Return To Paşa Kebap – It Had To Happen Sometime

You fancied a pide, you went to Paşa Kebap. You wanted lahmacun, you went to Paşa Kebap. You wanted a takeaway - or even delivery service - you went to Paşa Kebap. This was back in the late '90s. A time when eateries in Fethiye weren't nearly as abundant as they are now and what we had were just a … [Read more...]

Fethiye March News – Spring Has Sprung

It's that time again where we look back on what's happened during the previous month. Our Fethiye news for March is packed, as usual, and, for once, it's a tad late on purpose.

It’s The Fethiye Newsletter – February 2018

Yes, it's time for the (almost) monthly news from Fethiye - daily life and random goings on around town. A deluge of rain, construction along the harbour, new bars, more sporting misery - you know, the usual. But let's start off with the annual, rather than the monthly, usual... Fethi Bey … [Read more...]

Kırçiçeği Cafe, Fethiye – Happy Fish Sandwich Familiarity

This is the tale of how we came to be regulars at Kırçiçeği Cafe in Fethiye's Dispanser.

Autumn News From Fethiye – From Hectic To A Slower Pace

Yes, 'hectic,' is definitely the right word. If you were waiting for our October monthly news roundup, you'll know it was non-existent. That was the hectic part.

September In Fethiye – Summer Becomes Autumn

I don't know why we keep thinking, "Ahh, this summer is relatively quiet, for us."

But back to September and our news from Fethiye - … [Read more...]

Babadağ Kafeterya – Perfect Snack Food Simplicity

Eating; most definitely one of our favourite pastimes. We cook Turkish recipes at home and we also love to eat out, too. Yeah, we love us a posh treat every now and then: a seafood feast at Girida, perhaps, or a steak at Çarıklı Et. But Fethiye is also blessed with oodles of places from where you … [Read more...]

Weekending At Full Moon Camp, Kabak – Life’s Good

Life's little traditions. For my birthday, we always go to Antalya. It's round about the same time as Runatolia so that tradition has happened by default.
