Driving Southwest Turkey: A 5 Day, 4 Night Road Trip

It all got kick started with a wedding invite. We’d been talking through summer about maybe taking off for a few days at the beginning of October – some vague plans of hiring a car, taking in some archaeological sites and having a wander; a bit like our East Turkey road trip. An invite to […]

September In Fethiye – Summer Becomes Autumn

I don’t know why we keep thinking, “Ahh, this summer is relatively quiet, for us.” Summer’s in Fethiye are just not quiet – there are always friends around to play out with and September has been no different. October is going to be the same, too. But back to September and our news from Fethiye […]

Red Lentil Soup Recipe – A Turkish Favourite

We’re hitting that time of year; that time of year where the intense summer heat and haze suddenly holds up its hands, goes into retreat and gives way to cooler autumnal breezes and clear air. We can feel the change in the season and, after a long summer, many of us are basking in the […]

Babadağ Kafeterya – Perfect Snack Food Simplicity

Eating; most definitely one of our favourite pastimes. We cook Turkish recipes at home and we also love to eat out, too. Yeah, we love us a posh treat every now and then: a seafood feast at Girida, perhaps, or a steak at Çarıklı Et. But Fethiye is also blessed with oodles of places from […]

August News From Fethiye – Let’s Catch Up

August has been and gone so it’s that time again where we have a little look back at some random news from Fethiye. Just like last month, it’s another bumper edition. We’ve been busy! August has been busy! And we’re getting organised, these days; keeping a note of what we’ve been up to. A lot […]

Weekending At Full Moon Camp, Kabak – Life’s Good

Life’s little traditions. For my birthday, we always go to Antalya. It’s round about the same time as Runatolia so that tradition has happened by default. For Barry’s birthday, it’s an escape to Kabak. Only a dolmuş ride away but an amazing journey along the mountain road and a true feeling of ‘being away from […]

A Bumper July In Fethiye

Another month has passed us by so time for our usual little roundup of what’s been going on in Fethiye. Some random observations and a little bit of what we’ve been getting up to throughout this very hot July. Fethiye Harbour As usual, we’ll kick things off with the final section of Fethiye harbour. We’re […]

A Walk To Gümbet From Bodrum – And Some Windmills, Too

We’d eyed the crumbling windmills that watch over the harbour and the Aegean on previous stops in Bodrum and kept saying we’d make it up there one day. Although decaying, they stand stout – a neat row along the crest of the hill. The views must be fantastic, we thought. Over the other side, the […]

Top Turkish Food Favourites – What’s Yours?

What is the first meal you look forward to eating when arriving in Turkey? That question was just a random one that we asked on our Facebook Page. So many were the answers we received about your favourite Turkish food that we couldn’t just let it go. It became a mini project – tallying up […]

Summer Fruit Frozen Yoghurt – A Sweet Mix Of Seasonal And Local Ingredients

Something light and something cold. That’s been the main reply from each of us this summer when the other has asked, “What shall we eat today?” If you read our Fethiye news updates, you’ll know that we’ve made so many of our staple salads over summer – our salad of green lentils, a tangy chickpea […]
