From Kusadasi we then drove onto Bodrum stopping off on the way to see even more ruins at Priene (300BC) and Miletus. We then went onto Altinkum Beach where we went for a quick dip in the water before continuing onto Bodrum.

When we stayed in Kusadasi we had been recommended a hostel in Bodrum which was run by a guy's cousin so we drove through the main centre of Bodrum and out again on the other side where the hostel was. We checked out the room - the hostel was dead - and then went to get the car which had to park and walk as we were getting sick of driving around. On the way back to the car we decided that we wanted to stay in Bodrum where all the action was and then drove around for an hour trying to find a place with a car park. We eventually found a backpackers but where then told that we could get a ticket if we parked out the front so we went around the corner to check out one more place and we hit the jackpot. The location was perfect and they had their own car park and pool.

We could now ditch the car and spend the rest of the time on foot so we headed to the dive shop to book 2 dives for the following day. We were told on our first dive we would be seeing a wreck which was only 3 weeks old so we weren't expecting much but it is still pretty cool to stand at the wheel when you are 30 metres underwater, but for the second dive we were down for 30mins before the dive master brought us all to the top and apologised as there was nothing to see. Turkey doesn't really have any proper fishing laws so all the fish were on dinner plates instead of our at the dive site.
