The scenic route to Iztuzu Beach…

Iztuzu Beach, an arc shaped 5km stretch of sand on the Mediterranean coast, is accessible from Dalyan in two ways – either by boat, which takes you to one end of the beach, or by car/bus which takes you to the opposite end. For me, as nice as the river boat is, it’s even more […]

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..

  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 […]

The 5* Titanic Hotel, Lara Beach…

Up until fairly recently I had never stayed in an all inclusive hotel anywhere, so when we had to go to Antalya for the day to apply for Berkay’s visa in 2016, we decided to treat ourselves and book a night in the stunning Titanic Hotel in Lara Beach. I remember watching the travel channel […]

AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 17 – SNOWCAPPED MOUNTAINS

Although most people know Turkey for its almost-guaranteed sunshine for 6 months of the year, it’s not always hot…in winter it gets cold…VERY cold. Generally the coldest month in Fethiye is February, in my experience. I remember one winter it was around -2 degrees, with icy puddles outside. This photo was taken in January last […]

Oludeniz in the winter sun…

Everyone knows that Turkey in summer is beautiful, but not everyone has the experience of visiting in the winter months and appreciating it’s beauty in a slightly different way! It’s hard to believe that it was almost a year ago that Berkay & I were reunited after his army service. At the end of January […]

A quiet afternoon in Calis..

Berkay works nights in summer so he sleeps most of the day and often wakes up mid-afternoon and goes for a stroll around Calis – he likes to send me lots of photos to make me jealous, which they certainly do! The clear sky, the blue sea and the beautiful long promenade full of shops, bars and restaurants […]

Reminiscing – Calis 2010

I’ve been looking back at old photos recently and reminiscing on ‘the good old days’. Although my first visit to Calis was only in 2010,  a lot has changed in the past 5 years, and yet still so much stays the same. I was on holiday in Calis staying in a hotel Berkay worked in, […]

Sarigerme beach..

A couple of weeks ago we hired a car again (for the 6th time this summer!) and just drove. We didn’t really have a plan, we considered going to Dalyan but when we saw the signpost for Sarigerme, we decided to go there instead. I’d heard of Sarigerme before but never actually been, I knew […]

Fethiye & Çaliş sunsets..

Çaliş beach is known for it’s amazing sunsets. I’m willing to bet that anyone who has ever visited Çaliş will have at least one sunset photo stored in their camera amongst their holiday snaps! The view of the sunsets in Çaliş are amazing, I’ve posted photos of them a few times in the past, but now that autumn […]
