Sultan’s Aqua City, Çalış – A Big Splash

Sultan’s Aqua City in Çalış is what we’re all about for today’s post. Because, you see, we’re at that time of year again. The trickle begins around January and then picks up pace during the spring. I’m talking about those messages you get from friends when you live in another country; especially in a town […]

Begonya Ev Yemekleri, Çalış – Turkish Kitchen Meets English Tearoom

So, what’s going on with the title of this post, then? Just trying to sum up a description of our latest local eatery article in a few words, that’s all. Hopefully, as we tell you more about our recent experience at Begonya Ev Yemekleri in Çalış, and you scroll through the photos, all will start […]

Sarge’s Place, Çalış – Pub Grub & A Cosy Atmosphere

It’s been a relatively short career, so far, our time at Sarge’s Place in Çalış. It’s not the sort of place we’d go to usually – well, we don’t live in that area, and, if we are around there, it’s usually to go Sunday food shopping at the market, followed by a hello and a […]

Çarıklı Et Restaurant, Fethiye – Everything But The Moo…And The Baa

There are oodles of places to eat around Fethiye, serving all manner of international and Turkish dishes, whether they be meat, seafood or vegetable. Some restaurants serve a happy mix of everything. And we need that, of course. […]

Autumn News From Fethiye

Hmm, well we have to go the ‘autumn’ route with our Fethiye news title, don’t we? Monthly news seems to have gone by the by of late – and yes, we’re fully aware of that. And it’s only personal news, after all. Things we notice going on around town and bits and bobs of what […]

The 17th International Ölüdeniz Air Games – Fantastic!

Each year, in October, the Fethiye events calendar features the International Ölüdeniz Air Games. We always try to get over there for at least one of the days just to soak up a bit of the atmosphere, take a few photos and enjoy the last throes of the summer season on the beach. If the […]

The Tale Of Kayaköy Roots Music Festival 2016

It was definitely ambitious; a 2-day music festival in Kayaköy with performances from six well known Turkish bands and musicians. Some of them internationally famous. A festival where you could buy tickets for just one day or for both days – and there was camping, too. On 13th and 14th September, the Kayaköy Roots Music Festival […]

August Fethiye News – Yachts, Signs & Bayram

And so, yet another month of 2016 has passed, and, once again, it’s been a flyer. We’ve crammed in loads to our month of August in Fethiye so it’s time to add the last few weeks to our list of Fethiye news updates. Of course, the end of August means that September is upon us – and […]

Ölüdeniz Water World Aquapark – A Fun-Packed Day For All

Aqua parks: what’s your take on them? We’ve just been reading some reviews of Ölüdeniz Water World Aquapark. One person wrote, “Who doesn’t love an aqua park?” Errm, is it just me, then, who looks up at water slides and gets an uneasy queasy feeling? There’s a bit of longing there, too, of course. I […]

Fethiye Life – Two Month Catch Up

Wow, well, we think it’s high time we had a little update about life in Fethiye, don’t you? We’re supposed to do monthly news updates but, as usual, at some point during the year, time runs away with us and all of a sudden, two months have passed us by. And, as you are no […]
