Back by special request!
I hadn’t planned to vlog this trip but having been approached by a loyal and long standing fan of my work
I thought a short vlog wouldn’t hurt!
So this year Thelma and Louise have become Charlie’s Angels...according to several restaurant greeters! We are now 3!
We arrived late on Thu night having flown TA Birmingham- Istanbul, Istanbul- Dalaman. The flights were good - bit of an issue at Ist as a member if airport staff directed us straight from the plane into the international departure lounge rather than via immigration and onto domestic departures.....after alot of walking and asking people what we should do there was a great deal of panic and photographing of our boarding cards before security were summoned to escort us to the right place! Good job we had 3 hours to spare!
We’re staying at our normal location just in a bigger apartment - near Anka supermarket. First morning was a trip to Nur Hakan for a hammam and massage! Great way to start the trip...we have never felt so clean..... afternoon by the pool where we caught up with old friends over a very nice gin we picked up in the airport, followed by a trip into town to say hello to familiar faces and have dinner at Trio
We had complimentary mezze followed by tropical chicken for 2 of us and chicken Kavurma for the other. My tropical chicken was delicious! We has a cocktail each and total bill was 420tl. A little bit pricey but not horrendous. It was very busy and we felt a bit rushed but would go again. Chatted with the old Alternatif boys at Sherlock Holmes and booked a tsble for Monday night...looking forward to that
Saturday was a pool day - made the schoolboy error of sitting having breakfast with no sun screen and have a very red nose to show for it!
