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 […]

AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 8 – RAINBOW

This photo isn’t the best quality as it was taken on my old iPod around 5 years ago,  so it doesn’t really do it justice. This was the view from the first apartment we lived in together for 2.5 years. We lived in the middle of fields and green hills, even though it was only […]

AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 5 – KALKAN

Village adventure – Day 2

When I woke up the morning after we arrived in the village and looked out of the window, I won’t lie, I definitely thought ‘what on earth am I doing here?’ – it was the first time I’d seen the place in daylight (at least since I’d visited 3 years ago..) and to someone not […]
