Happy new year, everyone! 2013 has arrived and we’ve hit the ground running as far as the blog and our online presence is concerned. While none of us can predict the future, we’re hoping 2013 is going to be an exciting year for us and this month, in particular, is a busy one.
We’ve got big – and hopefully better – changes planned for the layout of the blog and we’re currently working like mad on those. All will be revealed over the next few weeks when we’re good to go. But enough of that for now. What else is in store for 2013?
Fethiye – It’s growing
If you read this blog a lot, you’ll know we focus on three main areas: Fethiye (well, we live here), Turkish food & recipes and travel. That will continue throughout 2013 and, as far as Fethiye is concerned, its council boundaries are set to expand so we’ll have an even bigger area to write about – not that there’s ever any shortage of goings on and things to see in this little corner of Southwest Turkey!
Turkish Food & Recipes – Introducing A New Series
Throughout 2012, we ran a series every Friday called the Fethiye Photo. This year, for 2013, we’re going to change that and it’s going to be a focus on food. The temptation was to call it Fethiye Food Photo Friday (we love a bit of alliteration) but well, that just seemed a bit too much. So, starting this Friday and continuing throughout 2013, we’ll have a photo of a meal, street food snack, maybe even something we’ve made, and we’ll tell you the tale behind it, too. Think of it as a Turkish Food Photo Friday. By the way, if you like the look of the kuşbaşılı pide in the photo, you can get this in Çalış from Akdeniz Restaurant.
The upside of a community is that many minds are better than one and we’ve already been introduced to some kebabs from the Black Sea region and braised pickles amongst other Turkish meals we didn’t even know existed.
Travelling Turkey – In slow fashion
In the meantime, we started doing catch up posts towards the end of summer 2012 where we went into a bit more detail about places we’ve been to already and added new photos. We’ll be continuing with those and, of course, we’re still not finished with the lovely Izmir from September. And shhhhhh, we’ve not mentioned Istanbul…yet…
Social Media – Who knows?
So, as we stride out into the great unknown that will be 2013, vague plans in tow, we hope you’ll follow us as we muddle through our life in Turkey. It’s always an adventure.
