Looking out over Ölüdeniz…

  Back in June we made the most of having the rental car by driving around and visiting various places. One of them being the look out point at the start of the Lycian Way, over looking Ölüdeniz. We drove a little way up the mountain road, parked up and walked for about 5 minutes to […]

Panoramic views of Fethiye

If you want beautiful, panoramic views of Fethiye, a good place to head to is ‘Aşıklar Tepesi’ – roughly translated to ‘hill of lovers’. You can reach it by car, up a very steep winding hill road, or via foot, up 163 steps from a backstreet below. Whenever we rent a car, we usually drive […]

Flying with Turkish Airlines again!

I flew with Turkish Airlines for the first time last year, and wrote a post about it on here (click HERE to read). We flew with them again last month and it was a little different, so I thought I’d do an updated post. Going out, we flew from Gatwick to Dalaman via Sabiha Gökçen airport […]

Ölüdeniz from above!

Two weeks ago we decided to go for a long walk up part of the mountain overlooking Ölüdeniz . The path we took forms part of the ‘Lycian Way’ – a 540km long walking trail between Ölüdeniz and Antalya. We got on the dolmus near the otogar in Fethiye, and what an experience that was. I’d never […]

Calis from the hillside!

Two days ago we went for a long walk up to the furthest point of Calış beach and back again. We walked from our house all the way to Koca Çalış and up a hill at the far end of the beach – the views were lovely and I saw Calış/Fethiye from a whole new angle! The […]
