Gypsy Travelers' Tracy And Kerry travel blog

Everyone on the Cruise playing New Zealand drinking games...........SILLY aren't they!!!

On the Cruise.........everyone was just relaxing and sunbathing while we sailed to...


HELLO,

WELL, IT'S BEEN A LITTLE WHILE SINCE MY LAST ENTRY AND A LOT HAS HAPPENED SINCE...................WE STAYED IN ANTALYA FOR ABOUT 5 DAYS JUST TO SAVE SOME MONEY.

YOU SEE, WE BOUGHT SOME AUTHENTIC TURKISH DELIGHTS TO SEND HOME TO THE FOLKS. THE WHOLE THING ENDED UP COSTING US OVER 100 MILLION TURKISH LIRA (100 CAD). THAT SET US BACK A LITTLE BIT, BUT ANYTHING FOR OUR FAMILY.

THEN AFTER A COUPLE OF DAYS IN ANTALYA, DOING NOT A HECK OF A LOT, WE HEADED OUT TO OLIMPOS.

ONE OF THE NICEST THINGS HAPPENED TO US..............WHILE WE WERE TRYING TO FIGURE OUT WHICH WAY WE HAD TO GO TO THE BIG BUS STATION, A GUY STOPPED IN THE MIDDLE OF TRAFFIC, ON HIS SCOOTER, TO ASK US WHERE WE WERE LOOKING TO GO. HE THEN TOOK THE TIME TO EXPLAIN WHERE EXACTLY WE HAD TO CATCH THE BUS..............COOL! WE HAVEN'T EXPERIENCED THAT FOR A WHILE. TURKEY ROCKS!!!!

WHEN WE GOT TO OLIMPOS (OR JUST OUTSIDE OF IT) WE MET ANOTHER FELLOW TRAVELER, FROM MORROCCO, NAME: AZEDINE. HE TURNED OUT TO BE QUITE A HAGGLER AND VERY INTERESTING AS WELL. HE'S A TEACHER OF MATHEMATICS AND COMPUTERS AND HAS TRAVELED EXTENSIVELY THROUGHOUT THE WORLD.............PRETTY NEAT!! WE GOT A BUS TO RUN AN HOUR EARLY AND THEN HAGGLED OUR PRICE ON THE NEXT PLACE CALLED, SABAN PENSION. WE GOT ONE OF THE BEST DEALS YET, 15 MILLION EACH, INCLUDING BREAKFAST AND DINNER. IT WAS GREAT, BUT REALLY FLIPPIN COLD AT NIGHT....................AFTER THE 2ND DAY THERE WE FOUND THE GUY WHO DOES THE BOAT CRUISE FROM OLIMPOS TO FEITHYE AND PUT OUR DOWN PAYMENT FOR THE CRUISE THAT STARTS ON THURSDAY. SO, ONE MORE NIGHT IN OLIMPOS...................

COME THURSDAY MORNING, AFTER BREAKFAST, WE PAID OUR BILL AND THEN GOT PICKED UP AT 10AM. THE BUS RIDE TO DEMRE' WAS VERY LONG. THEY ALSO STOPPED AT A SITE FOR AN HOUR SO THAT ADDED A LITTLE MORE TIME TO THE TRIP. WE FINALLY GOT TO THE BOAT AT ABOUT 3PM AND THEN THAT WAS IT WE WERE PRETTY MUCH SET FOR THE NEXT 4 DAYS.

THE CRUISE WAS AWESOME!!!!! WE MET SOME OF THE FUNNIEST, PARTYING NEW ZEALANDERS, EVER............DESPITE A FEW THINGS THAT COULD HAVE MADE ME SAY, "GET ME OFF THE SHIP!" WE HAD, PROBABLY ONE OF THE MOST EXCITING AND MEMORABLE TIMES, YET. WE DID LOTS OF SWIMING, SNORKELING, DRINKING AND GAME PLAYING WE HAVE FOR A LONG TIME....................NONE OF US WANTED TO GET OFF OF THE SHIP.

WELL, HERE WE ARE, RIGHT NOW, IN FEITHYE'. EVERYONE FROM THE BOAT STUCK TOGETHER ON FINDING A PLACE, WHICH WE ENDED UP AT A REALLY NICE PLACE FOR 12 MILLION EACH, INCLUDING BREAKFAST. THAT WORKS OUT TO BE ABOUT 10 CANADIAN DOLLARS EACH. THE ROOMS ARE NICE, BUT MOSTLY WE ARE WITH OUR NEW FRIENDS.

THERE IS 4 NEW ZEALAND GUYS; BEN, HAMISH, ANDREW, NICK AND ANOTHER ONE WE HAVEN,T QUITE GOT HIS NAME YET. ALSO, AN AUSTRALIAN/CANADIAN COUPLE WHO ARE JUST LEAVING THE UK AFTER TWO YEARS. AN AMERICAN NAMED: JONATHAN, AND HE IS AN AMERICAN, TOTALLY!!! VERY FUNNY, THOUGH. THE BOYS' ARE REALLY INTO PICKING UP CHICKS AND THE COUPLES' ARE A LITTLE LESS INTO PARTYING THAN THEY ARE, BUT WE ALL STILL HAVE A REALLY GREAT TIME TOGETHER. LIKE LAST NIGHT ON THE BOAT, WE PLAYED SOME OF THE MOST CRAZY, HUMILIATING GAMES I HAVE EVER PLAYED IN MY LIFE, BUT MY GOD, DID WE LAUGH....................WE'RE NEVER COMING HOME...........OH YA, I (TRACY) HAD A CHANCE TO GO PARAGLIDING FOR 150 MILLION LIRA, WHICH IS ABOUT 110 CANADIAN DOLLARS, CHEAP, CHEAP, CHEAP!! BUT IT WOULD HAVE REALLY SET US BACK A LOT SO I DIDN'T GO, BUT BRIAN WENT................AND HE SAID IT WAS AWESOME!!! I JUST FILMED IT, AS MUCH AS I COULD. WE JUST STAYED ON THE BOAT AND SWAM, SUNBAKED AND PADDLE BOATED AROUND THE BLUE LAGOON..................TO CONT'D.........
