This will be our first time in Turkey and I would love for someone to look over our itinerary & tell us how it looks! Anything missing? Need more things on certain days (or less)? Should we rearrange anything? I feel that some days are lacking......

We are adventurous travelers who rarely feel jet-lag (usually due to our weird working hrs!) & usually fill each day to the brim! :) We don't usually "relax" on our European trips due to wanting to experience as much as possible (remaining sane!) & tend to have a few days off work once we get home to recover! We are not strict "by the itinerary" travelers but do like to have a basic breakdown so we can plan accordingly & see the big things!
