How To Pronounce Fethiye

We get lots of questions about how to pronounce Fethiye. The name Fethiye causes lots of amusement for our Turkish friends who listen to Brits, and probably other nationalities too, trying to pronounce it. First of all, Fethiye is actually named after the pilot in the photo above. He is … [Read more...]

Eating & Drinking – Buffalo Steakhouse, Fethiye

A lovely day today. A very weekendy weekend really. Yesterday was Saturdayish and today was Sundayish. It's Barry's dad's birthday so they came round to our house for a Sunday barbecue. Chicken wings (kanat) and şiş kebabs. I made some ezme as well. It takes a bit of time to make so I only do it for … [Read more...]

A Stroll Along Fethiye Harbour

Today is the first time we've managed to go out for a walk along the harbour since getting back from Istanbul. We walked to the Fethiye Friday market so I went armed with my camera to update any developments along the way. So here are today's offerings. This top photo is of the lowest (when I … [Read more...]

Street Dogs in Fethiye

Awww. Meet Korky. She's a little street dog around our parts - we've got a pack of around ten at the moment - and we feed her sometimes. We've called her Korky because 'korkmak' is the Turkish verb for 'to be afraid.' This little thing is scared of her own shadow. She'll walk behind us occasionally … [Read more...]

8 Reasons To Go High Street Shopping In Fethiye

Until recently, shopping for clothes in Fethiye was very difficult for me. I gave up in the end and started to do rushed catch-up shopping whenever we were back in England. The reason it was difficult is because there wasn't a lot of choice in the shop department and also, I haven't got the figure … [Read more...]

Fethiye, Fethiye…wherefore art thou, Fethiye? One Of Life’s Ponders…

I've been pondering this one for a few years so maybe someone could help me out in my ponderings. And here is my ponder...how do you define boundaries in a great big body of water? Where is the exact point where one sea or ocean stops and another one starts? More specifically, where does the … [Read more...]

Trekking in Turkey – Kate Clow and The Lycian Way

We love this photo. I took it when we walked along the (old) first part of the Lycian Way last March. People who've done the paragliding from the top of Babadağ will have seen higher views than this but as you're never gonna catch me with a parachute strapped to me (or a pilot for that matter), this … [Read more...]

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 centre, … [Read more...]

Hotels in Fethiye & The Karagözler

When we did the trek around Fethiye peninsula on Thursday I have to say that for once, we were lost for words. Let me tell you why. Most of the hotels in Fethiye centre are along the Karagözler, over looking the bay and the marina. When we used to come here on holiday, we always stayed in this area … [Read more...]
