Sun, Sea and Shirl!
« on: July 30, 2015, 07:06:56 AM »
Good Morning Folks

Well the day has finally arrived, and we are off to Kalkan! We've been waiting for this day for way too long, and can't believe it's finally here!

We aren't flying until this evening, OH has just one more morning at work, and then a leisurely drive up to Heathrow.  Bags are all packed and just the obligatory frozen bacon and sausages to go in! Not many clothes packed this year, as we have left plenty of things out there, but this year, a new kettle, toaster, and a "10 man" george foreman is in our case, no contraption for us this year, we have 2 sporty new IT cases from Tesco Direct!!

We are looking forward to meeting up with lots of our friends and having fun in the sun! Will promise to do a post or 2, and will keep you up to date with our adventures. As usual, a relaxing holiday ahead, but lots of things planned.  First boat trip on Sunday to Kekova, can't wait!  8) 8) 8) 8) :D :D :D :D

Soooohhh looking forward to reading all about your stay.
More pork smugglers than you can shake a stick at on this forum...good job this isn't TA or we'd be castigated to hell >:D
Jayne I hope your IT case fare better than ours - we bought the world's lightest ones and they didn't travel well. When we picked them up off the carousel at Dalaman mine was behaving like a wayward shopping trolley and any attempt I made to glide it on four wheels was met with stubborn resistance. It has since been promptly dispatched back from whence it came (Argos). BH's case is just a mass of oil stains...well he did opt for pastel pink, what can I say?
I would swap places with you in a heart beat...although I do realise the offer was not there on your part... :-\ :-*

K4E, I have to say, I too am not sure that the cases are as robust as we thought when we bought them.  Although they look very nice in light burgundy with fancy handles and wheels, the material doesn't seem very durable! but fingers crossed our mound of things in them will arrive in one piece! Just realised I didn't pack make up wipes, so off to Asda I've been, came back with wipes and 2 maxi dresses! just had to be done! so happy!!  :: :D :D

We  are still using the Samsonite cases we bought when we went to America in 1989, old fashioned  by  to days standard  but hey ho still robest and they do what we want them to do. We decided on that particular make when a lot of soft cases on the carousel was coming round ripped open and items missing.

Have a good flight B & J and enjoy your holiday.

Have a great holiday Bob & Jane. We will be getting our cases out of the loft at the weekend and I'm hoping that they'll still be serviceable. We normally just try to add some coloured ribbon to make them easier to identify on the carousel!! I'm convinced that everyone else uses the same tactic as our bags always seem to be the last ones off!!

Flying from Heathrow? Gosh, what a luxury - was it the Exclusive Escapes chartered flight? We're looking at doing that next year, if I'd love details! Enjoy your break and look forward to reading your reports :)

Have a fantastic time and a cold glass of white or four for us as for eight years it'll be the first time not being able to visit our favourite escape due to family illness. Shame really as it's our 25th wedding anniversary on the 11th but hey ho there's always next year God willing, think we'll have deserved it by then. Relax, live laugh and be happy, make some more great memories. Don't do anything we wouldn't do, so in other words GO FOR IT and enjoy your porky products. SERAFE  ;)

Leisurely Drive up to Heathrow?

An oxymoron, surely?

Maybe "IT cases - don't get me started" needs its own thread...?

Maybe IT cases do need they're own thread! When I read Shirl's post I thought they were taking lots of laptops, iPads etc. So that Shirl can keep us up to date with her shenanigans!  :laugh: :laugh:

Well we've relied on "the worlds lightest cases"
For a few years now. Gradually replacing all cases. When we bought the first couple a few years ago, they were fab. Durable and well made. We finally replaced the other two last year ( from Argos)  and to be honest they are rubbish. The handle on one is now bent and the wheels are not synchronised. There is also a tear in one (of the new ones). Moral of the story; the worlds lightest cases were wonderful when they first came out and are still going strong ( from TJ's) but the Argos version are rubbish!  >:(
