Kalkan – One Day We’ll Get To Know You Better

There are many advantages to living in this area of Turkey: countless beautiful places to take off to for a day out is one of those advantages - and another, perhaps slightly more obscure advantage is visiting friends at work.

How Can We Not Love Kaş? A Few Photos

We're taking you, the reader, all over the place at the moment, aren't we? For our last post, we were up in Eskişehir, enjoying a brunch of köfte and the Turkish white bean salad piyaz. For today's post...we're bringing you right back down to Turkey's Mediterranean coast for a little photo tour of … [Read more...]

A Circular Drive From Kaş To Kaş – When A Bit Of Curiosity Pays Off

Have you ever been somewhere countless times and you think you've seen all there is to see...but then one day, you just carry on along the road to see where it goes and a whole new perspective on the place reveals itself?

Two Kaş Beaches – Little Pebble Beach And Big Pebble Beach

Although Kaş sits right on the edge of Turkey's southern coastline, it's not a town associated with beaches. When we think of Kaş it's usually the bougainvillea-covered narrow streets of the old town that spring to mind and also, for us, the harbour where the boat to the Greek island of Meis leaves … [Read more...]

Exploring Kaş: Views From Ancient Antiphellos Theatre

Over past years, because of going backwards and forwards to the Greek island of Meis (Kastellorizo) to renew our visas, poor old Kaş had become no more of a stop off point for us. It was a few years since we'd spent any significant time there. The time came to hire a car for the day, hit the road … [Read more...]

Regular readers will know we have a bit of an obsession with the D400 road that runs along the length of the southern coast of Turkey (we have a post coming up soon dedicated to this lengthy stretch of tarmac) and anyone who has driven along it will know why. Mountains, Mediterranean, twists and … [Read more...]

Kalkan Autumn Sunset – A Photo

To be honest, there aren't many signs in Fethiye yet that autumn is upon us. Swimming pools and sun loungers are still full of summer sunbathers, the leaves on the trees are still a vibrant green and the nights still mild. But in our heads, it's autumn. I mentioned in a post last week that it was … [Read more...]

Day Out In Kalkan – Second Attempt

'So, dad, what do you think of Kalkan?' 'I think the taxi drivers must be rich and their cars never get out of second gear!' My dad used to be a taxi driver and his views of any place always seem to be formed around the taxi-driving experience. When he visited us last month, we'd hired a car and … [Read more...]

Antalya Tea Gardens: Thirst-Quenching Views of Antalya

All cities have their own personality and, for us, sitting in bars and cafes allows a little peak into what makes the people of a particular city tick. Whenever we visit any new city, this activity is just as important to us as rushing around, doing all the sightseeing we feel we ought to … [Read more...]

Antalya Coast Shipwreck: Photo Story

Shipwreck viewed from a distance on the coast of the centre of Antalya Last December, we posted about the heavy storms that hit the Turkish coast and displayed photographs of Çalış Beach and the damage the storms had caused. We had never seen Çalış so badly affected by storms and whenever the … [Read more...]
