TWT in 2017: A New Trip Begins

A little later than usual we begin our look forward to the year ahead by casting our minds back, scratching our heads and wondering just what the hell did we do with our time in the year past. We also discuss leaving Turkey and our latest travels in Southeast Asia (again).
