Greetings from Fethiye Turkey

We've been in Turkey for almost a month and the weather has been great.

Took this pic at lunch time today on the harbour at Fethiye.



We;ve not missed the van at all.

Safe travelling to all you snowbirde, anybody visiting Turkey this winter please get in touch. We fly home on the 28th April.

Best wishes.

Don

My Goodness Don, you do look well- even better than your avatar photo.

Enjoy your stay and I hope the sun continues to shine.

Greetings Don

We really did try to migrate there this winter but for various reasons it's South Africa again.

Soak up those rays and get stuck into that gardening

Christmas in the sun - that's the way to do it.

You make me envious with the photo Don. Enjoy! Can I ask a couple of questions?

Is the advantage that the exchange rate suggests apparent? Also is there increased social tension as a result of the political turmoil or not?
Are there lots of Syrian refugees?

Hi Dick,

Cost of living here is about half of the UK. We find it cheaper to eat out. Fuel is more expensive than the UK about 1.60 per litre.

There are no social tension outside Istanbul and even there it has been quiet for some time now.

This area is well away from the Syrian border and I've never seen any refugees here.

Greetings from Fethiye Turkey

What a lovely shot, brings back memories !

We are intrigued - did you fly this year, do you have a vehicle there, or travel by dolmus, or what?

Still unsure of our winter destination this year . . .

Kind regards to you both!

Helen and DAvid
