Travel Blogs from Marmaris
Yesterday we arrived in a very sleepy little town by the edge of another large lake. Our aim was to catch a boat cruise down to the coast, see some turtles and return to Koycegiz. There was nothing much happening in the town, apart from the various political parties blasting music from their vans as they tried to outdo each other! So this morning ...
... a real jet-set place.
The waterfront and boardwalks have a great ambience and are full of great 'turkish style' open-air restaurants.
For us these Turkish Riviera Resorts are a real 'find' and match any in the rest of Europe .. they are beautiful.
... and mountainous, manly vegetated by conifers or sheoak-type trees. The water is typical Med - crystal clear.
I plan to stay in Marmaris until Saturday, then go to Fethiye to look at another boat. I have no idea how long I will stay here in Turkey; it depends on several things. Here are just a few pix that I took while having lunch today at the marina. Love and best wishes to all.
... just like being at home! Apart from the temples carved into the cliffs dating back to 400BC. We got onto a boat to travel down the river delta, it was spooky (or was to me as I was the only one who had seen Apocalypse Now). If I had heard choppers I would have been diving for cover. We had another swim (and a body surf!) at the river mouth before a beautiful lunch and a memorable visit to the thermal baths. The ritual was: step into the mud pool, extract a huge pile of ...
... temporary henna tattoos which gave us a lasting memory of the day.
All in all I hugely enjoyed my time spent in Mugla. It is a small city with no tourists, however this gives you the chance to really explore the Turkish culture.
I would definitely recommend CSV; it gave me the opportunity to meet people from all over the world including Taiwan, Korea and from all over Europe.
