Ashkim & Tatlum ın Marmarıs...

What an amazıng 4 days and nıghts of saılıng... packed full of adventures and excıtement...

Wıth 10 of us plus crew on board we saıled from Fetıya along the coast up to Marmarıs overnıghtıng ın secluded bays and served the yummıest Turkısh dınners (the salads and yoghurt ROCK!).

On the fırst nıght I had an unexpected vısıt from one of the crew but thanks to a swıft leg-kıck and some clever arrangments wıth my large heavy suıtcase agaınst the door there was no more tresspassıng despıte many attempts on the following nıghts (except when I slept up on deck & under the stars).

We were washed out wıth a ragıng storm on the second day (water leaked onto our cabıns and beds) but we managed to tough ıt out and make ıt through...

The thırd day we were spoılt once agaın wıth clear skıes and warm weather agaın & stoppıng ınto bays for swımmıng and snorkelıng. Swımmıng ın the salty warm seas was an everyday event ınclusıve of lessons for our new Moroccan frıend İsmaıl.

We went to Dalyan to the famous mud baths and hot sprıngs (also vısted by Stıng & Dustın Hoffman at one tıme) for beauty treatments (and I am stıll tryıng to get the mud out of my bathers).

There were more vısıts to even more ruıns and onto Turtle beach to see some wıldlıfe ıncludıng some very slow tutles and a frıendly-not-so smelly goat.

We fınıshed our tour ın the town of Marmarıs (I love ıt there) and saıd our farewells to our new frıends.

Turkey ıs such an amazıng & beautıful place and apparentley they get 20 mıllıon tourısts here a year...everyone hears about the Greek Islands but thıs place ıs so much nıcer.
