Fethiye Archaeological Museum – Make Time To Visit

If you didn’t already know our town of Fethiye has a museum, you could go for years visiting the area and never come across the unassuming premises.

Karataş Beach, Fethiye – Keeping It Simple

Nothing stays still for long in the Fethiye area. That includes Karataş Beach. At the moment, the coastline of Çiftlik and beyond, further west from Çalış Beach, is seeing much development by way of the construction of huge hotel complexes. We’re not fans of those, preferring instead the slower, more low key, more compact way …

Büyük Boncuklu Bay, Fethiye Peninsula

Once upon a time, there was a bay in Fethiye. It was a beautiful bay; perfect shape when viewed from on high as you walked around the Fethiye peninsula. Rocky promontory, encroaching pine forest, crystal clear water, horseshoe bay. Every time we looked down on Büyük Boncuklu Bay, it just looked so inviting. Büyük Boncuklu, …

A Hike From Ovacık To Faralya Along The Lycian Way

Hiking from Ovacık to Faralya along the Lycian Way long distance footpath. It was a weekend of doing something new. And doing activities we’d been meaning to repeat for some time but never got around to. The ‘something new,’ was eating lunch at Izela in the village of Kayaköy.

A Short Walk From Kayaköy To Cold Water Bay – It’s Worth Your Effort

We’ve been running a lot over winter – strange how it pushes other loves in your life into the background without you noticing. We were training for the Istanbul 10k in November and then the Runatolia event at the beginning of March in Antalya. Before we knew it, winter was done with and we hadn’t …

Weekending At Full Moon Camp, Kabak – Life’s Good

Life’s little traditions. For my birthday, we always go to Antalya. It’s round about the same time as Runatolia so that tradition has happened by default. For Barry’s birthday, it’s an escape to Kabak. Only a dolmuş ride away but an amazing journey along the mountain road and a true feeling of ‘being away from …
