A General Fethiye Christmas Update

Well, I think the only adjective that befits how I feel this morning is 'jaded.' We both felt the same when we woke up but Barry's progressed to feeling 'not too bad.' Not moving today. We're listening to Aggers on Test Match Special as I write and neither of us intend on doing much … [Read more...]

Seasonal Food in Turkey – December Oranges

I wrote about tangerines a few days ago, I know, so it has to be the turn of the orange today. It really is citrus season here and I don't know if it's been a particularly good harvest this year but we've just got back from the Tuesday market in Fethiye and there are tangerines, lemons and oranges … [Read more...]

Christmas Preparations in Fethiye

I've come to the conclusion that it doesn't matter where you live in the world, Christmas is Christmas (to those who celebrate it anyway) and you still get all hectic doing food shopping and pressie shopping. At least it isn't a holiday here so we don't have to battle the hoards at the last minute … [Read more...]

A Day Trip To Kaş From Fethiye

Kaş is a lovely day out from Fethiye and there's a reason why we're writing about it today. We've not just pulled it from nowhere. Hopefully, we will be in Kaş on Wednesday because we will be sailing over to the Greek island of Meis (Kastellorizo) to renew our tourist visa. We say 'hopefully' … [Read more...]

Santa Claus Is Coming To…Fethiye

Santa Claus is coming to town??? No, he's already here in Fethiye and he's advertising the New Year lottery tickets with a prize of 30 Trilyon (not even going to start working out how much that is in Sterling but it seems a decent enough amount to me.). Seeing as St. Nicholas came from Turkey … [Read more...]

Tis the season to be…

Right. Determined to start getting festive as from today. I don't know if it's the lovely weather or what but I just know Christmas is gonna arrive all at once and we'll have done absolutely nothing about it cos those festive feelings are just not happening at the minute. So, here is my first … [Read more...]

How To Walk From Fethiye To Kayaköy

What better on a pleasant sunny day than to get that comfy footwear out and head off on one of the many walks around Fethiye. One of our favourite leg stretches - it's not too far and not too strenuous - is a walk from Fethiye to Kayaköy (aka the ghost village). It's a mixture of tarmac road and … [Read more...]

Fethiye Harbour Update

Okay. The new harbour between Fethiye and Çalış. We'd like to pretend we're all knowledgeable here and tell you what's going on and what all the buildings are going to be but we've really not got a clue and everyone we ask doesn't seem to know either. We're guessing from where the divisions are … [Read more...]

Woohoo! Done it!

Well, who would've thought it? For months we've been talking about starting a blog but that's all it's been - talking, talking, talking. Today, I've finally sat down and five minutes later, here I am actually typing. Anyone who knows me will know this is a great achievement on my part - not the best … [Read more...]
