were pretty sunburnt and tired of swimming at this point, so a couple of days of wandering through colorful streets, drinking coffee, and stuffing our faces sounded pretty perfect.
By night, the streets were an overpopulated nightmare that left me feeling a little like this, but in the mornings, they took my breath away. Hardly a soul was to be found before noon, so my husband and I had the winding, colorful alleys to ourselves for hours. I think I’ll just let the pictures do most of the talking on this one.
Alaçatı is the sort of place that really embodies summer, with bright pops of color and flowers hanging above the streets. It was a nice way to bid farewell to the season before long, lazy, sunny days are replaced with work and chilly weather.
