Turkey's For Life

When we were in #Istanbul  in April, we stayed in +Istanbul Place Apartments. That meant we got to know the #Galata  area much better than we did before. This post is all things Galata. :) 
Galata is an ideal location for us to overnight in Istanbul. A neighbourhood with its own personality. We'll definitely stay in Galata again in the future.

As we waited to meet friends in front of Istanbul's Galata Tower in Beyoğlu in April 2015, a group of folk musicians set up to play Hungarian and Romanian folk music. We filmed this short clip just because they created such a good atmosphere around the square.

#19Mayis   #Fethiyespor1933  
19 Mayıs Gençlik ve Spor Bayramımız kutlu olsun. Allah bu vatanı yeni zaferlere, yeni kurtuluş savaşlarına muhtaç etmesin. 

Türk Yıldızlar her 19 Mayıs'da olduğu gibi bugün Samsun'da gösteri uçuşu yapacak. 1993'den beri gösteri uçuşu yapan Türk Yıldızları Akro Timi bugün bir ilki yaşayacak. Bir kadın pilotumuz Binbaşı Pilot Esra Özatay uçuşta olacak. Ayrıca uçuşta Türk Yıldızlarının tek şehidi Yzb. Ümit Özer'in Çarşamba'daki mezarı üzerinden saygı uçuşu gerçekleştirecekler. 

Yüce Atatürk'ün manevi kızı, dünyanın ilk kadın savaş pilotu Sabiha Gökçen'in yolunda ilerleyen tüm kadın pilotlarımıza kazasız uçuşlar dileriz.

As it's bakla season, we thought we'd share our recipe with you. Bakla and sucuk together - a yummy mix! :)

Pilav (Rice & Bulgur Dishes)  - 
 
If we try a great street food in Turkey, we just have to attempt to make it when we get home. This is our recipe for nogutlu pilav. :) Afiyet olsun.

The Turkish recipe, Nohutlu Pilav, chickpeas with chicken and rice, is so easy, cheap, fantastically filling and really tasty. We make it with leftover barbecued chicken

Hi all. We love olive oil dishes, especially as the weather starts to heat up in Turkey. This is our recipe for zeytinyağlı yeşil fasulye. Afiyet olsun. :)
Green beans in olive oil was the first Turkish dish I made after our first Turkish holiday in Fethiye

We knew May 19th was Commemoration of Atatürk and National Youth and Sport Day, but we had not realised it was May 19th until we saw the flags in Fethiye

As part of the Fethiye International Culture & Arts Festival, musicians from all over the world come to Fethiye to perform. While Los Vagabundos performed at Kayaköy yesterday, Traveler frontman and violinist, Scott Jeffers, was invited to join them on stage. This was the result. :)

One of our favourite places for a drink in Fethiye. Great views, free popcorn, good atmosphere and chill out music. Lovely owner and attentive staff - what else could you want? Get in the lift and go up and see them :)

Consistently one of the best restaurants in Fethiye. Try some authentic Eastern Turkish food from the Hatay region. Very popular so book in advance to be certain of a table.

A must see in Fethiye. It's a restaurant and bar as well as a hotel and has a swimming pool in a wonderful setting. Beautiful views all over Fethiye - and our favourite place to catch a Fethiye sunset.

Great place for a drink if you are in the Fethiye area. It's at the quiet end of Çalış Beach and the owners Güven and Carol are lovely people.

Our favourite bar in Fethiye. Great place to chill and people watch in Paspatur, the old town of Fethiye. Always a warm welcome - and a cold drink :)
