Things are a bit different for 2013. At this time of year, we usually do three separate blog posts which highlight our year in Turkish food, our year in travelling Turkey and, of course, not forgetting, our year in Fethiye. This year, all of those are being brought together in one post…well, we’ve got so much else to tell you, you see.
But we can’t ignore a little look back at 2013, so let’s get cracking:
January 2013 – Food & Travel
January was all Izmir and food. It was September 2012 when we were in Izmir, but, as always with us, we were still catching up on blog posts. Izmir likes to do things differently – it’s almost like a little republic – and they have their own words for some things. One of these is gevrek rather than simit. This is our post about the simit gevrek mystery; it caused much discussion on our Google + Turkish Food Community and the findings were added to that post.
Can’t say we watched any football and this post makes us laugh now – it feels like a looong time ago – but hey, we’ve all got to start our Fethiyespor-supporting careers somewhere. You live and learn. And if you go to a Fethiyespor match for the first time, you could well have a similar experience to this. This is our post about going to our first Fethiyespor match.
April 2013 – Travelling Turkey For The Day: Kaş
June 2013 – Rallying
Fethiyespor’s triumphant return from Konya where they won promotion to PTT 1. Lig for the first time in their history coincided with an organised rally in support of the Gezi Park protestors – both events to take place on Fethiye town square, Beşkaza Meydanı. Never will we forget that day. We’ve always been proud to call Fethiye home but that day took the biscuit. This blog post about that day tries to explain that.
July 2013 – We went travelling, remember?
August 2013 – A Night of Solitude in Kabak
September 2013 – Travelling Turkey For The Day: Patara
October 2013 – Fethiye Celebrates 90 Years Of The Turkish Republic
November 2013 – Travelling Turkey: Ankara And Istanbul
December 2013 – Fethiyespor Make History AgainThree historic events for Fethiyespor in 2013: 80th anniversary celebrations, promotion to Ptt 1. Lig – and then, in December, this…
There’s no denying it’s not been a happy time for Fethiyespor in PTT 1. Lig. However, drawing Fenerbahçe in the 4th round of the Ziraat Türkiye Kupası AND beating Fenerbahçe in the 4th round of the Ziraat Türkiye Kupası, well that was just amazing; dreamlike even. This is our post about the night Fethiyespor made history. And, more importantly (we think), it’s had a positive impact on their league games. Yes people, Fethiyespor won in Denizli last weekend and now we’re looking forward to this weekend…can they stay in PTT 1. Lig, we wonder? We’ll keep the faith.
