  • AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 22 – EARLY MORNING CALIS August 22, 2017
    Most of my photos of Calis are taken from the beach, looking out to sea, or down the promenade, so today’s photo is a different view of Calis, taken from a boat sailing past. It was a January day and we were on a morning boat trip for breakfast. Obviously it was a bit cold […]

  • AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 21 – FETHIYE MOSQUE August 21, 2017
    In the centre of Fethiye, right next to the dolmus station, stands one of the town’s many mosques. For years I walked past it almost everday and never stepped foot inside – until last year! It’s really beautiful inside, stunning stained glass windows, painted ceilings, bright colours against the white walls, a huge chandelier and […]

  • AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 20 – SEEING DOUBLE? August 20, 2017
    Mountains Babadağ and Mendos form a major part of the scenery around Fethiye, and has featured a few times in this photo series, but today’s photos show them as you’ve probably never seen them before! When I was living in Turkey the first time, I had a beautiful view of the mountains from my kitchen window, […]

  • AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 19 – A FETHIYE PENINSULAR SUNSET August 19, 2017
    Another sunset photo for today – but from a different viewpoint to the others! This was taken in February last year along the Fethiye peninsular. We had driven around and parked up on the cliff edge, climbed down a few rocks and sat waiting for the sun to go down. I have to say, I […]

  • AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 18 – Babadağ and Mendos August 18, 2017
    Right at the far end of Calis Beach, behind Şat restaurant, sits a bit of a hidden gem! I took the photo in 2014, but I assume you can still access the area now, I know there have been a few changes to that end of the beach. We walked around to the furthest point of […]

  • AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 17 – SNOWCAPPED MOUNTAINS August 17, 2017
    Although most people know Turkey for its almost-guaranteed sunshine for 6 months of the year, it’s not always hot…in winter it gets cold…VERY cold. Generally the coldest month in Fethiye is February, in my experience. I remember one winter it was around -2 degrees, with icy puddles outside. This photo was taken in January last […]

  • AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 16 – Lake Köyceğiz August 16, 2017
    Whilst on a trip to Dalyan, we got on a boat and were taken for a short ride down Lake Köyceğiz, to one of the mud bath & sulphuric hot spring centres along the bank. It was good fun, but a little odd, swimming chest deep in mud and rubbing it all over yourself, then […]

  • AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 15 – WONKY HOUSES August 15, 2017
    These wonky houses were well loved in Fethiye, I think, and quite humorous! Sadly, they were knocked down a few years ago, which is understandable due to safety reasons, but I did hold a little soft spot for them, it always made me laugh seeing them while walking through the town square or while on […]

  • AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 14 – CALIS SUNSET August 14, 2017
    You just can’t beat a Calis Beach sunset, especially during winter when the sun goes down right on the horizon rather than behind the mountains. The clouds make it even more dramatic, with the sky fading from yellow, to orange, then to red. The sun glowing, lighting up the horizon, with the silhouette of red […]

  • AUGUST PHOTO SERIES – DAY 13 – Gümbet August 13, 2017
    A few years ago we went for a mini-break to Gümbet in Bodrum. Bodrum I really liked, but Gümbet honestly I found awful. It just seemed dirty, the beach was tiny and cramped full of sunbeds, bar street was full of booming music with men dancing on bars and bars only letting women in… it was just […]
