Student Photo Gallery: Turkey

From Ottoman Sultans to Roman Caesars to Christian Apostles, Turkey has a rich history as an important crossroads between Europe and Asia. And today with an incredibly hospitable and extroverted population, Turkey is welcoming visitors from around the world. We asked students (and shipkids) aboard the Summer 2013 voyage to submit their favorite images (or drawings!) from their time in Turkey and were blown away by how rich and varied their experiences were.
