Mezgit Cafe, Fethiye – Seafood Street Food With A View

When Fethiye's new town square (Beşkaza Meydanı) and adjoining Uğur Mumcu Park were being built, that also meant a bit of a facelift for that stretch of the harbour, too.

June In Fethiye – A Gradual Emergence From Lockdown

June was the month where Turkey started the process of coming out of lockdown. A process that was never going to be easy, as other countries are also finding out.

Çalış Seafood Products Coop – The Fishermen’s Place

The Çalış Seafood Products Coop already has a more affectionate nickname for us; the Fishermen's Place. It rolls off the tongue easily and is fitting. We go for a walk on an almost daily basis.

A Decade In Turkey – And A Decade To Come

And that was that. The end of a decade. We're out of the teens and into the '20s. Coincidentally, it's also the end of a decade for our blog, too.
