Going, going, gone.. A Calis Beach sunset.

Β  Anyone who has been following my blog for a while will know that my favourite thing to do in Turkey is watch a sunset, and there is no better place to do that than in Calis! There’s just something special about sitting on the beach watching the sun slowly shrink and disappear, at the […]

Dalyan – Dinner with a view, nightlife and something for everyone.

Β  Aside from the beach, neither Berkay or I had visited Dalyan before, so when we had the chance to spend the night there we tried to make the most of it! After coming back from the beach on the boat, I really fancied fish for dinner. Overwhelmed by the amount of restaurants to chose […]

Dalyan – A river boat, Lycian Tombs and Iztuzu Beach.

Our little mini-adventure on the way back to Calis from Denizli took us from Akyaka to Dalyan. We’d been there on a day trip once before as part of an organised coach tour but didn’t see any of the main town, so this time we decided to stay for the night and see a bit […]

Akyaka – Beautiful scenery, authentic houses & crystal clear sea..

Β  Whenever we visit Turkey we end up doing the same things and going to the same places, so this year we fancied a bit of a change and did a few days exploring. After spending a day in Denizli and the village, we left in the early afternoon and drove a couple of hours […]

An afternoon in Denizli…

Berkay’s family are from Denizli, most live in a small village but his uncle, aunt & their kids live in the city centre, so we’ve visited a few times over the past few years. Three weeks ago we visited again, just for the day. Usually whenever we go to Turkey we have at least one […]

Two weeks in Turkey …

This time 3 weeks ago we had just landed in Dalaman, with our whole 14 days holiday still ahead of us! This time last week, we were waiting back at Dalaman for our flight back home. I’ve definitely had post-holiday blues this week, because we had the best time! We visited a lot of different […]
