April In Fethiye – In May. Our Monthly Update

Yes, here we are, on May Day, writing our Fethiye update for the previous month of April. Well, at least it means we can cover the whole month because things have been pretty action packed around these parts right up until yesterday. So, let's get started with what we were up to last month. The … [Read more...]

What’s Going On In Fethiye This Month? Let’s See…

Something a bit different for 2014 for the blog. There are lots of goings on in Fethiye - and in our life - that either never make it into a post or we have to squash them in somewhere at the expense of another post. So we've decided, once a month...or so...(in our usual haphazard way) we'll put a … [Read more...]

Telmessos Theatre In Fethiye – Where We’re At In December 2013

It's that time of year again where we all start to round things off, look back and reflect before looking forward to what's ahead the following year. And it's the same for this blog.

Fethiye Telmessos Theatre Restoration: Scaling The Perimeter

It's got to be said that we feel very privileged to be able to watch the developments around the excavation and restoration of an ancient theatre so close to where we live. Of course, we're alluding to Fethiye's Telmessos theatre. Back in September of this year, the road passing the site was … [Read more...]

Fethiye’s Ancient Telmessos Theatre Suddenly Got A Whole Lot Bigger!

After a busy time in the kitchen last week with our Turkish Food & Recipes Feature Week, it's time to get back to some sort of routine, for a short while at least. While we were cooking, we also found time to wander around Fethiye with camera - and we've always got a camera of some description … [Read more...]

A Perfect Evening At Fethiye Theatre

I think we're starting to tempt fate in writing this blog. Last month, we did a post about planned restoration work for Fethiye's ancient Telmessos Theatre and I mentioned how good it would be for Fethiye if the site was used for more for live performances. Well, how fantastic that last night, … [Read more...]

A Glimmer of Hope for Fethiye’s Ancient Theatre

We came across an interesting article the other day which gave us a little glimmer of hope for some of Fethiye's crumbling ruins. The article focused on the Dalyan rock tombs and said that nanotechnology is going to be used to restore and protect the rock tombs from further erosion; the first time … [Read more...]
