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 […]

A Brief glimpse of Istanbul..Aqua Florya Alışveriş Merkezi

  I have wanted to visit Istanbul for ages, but never had the time or the opportunity really – we are creatures of habit and love going back to Calis and Fethiye. Although I would be happy to go elsewhere for a change, Berkay just is a real Fethiye boy at heart. I’m hoping for […]

AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 30 – FETHIYE HARBOUR

I think Fethiye is overlooked by a lot of tourists, with some people not straying further than the Tuesday market, but it has so much more to offer. The harbour area is so pretty, especially early in the morning when it’s quiet, the only people around are those getting the boats ready for a day […]

AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 29 – RED SKY AT NIGHT…

Today’s photo is another Calis Beach sunset, but a slightly different one, with a sky full of clouds creating a beautiful patterned, glowing sky! Cloudy sunsets are the best, they look more intense! Love the reflection on the sea too. I still maintain that Calis Beach is the best place to watch the sun go […]

AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 27 – Asiklar Tepesi

Asiklar Tepesi, roughly translated to ‘hill of lovers’ offers beautiful panoramic views of Fethiye.  Accessible by a really, really steep hill by car, or via 163 steps (I counted!) from a backstreet below, the view at the top is definitely worth it. There are little seating areas overlapping the edge of the hillside, built into […]

AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 26 – The Turquoise Coast

Of all the beautiful things about Turkey, the sea has to be one of them! It’s so relaxing sitting on a beach, listening to the waves and looking out to the horizon. Of course it has that lovely Turqouise blue colour too. This photo was taken in Oludeniz in April 2011, a few days after […]

AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 24 – BABADAG MOUNTAIN

Driving or walking along the Fethiye peninsular provides you with plenty of opportunities for panoramic views of the area. Some look out points even have the metal binoculars which you can put a lira in and get a better view of everything. I took this photo while we were parked up somewhere along the peninsular, […]
