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 […]

Charcoal Palace – Mangal Saray Restaurant, Çalış: Our Guilty Pleasure

You wouldn’t know it was there, if you didn’t know it was there. And we don’t just mean the restaurant we’re going to write about; Charcoal Palace – Mangal Saray in Çalış. We’re talking about its location, too. Bedesten Bazaar, the little square where Charcoal Palace resides, is not the type of place that announces […]

Fethiye Living – Early Summer News Update

Welcome to this month’s random news from daily life in Fethiye. All those little goings on that don’t merit their own blog post. Little happenings and repeat visits to places – they get mentions on social media but would go missed on the blog if it wasn’t for this section. And it’s been super busy. […]

Help Beach & Yacht Club, Fethiye – Love It!

What a great day we had! We need to tell you that there’s yet another new addition to the Fethiye beach scene and, as with all newcomers, we were excited and just had to go and check it out. But we had to bide our time. Mixed weather since their opening day didn’t really make for […]

Fethiye News – Summer And Ramazan

What’s this, then? Two Fethiye monthly news updates in two months? Aren’t we on a roll, eh? Well, there’s always so much to tell you, so, this last month, we’ve even kept some little notes then we don’t forget anything. It’s all go, you see. All the usual random stuff of what we’ve been up […]

News Of Life In Fethiye – It’s Been A While

Well, we’ve not had one of our random Fethiye updates for a while, have we? Certainly not monthly, anyway! That’s life, isn’t it? I started out 2017 with a mental note to self. A New Year’s Resolution. Make sure the monthly Fethiye news update goes out every month. And oh, look. Here we are, in […]

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 […]
