January 2016 – What Went On In Fethiye

2016 and it’s time for our (roughly) monthly round up of goings on that we’ve noticed around Fethiye. Not official news or anything like that – just our little random updates and musings. In this seemingly topsy turvy crazy world we all seem to be living in at the moment, you’ll be pleased to know that […]

Fethiye’s Winter Of 2015 – We’re A Bit Wet

This is just a blog post about lazy days, really. Not lazy days doing nothing – we’re always busy doing something; writing blog posts, taking photos, editing photos, adding various bits of Turkey news to our social media accounts, replying to comments and emails. Yes, we spend a lot of time looking at laptops and […]

4 Photographs Of Fethiye In January

Whichever day of the week it may be, it’s impossible these days to walk along Fethiye harbour without seeing a long row of fishing rods wedged into the concrete edging. This January photo was taken recently as we walked past Boğaziçi Restaurant towards home. One of the fishermen was packing up for the day and had […]

Fethiye Weather – Surviving Wet Winter Days

Yes, I know we keep harping on about how much we love winter in Fethiye. Deserted beaches, crisp, clear mountain scenery, afternoon strolls, trekking…but sometimes, it rains…for days. In mid December, we were faced with Baltic temperatures in Fethiye and then a week later, a pretty hefty storm rolled over Fethiye and Çalış leaving us with […]

Fethiye in Winter – Ölüdeniz

Why go somewhere on a winter’s day when everything’s closed and there’s nobody around? Precisely for that reason. You may have guessed by now that we absolutely love the winter months in Fethiye. We’ve been to take photographs in Göcek and Gemiler Bay and today, it’s the turn of Ölüdeniz. The friends who came out […]

The (soon to be) Fethiye Harbour Bridge

We’ve been wanting to do another update on the goings on along the new Fethiye harbour for a while but to be honest, it’s at that funny stage that new buildings go through. That stage where the building seems to pop up from nowhere in a matter of days and then it looks the same […]

What To Do In Fethiye In Winter…Head To The Mountains

I’ve mentioned a couple of times in the past that last winter was really cold and that meant extra snow in the mountains. It was fabulous. The snow’s arrived this year – finally – but I’m guessing not as much as last year. The road in the photograph is only a 30-minute drive from Fethiye […]

January Weather in Fethiye – Better Than Last Year!

So far, the weather in Fethiye has been much better this year than it was last winter. Last year was very wet and cold – lots of snow on the mountains to play in though – but this year has been much more normal. On Friday, I posted the lovely sunny photos of when we […]

Seasonal Food in Turkey – Ceviz (Walnuts)

Strictly speaking, ceviz (walnuts) are not seasonal food in Turkey because you can buy them throughout the year but there are more of them about at this time of year. Maybe they’re in season in Turkey at the moment and then they come from abroad at other times of the year? We’re not sure. I […]

Rain!! In Turkey but not South Africa…

Ohhh, we’re gonna get cabin fever if this relentless rain carries on. The weather in Fethiye has turned to its usual winteriness (not a word, I know) now. When it rains, we either get fantastic thunder storms and high winds or we get like it is today; very still, an all over greyness, misty and […]
