Assos also known as Behramkale, is a town where Aristotle lived for a period of time. This place that was once a thriving civilisation, now lies in ruins.
I can’t remember the real reason why my friends and I decided to make this stop before heading to Istanbul. It could be because this was a half day trip and it fitted nicely in our itinerary.
What remains of Assos is surprisingly little. There are two main attractions. The Athena temple and the port.

No those ain’t her shoes. She’ll rather die than to ever wear them.
I had my ice-cream break too. My two must haves when I got travelling. Ice-cream and corn. They make me very very happy. Really.
C’est La Vie.

But it’s definitely driving me nuts. My 3rd hard disk is only 2 weeks old… T.h.e… a.g.o..n…y……..
