Turkey

TURKEY 2014

So as you might know last week I flew off to Turkey with my family. I'd been once before and fell in love with it. We booked the holiday super last minute and got a an amazing deal. We did so much fun stuff, and went places I'd never seen before.


We stayed in a little town called Sarigerme, which is pretty central to everywhere we wanted to go, so that was perfect.

We flew really late and spent the first day chilling out and seeing what there was to do at our resort, but by day two we were ready to explore Sarigerme. We headed into the town for some shopping and ended up booking an excursion to Dalyan to see the turtles, the tombs and the mud baths! And that's exactly what we spent the third day doing. Let me just say if you are ever on holiday near a place that has natural mud baths, do it! Its really gross and doesn't smell all that fresh either but believe me its an experience!

On the third night there was a foam party in the town so me and my sister decided to go up and have a few drinks. We definitely did have a few drinks, so we had to spend all of day 4 relaxing by the pool. We spent all of day 5 relaxing around to resort too.

We decided that our 6th day should be a beach day as we weren't all that brown and we wanted to come back with a bit of a tan.

On day 7 it was time to pack up and head off on our second and final excursion. This time we decided to go Fethiye Market and the Blue Lagoon. The market was huge and we really couldn't be bothered to do it all as it was way too hot so we headed back to the coach to be taken to our second stop.

We were taken to an abandoned Greek town where we had lunch, and a Camel ride. That's one more thing ticked off the bucket list! Our final stop was at a beautiful beach called Blue Lagoon where we did a bit of sunbathing and hired a pedalo. Then it was back to the Hotel to wait for our ride to the airport and our plane home.

** Edit 26.06.2020 - looking back at this post I would not recommend taking animal rides in holiday destinations as I don't believe they are always well looked after **

It's not a holiday unless you eat ice cream around the pool is it?

We had such an amazing week away and I literally can't to come back and explore more of this beautiful country!

Have you been to Turkey before?
