Third and final day at Karacan Weavery

A travel blog entry by sandradgillis


Again we made our way to YeşIlyurt for our final day of weaving. Lots to do. First we finished weaving, so our projects could come off the looms. Then we learned how to twist fringes by hand, make a knotted fringe, add tassels and finally make Leno. We didn't finish the Leno so now we all have homework! Though no one will be checking up on us. The Karacan's were all delightful and so good to us, it was a wonderful three days. After school was over for the day, a young ...

This is beehive country. ...

Catching up with friends in Hisaronu

A travel blog entry by tartanbeat


Took a bus to Fethiye, then dolmus to Ovacik.....where we caught up with Fi, Auds and Angela on holiday for a week, and staying in another friends' apartment in Ovacik. We cadged 3 nights on their floor.

Much drinking, eating and socialising, and of course swimming in the pool!

We did take on one of the hardest walks we've ever tried - compounded by the searing heat and loose stoney ground!
We took off just after 9am, and it was ...
