Greece and Turkey squared up to each other over old disputes on Thursday during a state visit by Tayyip Erdogan to Athens, the first such by a Turkish head of state in 65 years and one which quickly exposed long-held historical grievances. Uneasy allies in NATO and at odds over a host of issues from ethnically split Cyprus to air space, diplomatic niceties were set aside after early remarks by Erdogan to Greek media that a treaty defining their borders may need reviewing. The 1923 Treaty of Lausanne defined the borders of modern-day Turkey, and by extension, Greece.

Are there ferries from west coast of Turkey to Greece?
I'm planning a trip to Georgia and Turkey (I'm from Poland). I've done this route a couple of times hitchhiking / by bus - and I have always "switched continens" by Bosphorus Bridge in Istanbul. This time I'm thinking of another way to do that, hence my question:Is there a ferry connection between the west coast of Turkey (Izmir for instance) and Greece (let's say Athens or Thessaloniki)? It's very difficult to find such things online (I can't find any valid ferry connection search engine - I'd appreciate any suggestions on that too).What could be the price of such ferry, if there is one?Edit: since I have finished my trip already, I can give some feedback for future travellers. I got an information that the cheaper way might be to go from Bodrum to Kos island - so I chose this way. The price of a quick ferry (it goes for approximately 20 minutes) is crazy 18€, the slower one is 17€. From there you can find prices on Blue Star Ferries website. Be very careful though - Kos is right now a huge immigration tunnel between the Middle East and Europe, so you should book a ferry at least a week earlier (I got to Kos and wanted to go to Pireaus immediately, but the soonest available ticket was for five days later - so I had to cheat a little bit)
How can roadside cafe quality be measured in Greece or Turkey?
When traveling by car it is always a big question how to determine the quality of roadside cafe in front of you. In Russia I've noticed some dependency between quality of food and wares, although prices may be the same. Glass-ware cafe's usually have more quality food than plastic-ware cafe's. Also in Russia there is one good sign that there is good cafe in front of you - lots of lorries. Truckers usually eat at cafes with good food.Is it generally true in Greece or Turkey?
