The Zeki Müren Arts Museum – Honouring A Turkish Superstar In Bodrum

Have you ever been to the Zeki Müren Arts Museum in the centre of Bodrum? If you have, then you’ll recognise the photos and some of the stories we’re about to relay here. If not, then let us tell you about this fantastically famous Turkish icon and why we decided to go and visit his […]

Dipping Our Toes Into Yalıkavak On Turkey’s Aegean

The Bodrum Peninsula is barely touched by the exploring feet of Barry and Julia. But 2016 was the year where we had the opportunity to do a bit of mooching around. Springtime is perfect travelling weather in western Turkey and staying at Ağan Pension in Bodrum centre for the Bodrum Global Run during that time, […]

Why Duru Balık Was Our Bodrum Foodie Highlight

Travel’s a personal thing and we all get our own highlights and memories from trips we go on. If you read this blog a lot, you’ll know our travel highlights usually centre around some sort of food we’ve eaten and delighted in: Istanbul and the kokoreç in Galata, Izmir with its enormous midye dolma and offally söğüş, […]

An Outing From Fethiye – Driving Across The Bodrum Peninsula

A piece of advice: Don’t do what we did. This trip is not good for doing in one day. We were only in Turgutreis because we were tagging along for a business trip our friends were attending. The Bodrum Peninsula is quite a trek from Fethiye and when we got back, we were shattered.  We’ve […]

A Short Break From Fethiye – Bodrum

If you’re staying in Fethiye for a while (either because you live here or you’re on a long holiday) and you fancy a change of scenery – not that you’d ever want to leave Fethiye of course, but you know what I mean – then we can highly recommend Bodrum. But there’s a difference. We […]
