Eminönü to Kadıköy by ferry. http://www.turkeysforlife.com/2015/09/eminonu-kadikoy-istanbul-ferry.html
What better way to get from A to B in a city than by ferry? Especially when it's an Istanbul ferry on the Bosphorus. :)

Turkish bulgur pilaf is perhaps our favourite accompaniment to many dishes, especially grilled meats. Yummy. :)

+April Ozbilgin Thanks a lot. We prefer bulgur wheat to rice - especially with yoghurt. :)

Wandering the ruins of Kayaköy near Fethiye. http://www.turkeysforlife.com/2013/04/kayakoy-village-church-ruins-photos.html

Beautiful, melancholic Kayaköy, formerly Karmylassos, is a must visit when you're in Fethiye.

Our round-up of January 2016 in Fethiye. Enjoy. :)
2016 and it’s time for our (roughly) monthly round up of goings on that we’ve noticed around Fethiye. Not official news or anything like that – just our little random updates and musings . In this seemingly topsy turvy crazy world we all seem to be living in at the moment, you’ll be pleased to know …

Pilav (Rice & Bulgur Dishes)  - 
 
We eat so much bulgur in our house. Here's our recipe for Domatesli Bulgur Pilavı, one of our favourite bulgur dishes. :)
Bulgur wheat is a staple in Turkey. Walk around any Turkish market & you'll see loads of bulgur on sale. Try this simple Bulgur Pilaf recipe.

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 :)
