Soon I'm heading from Albania to Turkey to Georgia.
The obvious way is to go through Thessaloniki which is a great city and I'd like to go back.
But I'm considering an alternative plan of going via Athens instead. Now I don't like backtracking and I like being in new places and I like places with not many tourists and I like ferries. So I'm seeking a ferry option specifically.
Time is only a minor factor but budget is my biggest factor, both because I'm conserving my money but also because I enjoy the extra adventures travelling cheap always seems to provide.
So I really don't care where in Turkey I arrive. But Athens is a goal which probably means Piraeus as departure point. Departure date is early to mid October 2011 - soon!
So from Athens/Piraeus/vicinity to anywhere in Turkey by sea, what ferry options are the best bargains?
