Topkapı Palace, Istanbul was the epicentre of the Ottoman empire. A place of politics & intrigue, read our guide to Topkapı Palace before you visit.

Istanbul's old Karaköy Fish Market wasn't just a market to buy fish but a place to eat fish too. Thankfully we can do the same at the new incarnation too...

Kavurma up in the mountains around #Fethiye  - at Kırkpınar Restaurant.
Kırkpınar Restaurant in the mountains near Nif is a great experience within reach of Fethiye. Pass Üzümlü then head upwards for tandır, BBQs, trout & more.

Seafood meze is a perfect way to eat fish. Small, tasty portions arrive at your table over a period of time, not filling you up too quickly.

While political relations between Turkey & Russia may be strained, the Women's Euro 2017 football qualifier match in Fethiye was a great sporting affair.

Remembering #Atatürk  
Anıtkabir, the mausoleum of Atatürk in Ankara, is a place to pay your respects and remember the great man, founder of the Turkish Republic.

Green Beans in Olive Oil (Zeytinyağlı Taze Fasulye) was the first Turkish dish I ever made. It's so easy & is a regular on our meze table.

Now living in Fethiye, South West Turkey. One half of the Turkey's For Life travel and food blog
Introduction
I'm the less talented half of Turkey's For Life - a travel blog about Fethiye and other places in Turkey.  Please add our Google Plus Page +Turkey's For Life to your circles for all of our Turkey photos and updates.

We write about things to do and see in Fethiye, Ölüdeniz, Çalış, Kayaköy, Dalyan and other nearby places. We also cover less-nearby places like Istanbul, Bodrum, Kaş and Kalkan.

There are also recipes for Turkish food on the blog and details of trekking routes in and around Fethiye.

One of the best bars in Fethiye. A regular afternoon chill out for us.

We've been to Istanbul many times before and have always loved the city - but, this time, staying at the beautiful Pasha apartment of Istanbul Place, made for our favourite visit yet... Staying at one of Istanbul Place's apartment is a truly unique way to actually feel like you are actually a part of the city, rather than simply a holidaymaker in Istanbul. The apartment itself was immaculate and the views over towards Sultanahmet are out of this world. We normally stay in hostels or hotels in Istanbul, but that's probably a thing of the past now, because we'll certainly be staying in one of these gorgeous apartments again on future visits to Istanbul! Highly, highly recommended!

Nice guys - and a great place to eat, or just have a few drinks on the harbour.

Love it up at the Sundial Otel! You can easily spend the full day around the pool and then stay for the fantastic sunset in the evening. Great staff, great views. Perfect!
