Ferrell’s Travel Blog banned in Turkey

Since sometime after our Ancient Crossroads Tour of Historical and Biblical Turkey (May and June, 2007), WordPress has been banned in Turkey.

Recently I checked with some friends in Istanbul. They tell me that this is the message they get when they try to access this page:

Access to this site has been suspended in accordance with decision no: 2007/195 of T.C. Fatih 2. Civil Court of First Instance.

A friend in Izmir (biblical Smyrna) says he is able to access this page. Izmir is our second stop. Perhaps we will be able to post here from some Turkish locations.

I have neither time nor interest to try to explain why this has happened. (It has nothing to do with this blog.)I can say that I don’t like censorship.

Because of this, I have setup a blog on Blogger. We will be posting there regarding the Steps of Paul and John Tour, at least while we are in Turkey. Please go to this URL:


If you have not read our posts from last May and June, please check the archives for those months to do so.
