Of course, the centuries-rich history is an attraction for the more-cultured wealthy traveller, but Turkey also has a number of high-end restaurants and a “really wonderful nightlife,” said Fischer-Rosenthal. In Bodrum (pictured above), the rich often stay in a Gulet, a Turkish boat that has between three and 12 rooms. From there, the boat, which comes with a crew, will sail around the coastline or into nearby Greece.

The cultural memory was right, and our scientific surveys were wrong But one day Tanovo’s rival, chief of the volcano Nabukelevu, pushed his mountain up and blocked Tanovo’s view of the sunset. Enraged at this, and robbed of the pacifying effects of his daily meditation, Tanovo wove giant coconut-fibre baskets and began to remove earth from the mountain. His rival, however, caught Tanovo and chased him away. When geologist Patrick Nunn first heard this myth, it made sense that it described the volcanic eruption of Nabukelevu, with the associated ash falls on other islands in the Kadavu group.
