Fethiye Ördek Adası – Taking Pleasure From The Simple Things In Life

I’ll hold my hands up; I’ve developed a little obsession with our local duck population in Fethiye. Even Barry lets out a little, “Aww,” when we walk past them, so hopefully, these little animals are bringing as much joy to the other passersby as they are to us. (Ahh, the simple things in life, eh?) …

Fethiye Famous Heads – Osman Bey

Last week, we finally kick-started our new series about the ‘Fethiye heads’ with a bit of information about Mehmet Akif Ersoy. Penning the national anthem of the new Republic of Turkey in the early 1920s naturally gave him his prominent position in modern Turkish history. He was there right at the beginning of Turkey as …
