    Season closing

    November 8, 2020 in Turkey ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    You can tell that the season is over here in Fethiye. Some bars, shops and restaurants are already closed, some start getting everything ready for the winter. The vast majority of the boats don't go out anymore either. However, we were lucky enough to find the last one operating. And today, it went out for the last time this season.
    Again, we enjoyed being on a boat and seeing the seaside of Turkey. We passed many islands (probably 12 as that was the name of the tour), stopped at 4 of them for a swim and had some yummy fish for lunch. It's getting colder, the water as well, so we were the only ones (I think) who went swimming at all 4 stops. Many people didn't swim at all.
    For us, it was probably the last boattrip on our biketour and a relaxing day for our legs as well.

    Hangover cycling

    November 6, 2020 in Turkey ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    After the wine party last night, we had a late start. We slept in a little, had breakfast and coffee - and still felt tired when we started to paddle. Luckily, the wind was on our side for most of the time today and we descended back to sea level. The views were stunning, so we were distracted and didn't think too much about our tiredness.
    We arrived in Fethiye and decided to check into a hotel. The town is nice and there's some things to explore, so we may stay here for a couple of nights.

    Exhausting beach day

    November 7, 2020 in Turkey ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Time to explore the area around Fethiye. After breakfast at the seafront, we cycled to Ölüdeniz. İt's a bay with a beautifully blue lagoon, an absolutely stunning location surrounded by high mountains. In order to get there, we had to climb across one of them. And the mountains here are very steep, so we were very happy we didn't have to carry our luggage today. At the beach, we went for a well deserved, nice and refreshing swim in the clear blue water.
    Afterwards, we had to climb up the mountain again. From this side, it was even steeper. Within only 2km, we gained over 300m in elevation, some sections were about 20%.
    On the way back to Fethiye, we took a detour via Karaköy. There's an old abandoned Greek city you can visit. As we have already seen similar sites here in Turkey, we only stopped for a couple of photos and continued our scenic ride.
    One more steep climb and we could roll into Fethiye. Just before the city center, we stopped again. This time, we visited the rock tombs. There was also an old Lycian sarcophagus in the middle of the road. Rather than burying their deads in a Necropolis outside of the city, people in Lycia used to get buried in between the houses. So up til now, you can still sea those sarcophagi in some of the roads in Fethiye.
    We spent the evening at the seafront watching people and strolling along the restaurants. Some of them offered live music and were lit in colourful lights, so it was nice walking around.

    Kayaköy

    November 5, 2020 in Turkey ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    After lots of ancient history, here's s bit of 20th century history, 1923, to be more specific. For centuries, Turks and Greeks lived together, both in Greece and Turkey. After a war between those 2 countries, both Greece and Turkey decided to repatriate those of the other heritage that were living among them. The two countries called this a population exchange.
    Kayaköy is a former Greek town where all the residents were kicked out and sent to Greece. The town of about 700 houses sites abandoned.

    Liman & Ölüdeniz

    October 5, 2016 in Turkey ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Der Hafen von Fethiye ist einer der schönsten den ich je gesehen habe. Am liebsten hätte ich hunderte Fotos geschossen, doch dann wären wir gar nicht mehr vom Fleck gekommen.
    Denn schließlich hatten wir uns vorgenommen heute nach Ölüdeniz zu fahren und einen Strandtag zu verbringen.
    Uns wurde vorher von dem Wasser vorgeschwärmt und jetzt können wir diese Schwärmerei auch verstehen. Das Wasser ist wunderbar klar und blau! Hier haben wir nur zu gerne den Tag ausklingen lassen.
