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 […]
