    Antalya

    April 9 in Turkey ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    Heute sind wir nach Antalya gefahren. Die Stadt hat uns mit einem riesigen Häusermeer empfangen. İn der Kaleiçi waren leider einige Sehenswürdigkeiten in Reparatur. Ein großer Teil von Stadtmauer und Historischem wird verdeckt von vielen kleinen Geschäften und Lokalen. İch glaube, solche Touristen Hochburgen sind nichts für uns. Danach waren die Düden Wasserfälle eine richtige Erholung.Read more

    Turkey - new teeth

    May 17, 2018 in Turkey ⋅ ⛅ 30 °C

    Visited Turkey to get new teeth..... 24 of them to be exact! Always wanted a beautiful set of teeth so I made the 10 day trip here to get it done. I stayed in Lara Beach was a beautiful place although I didn’t get to experience it much as I was in pain most of the time hahaha. Anyway 8 days after my first appointment I got my new teeth and I couldn’t be happier with the results!!Read more

    Roman Sites and Waterfalls

    February 23 in Turkey ⋅ ⛅ 9 °C

    Our tour leader helped put together a day tour of the area today as none of us had further plans for Antalya. I think we'd explored most of the old town and the old marina already the previous day. The weather this morning didn't look too promising, but we were hopeful that it would hold up.

    Ascendos was our first stop of the day. It's home to the best preserved Roman theatre in the world, and up until recently, still held local concerts. I can't remember the last time I saw complete arches still at the top behind the audience. Lucky for us, the last remnants of rain gave us the place to ourselves.

    Next a quick stop at 2000 year old aqueducts before lunch in the village, more gozleme, but the fresh orange juice was out of this world good! They grow their own oranges there so it's as fresh can fresh can be. We wanted 2 glasses of juice for lunch instead of lunch itself XD

    The ancient ruins of Perge was next, as we had quite a bit of time to roam the site. It was really informative to have our guide explain the history of the city and the parts that are seemingly common in the Roman plans for a city. The hippodrome, the gates, the agora and so on and so forth. Restoration work is ongoing and you can see new marble installed at the base of some columns. There was also a very cool mosaic.

    Waterfalls - I don't think the site was the one we were thinking of, but it was nice to get out and walk in nature, even with the manmade path. I headed a bit further than the rest of the group to find Lotus Waterfall, but it was a bit of a disappointment. Got back into the van just before the rains came down again.

    We really lucked out with the weather timing today. Dinner on our own again, roommate craved non Turkish food so we headed out to McDonald's where I tried the Kofta Burger, a local design and not one I'd repeat. I thought about having another balik ekmek (fish sandwich) but alas, some other time. Ended the night with a pomegranate cheesecake from Just So Candy. The pomegranate "pudding" bit was a bit weird, but overall it was tasty. So if I don't get cake on my birthday in a few days time, well, I've already had some ;)

    Beysehir to Antalya

    February 22 in Turkey ⋅ ☀️ 8 °C

    Off to Antalya today! But first, a stop at the wooden mosque (Esrefoglu). The wooden columns are made of cedar and there's a pit in the middle to collect snow in the winter to help dampen the columns in the summer. It's quite beautiful in there and we had the place to ourselves. Originally, our CEO's friend was the imam at the mosque, so we were looking forward to a call to prayer inside to hear he acoustics and learn more about the religion. Alas, he no longer works there though.

    Back on the road, we drove through the stunning Taurus Mountains, their tops still covered by snow. A very beautiful drive that I ended up staying awake for much of it. We stopped by a road side restaurant to try their specialty: bean salad (well, I didn't) but it sounds like it's an acquired taste that most of our group did not end up being fans of.

    After checking into our hotel, we had time to simply wander. That sounds like the main plan for the old city - get lost, it's ok. Roommate and I first sought out a frappuccino at Starbucks before making our way to the Mediterranean coast and back into the old town. Our guide took us on a brief orientation walk that was dampened by rain, and then we walked some more on our own.

    Dinner was seafood, we are on the coast after all! I had tasty shrimp shishkabob while others went with calamari. Headed out to a bar after with a few folks to take in a live Turkish band. Quite fun, we got in just before the rain and out before smokers and big partiers descended.

    Iskele restaurant in Antalya

    July 4, 2018 in Turkey ⋅ ☀️ 37 °C

    Walked through the old town and then found a stunning dinner spot at Harbour at Iskele restaurant
    Meze platter the best so far, and the Yoghurt lamb kebab was probably the best food Carmen has ever had - fried baguette slices, smothered in garlic yoghurt, with sliced roast lamb and a tomato /red pepper sauce on top.Read more

    Antalya Altstadthafen

    December 28, 2015 in Turkey ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Laut unserer diversen Reiseführer ist es so gut wie unmöglich, in der Altstadt anlegen zu können. Wir lassen es darauf ankommen und finden tatsächlich doch einen Super-Platz mitten drin. Die Crew ist schnell landfein und macht sich auf in die Stadt.
    Der Skipper wird gleich von einheimischen Fischern zum Tee eingeladen. Die sind zurzeit damit beschäftigt, ihre Netze zu flicken und Tee zu trinken. Für einen netten Plausch haben sie auch immer Zeit. Geduldig beantworten sie die Fragen des Skippers zu ihrer Arbeit und lassen ihn sogar mithelfen.Read more

    Antalya Altstadt

    December 28, 2015 in Turkey ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    Nach Rückkehr der Crew beschließen wir, den Altstadthafen wieder zu verlassen. Es ist uns doch etwas zu umtriebig mit all den Touristen hier.
    Schnell verabschieden wir uns wieder von unseren Nacharn am Steg, legen ab und nehmen Kurs auf die Setur Antalya Marina, eine knappe Stunde unter Motor.
