Wowed By Turkey!
I have spent the last week and a half in Turkey, and what a holiday it was! Turkey really did surpassed all my expectations. We started off with a night in Dalaman before heading for a week in Klakan. We had a private villa for the 6 of us located above the town centre, the views from which were fantastic. The walk back up, not so great!!!

We visited the nearby town of Fethiye for the market, Patara for the ruins and took a boat trip up the coast to see some under water ruins. We ate out at many of the local restaurants and without exception every meal was fantastic. Not only were the choices endless but the food was so tasty and very reasonable. A meal for 6 including wine was averaging at £100 for all.

We finished off the stay with a 3 night stop in Istanbul, I am now in love with Istanbul! The city is fantastic, very quirky and interesting. Many museums and historical sights coupled with the most amazing cafes/bars/restaurants, a really cosmopolitan city. We stayed at the amazing Mama Shelter:
Istanbul is of course a popular cruise stop so next week I will give you full details on what I think you should do when in Istanbul.
