Turkey Time!



For my birthday week I went to stay in the coastal town of Dalyan, Turkey. It was my first visit to the country and we sure had fun.

While we were there....


We stayed in a pomegranate field (the fruit are harvested in September, but there's always pomegranate juice on offer in the local cafes)

Stumbled upon some massive melons (that wasn't meant to sound rude)

 Saw statues of Ataturk, the founder of Turkey

Ate amazing fresh pitta bread

Tom got a Turkish shave...

We saw the ancient ruins of Caunos

Did some yoga on a boat..

...until the ice cream boat arrived!

 Spotted some cute turtles in the lake

I made friends with an alligator..

And managed to draw the Turkish flag with sparklers!

  2. Oh wow, that pitta looks incredible!

    Completely agree with the lists and such, I often think I've not done anything worthwhile in the day but when I make a list you actually see what you've done and you think 'actually I do get things done!' which perks you up a bit!

  4. Looks like you had a very happy time in Turkey! The pomegranates, turtles and, yes, the ice cream boat brought back some happy memories of my trip there last year too.
