Adrasan Beach – A Detour From Our D400 Road Trip

In our previous post, we took you on a road trip along the coastal D400 road from Antalya to Fethiye. For the driver, it's a road that continually gives - and all it asks in return is that you take it easy, enjoy the amazing views, take in the layer-upon-layer of history...and just take your time on … [Read more...]

Antalya To Fethiye By Car – A D400 Coastal Road Trip

Antalya: to drive or not to drive; that is the question. Well, we're big fans of public transport in Turkey and Fethiye to Antalya by bus  (and vice versa) is a perfectly simple (and cheap) exercise. But when we went to Antalya in March we decided to take a hire car with us so we could drive back … [Read more...]

Antalya Restaurants & Bars – A Few Places We Liked…

It's fair to say that it's taken us a few visits to really click with Antalya...but we don't like to be defeated - and, thanks to Barry running in Runatolia for the last couple of years, along with a quick overnight trip to watch our favourite Turkish band, Duman, at the Jolly Joker, it's meant … [Read more...]

Antalya Harbour & The Lift – Practical Beauty

Such a simple idea, yet so practical, so useful...and also so beautiful. But then aren't the simplest ideas supposed to be the best ideas? And, inevitably, this much needed practical solution is also going to be a great tourist attraction for Antalya. We're talking about the lift down to the old … [Read more...]

Have We Found Our Ideal Budget Antalya Hotel? Otel Twenty Could Be The One…

Budget's the name of the game when ever we go away anywhere - and recently, when we were in Antalya for Runatolia 2015, we again went on an online hunt for budget accommodation for our 3-night stay. We've learned the hard way with this, though, and past experience has taught us it's a bit of a … [Read more...]

Topçu Kebap – Antalya Usulü Piyaz In Antalya City Centre

There are many cities and regions in Turkey that are famous for particular recipes or foods - and Antalya is no exception to the case. On so many occasions on this blog, we've written about our love of köfte; yeah, you know we love our köfte - we've done various köfte recipes in the past such as … [Read more...]

Runatolia 2015 – The Colours Of Antalya

That's the overriding memory of both last year's Runtalya 2014 and this year's Runatolia (there's been a name change); just a mass of colour. Last year, I perched myself on the bridge over the start line to take photos and to try to spot Barry in the mass of runners. Of course, that was a futile … [Read more...]

Would You Run In Stilettos? The Runatolia Antalya Ladies Do!

Yes, this year, we again returned to Antalya for the 2015 Runatolia races so that Barry could take part in the half marathon. In previous years, the event has been called Runtalya and it's just getting more and more popular every year. Last year, we realised there was also a high-heel … [Read more...]

A Day At Lake Köyceğiz – Time To Chill

In a previous article, we wrote about another day trip from Fethiye; Sarıgerme Beach. Well, if you're anything like us and you start to feel a bit restless once you've finished admiring the beach scenery, you need somewhere to move on to. Sarıgerme is part of Ortaca and just a tad further along the … [Read more...]

Day Trip From Fethiye – Sarıgerme Beach

In January 2011, we took a few winter photos of Sarıgerme Beach and, since that date, until recently, we'd neither looked at that blog post nor been back to Sarıgerme. When my dad was here in October, that changed. It changed because he'd been earwigging on the plane over to here and had heard a guy … [Read more...]
