The Drive To The Summit Of Babadağ – Scary Or Mesmerising? You Choose…

In our last Babadağ post, we wrote about the event that took us up there; the live music performance as part of the Fethiye Classical Music Festival in memory of cellist, Benyamin Sönmez. There can’t be many more perfect settings for live music than the top of the Fethiye area’s highest mountain; Mediterranean scenes below, […]

How Can We Not Love Kaş? A Few Photos

Turkey 2012 – The Online Year That Was…

Our final blog post of 2012 and we thought we’d keep it light and do something a bit different at the same time.

When The Sun Goes Down – Six Izmir Photos

Memories from our time in Izmir: there are a lot of them. Food more than played it’s part by way of the söğüş, Çeşme kumrusu and the stuffed mussels.

Istanbul Travel Photo: Taksim – Tünel Historic Tram

Yesterday evening and through the night, Fethiye had its first, long awaited, late summer rain.

We’re starting to wind down now after another hectic […]

Izmir Travel Photo: An Aegean Sunset – And A Question

The sunset photo – a bit of a cliché of the photography world, but aren’t they just irresistible? Wherever we are, we always like to try and catch a good sunset. The trouble is, we’re a bit spoilt in this part of Turkey. We can watch the increasingly famous Çalış Beach sunset whenever we like, a […]
