Oct 19, 2016 - Turkey ... Saklikent Gorge

Todays adventure was more about the windy back road drive, the great "catch your own lunch" we had and the people we met ... vs the actual Saklikent Gorge. The gorge of course, was quite impressive, but honestly ... we had more fun getting there! The Saklikent Canyon is 18 km long, 300 meters deep and is steep and narrow ... also known as “Hidden Valley” or The Lost City. This gorge has various streams flowing from the Bey mountains ... and its cold ... REALLY cold ... like icy cold where your toes fall off cold. You can walk as far up the...

Mar 5, 2013 - Kaş

Another gorgeous day. We spent most of it down on the terrace by the sea. I got into my swimsuit and lazing around and reading in the sun was very pleasant. Another camper organised for the metal ladder into the sea to be set up and went swimming and snorkelling, but although it looked beautiful, when I ventured down the ladder I found it too cold to go further than my thighs!

Mar 3, 2013 - Kaş

Today clouded over about mid-morning and we changed into jeans and jackets for a walk along the waterfront, and around the town, stopping at Migros for beer and milk on the way back. Kaş is a picturesque town on a bay with the mountains behind. On the hillside behind a street of houses are Lycian tombs carved into the rock. It started to rain as we walked back, and then it set in for the rest of the afternoon, although it stopped later in the evening.

Mar 2, 2013 - Kaş

We left Sugar Beach just before 11am, stopped at the AZDA supermarket on the way out of town (it didn’t stock beer so David was unable to replenish) and continued south to Kaş. It was a beautiful day and the drive took just over 2 hours, on a good 4 lane highway through mostly rural country below snow-covered mountains until we reach Kalkan. From here the road reduced to 2 lanes with a rough surface but offered spectacular views over the clear blue sea as it wound around the coastline. We drove into Kaş centrum and turned right before the...

Mar 7, 2010 - Turkey: Kas

Kas--outstandingly beautiful, small and accessible with a Roman amphitheatre that still stands today, as wells as Lycian tombs from before the Romans. We enjoyed excellent food, a quiet village, views. The ubiquitous 'call to prayer' lulled us to sleep, rather than jarring us awake, as in Egypt. We found really cold beer. We looked at real estate listings. I look at listing everywhere, but when Jason looks... The villagers wandered about cleaning, organizing, waiting in anticipation for 'the season' when they earn in three months a year's...

Jun 18, 2009 - The end is nigh

as the great Andrea Boccelli sings, its almost "time to say goodbye" ( to Turkey )! What a great family time we have been fortunate to have here in Turkey. Saturday morning we will leave Kas for Istanbul and London. We will spend a few days in London and then get home Monday or Tuesday. Yesterday we felt we needed one more day on the water before we left so we booked another boat trip out of Goçek - about a 2 hour drive west of Kas. Sarah had just heard that she passed her licensing exams so she is officially Dr Sarah and we thought that...

Moodies Do Turkey!

Jun 10, 2009 - Kas

Our base is now the villa at Kas on the south west coast of Turkey. The villa is a home exchange with Geoff Plant's cousins from Manchester. His family have this as their vacation home - they will be coming to stay in our house in July. Works out very nicely to have a base to enjoy this history rich area and even nicer to have the pool to fall into after a hard day of touristing in +30C! Doria doesn't accept that it's ever too hot to visit a ruin. Kas is a small port town with the expected mix of services for visitors and locals. Great...

Moodies Do Turkey!

Jun 6, 2009 - #4

Our three days of driving around Cappadocia were very interesting - we covered a lot of ground and had a very good itinerary prepared by our hosts at Esbelli Evi. The driving was mostly on small back roads where the infamous speedy local drivers were nowhere to be seen, as a matter of fact most of the "traffic" turned out to be slow moving farm vehicles, cows, sheep, chickens and the odd turtle! Being friendly Canadians we avoided hitting any of them! We left Cappadocia and flew back to Istanbul for one more night. Jocelyn's workplace had...

Moodies Do Turkey!

Sep 13, 2008 - Kas, Turkey

Tim -- Even before we started this journey, Ravi and I spent a considerable amount of time together. Partly, this is because we live together, but mostly it’s because we enjoy each other’s company and have several interests in common. Three of those interests all came together in a coastal Turkish town called Kas (Sounds like Kosh). Ravi and I are passionate about scuba diving, kayaking, and walking around town with ice cream, and Kas was the perfect place to indulge all three. [Ravi -- though apparently Tim has a taste for the most...
