Geordie duos travels
« on: September 13, 2019, 05:35:17 PM »
Hi everyone
This is my first ever time sharing my Kalkan holiday reports so here goes.

Arrived around midnight last night the flight was great not a single bump (thank you Jet 2)

We quickly unpacked and crashed.

Woke up this morning sooo excited looked out the window to black clouds coming over mountain.  Well I had a little sulk  for
2 minutes then made coffee and sat out and admired the view. It's so good to be back.

We walked to Merkez for our breakfast and it was delicious. With full bellies we walked to the fruit and veg shop for supplies..it's sooooo
cheap in there. Next was the supermarket for estential supplies of beer wine and zero tonic.

The time we walked back to the apartment the sun was out so it would be rude not to chill around the pool till 5.30.

Just getting my face on for heading into town. Not sure where we will eat tonight but will post tomorrow to let you know..

Tracy

Tracy.....good to hear that you had a smooth flight and arrived safely. I did  think that the weather wasn't too kind to you on your first day but, as you said, it did brighten up in the afternoon. I'm really looking to reading your holiday blog. I'll be writing my next instalment  tomorrow. Hopefully meet up for a drink before we fly home on Monday.

Day 2

We headed off for pre drinks at the moonlight bar. We bumped into some Geordie girls from home which was nice.

After our drinks we headed down to find somewhere to eat. Without going into too much detail we had the first inedible
meal in 15 years in Kalkan. We were really disappointed as this was our first night. The service and food was shocking.

After leaving the restaurant we sat outside black and gold only for it to start raining.   Could this first night get any worse.

We headed up to Shade bar (our favourite) where we had a few drinks and people watched.

Today we spent the morning at the pool till the rain and thunder came.  We decided to go to Lime bar to watch the toon (Newcastle)
We got beat off Liverpool..

Things can only get better (like the song by Dream)  surely.

Oh no Tracy

Sorry to hear you had a bad meal... hopefully tomorrow will be a much better day. I do have to recommend The Olive Garden, I had the cook your own steak there and it was lovely

Enjoy your holidays!

Hi Tracy, I was genuinely disappointed  to read that your first meal in Kalkan was a disaster and that the weather and football haven't been kinder to you both. If it's any consolation my team (Crystal Palace) are getting hammered by Spurs. I'm confident that the weather will pick up and that you will go on to enjoy another great holiday in Kalkan

That storm & rain was very badly needed, it's cleared the air & now it's just beautiful, even the trees & plants look refreshed.

Day 3

Well what a difference a day makes..

After our defeat by Liverpool and too many drinks in Lime bar we both headed to bed for a little nap.
We woke up at 8pm quick shower and headed into town. Quick look in berzerans to look for Keith but couldn't see him.

We meandered down to Merkez for a couple and before we knew it was 10pm.  With nothing booked we wandered to
Akin and enjoyed our meal. We both had chicken dishes can't remember the names but we both said the same, nice and the service was excellent.
With a bottle of house red the bill came to 185 very reasonable.

We walked back up death hill and ended our night in berzerans for a glass of wine. Perfect end to a lovely night.

Today we have chilled around the pool and I made lunch. Perfect day.

Tomorrow we are heading to Palm beach club.

Hi Tracy........I've now written my final blog and so I am now relying on you to keep me updated on all things Kalkan and your holiday exploits. It was really nice to meet up with you and Bill and hopefully  we will meet again in the future. Keith

Day 4 and 5

Sunday night we headed off in search of Keith and Tracey at berzarin and enjoyed a drink with them (lovely to catch up with you both)
This time in Kalkan we have decided to share our Lira around as we normally only have pre drinks at moonlight bar.
Tonight we enjoy a drink at Merkez they do a very nice glass of red.
Later we dined at LAL which was lovely I had the lemon chicken and Bill had the liver with a pomegranate sauce which he said was fab.
We walked down to fenner for ice creams.  Fully stuffed we finished the night back at berzarin people watching having had a lovely night.

Monday we headed off to the harbour to catch the boat to Palm beach club.  We stayed till after 6pm it was such a beautiful day. We had tea, coffee around 6 drinks and lunch there for £45 perfect day. We decided to walk back up death hill to our apartment (crazy idea).
After a quick turn around we headed into town for drinks in Merkez before our meal in Barharat. We both had steaks and they were delicious as usual.  We headed off to finish the night in shade bar untill the early hours chatting to lovely people.

Today we have chilled around the pool all day it's been lovely, I made lunch at the apartment. Just perfect.
Tonight we are going to see where we end up but will update you tomorrow.

Lovely report Tracy. I'm so pleased that the weather has improved and that you are both enjoying your holiday. We've just been informed that our normal villa isn't available on our preferred dates and so not sure whether or not we will be back next year. We'll see what's available and then make a decision.
