June In Fethiye – A Gradual Emergence From Lockdown

June was the month where Turkey started the process of coming out of lockdown. A process that was never going to be easy, as other countries are also finding out. It’s going to be a long bumpy road. But we’ve all just got to keep pressing on, using our common sense. At least, that’s what …

Çalış Seafood Products Coop – The Fishermen’s Place

The Çalış Seafood Products Coop already has a more affectionate nickname for us; the Fishermen’s Place. It rolls off the tongue easily and is fitting. We go for a walk on an almost daily basis.

Sarge’s Place, Çalış – Pub Grub & A Cosy Atmosphere

It’s been a relatively short career, so far, our time at Sarge’s Place in Çalış. It’s not the sort of place we’d go to usually – well, we don’t live in that area, and, if we are around there, it’s usually to go Sunday food shopping at the market, followed by a hello and a …
