Luxury Tour of Turkey and Far East
Sep 17 @ 12:00 am – Oct 4 @ 11:45 pm
Luxury Tour of Turkey and Far East

Guided luxury tour of Turkey and the Far East with author, JHB Edmonds

As a HayHouse/Balboa writer/author and historian, I come from the same publishing house as authors Doreen Virtue, Dr Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra and Anita Moorjani. We adore the history and inescapable wonder of the antiquated expanse. This Anatolian and Mesopotamian region to the east is largely a relatively unexplored part Turkey’s fascinating past. Particularly to western tourists and us ex-pats alike.

Having traveled, marveling this landscape and visited almost all of the incredible sites and museums there, it would take at least two extra weeks to traverse this diverse expanse. Maybe next year would be an idea to experience the remaining districts. Special highlight would have to be 12,000 year old Gobekli Tepe, the oldest temple in the world, including high altitude Nemrut Dagi’s stone sculptured heads.

The only wee negative then I found on our very first trip was that the guides spoke only in Turkish. This tour however is entirely in English. The hotels and are second to none. The sumptuous array of cuisine is unique to these districts.

Our experienced and most friendly and helpful agent, Murat, and his team, speak English. They have gone all out in offering the finest luxurious service from the moment you arrive and leave Bodrum until you leave Istanbul.

Our first tour there was a grand success. This is our second tour and it will be even better.
If you love ancient history, captivating sights, travel, art, photography, networking with other creatives, we invite you, and look forward to meeting you to show-case in luxury, unforgettable, ‘True, real Turkey’, as the Turks often say!

Experience beautiful, ancient Far East Turkey. Contact Londina Travel (details pictured) This is only an intimate group party. Please book early as the first tour filled out in just over one week.

About badminton

Badminton has its origins in ancient civilisations in Europe and Asia.  The ancient game known as battledore (bat or paddle) and shuttlecock probably originated more than 2000 years ago.

In the 1600s battledore and shuttlecock was an upper class pastime in England and many European countries. Battledore and shuttlecock was simply two people hitting a shuttlecock backwards and forwards with a simple bat as many times as they could without allowing it to hit the ground.

Modern badminton can be traced to mid-19th century British India. It was created by British military officers stationed there.  A net was added to the traditional English game of  battledore and shuttlecock.

Initially, woollen balls were preferred by the upper classes in windy or wet conditions, but ultimately shuttlecocks took over the role of a “ball.” This game was taken by retired officers who got back to England. It was introduced as a game for the guests of the Duke of Beaufort at his stately home ‘Badminton’ in Gloucestershire, England where it became popular. Hence, the origin of the name “Badminton.”
