Wishing my life away!
« on: July 10, 2017, 08:16:19 AM »
Never thought I would do it but here I am wishing my life away till June next year. Never mind that we've got three wonderful weeks booked for October this year but June is my 70th birthday (no I don't believe I'm 70 either) and we've booked a beautiful Villa in the Old Town and to make it even more special our best friends Mor and Dave and their son and daughter in law are coming out to share it with us. Fingers crossed Mandy and Paul and Jackie and Tim may also be out here to share my birthday. Can't bring myself to say 70th again, Whoops I've said it.

Similar to you Joyce! It's our 25th wedding anniversary next year and we are dragging some family out with us to celebrate. So looking forward to introducing beautiful Kalkan to my family exit year but we still have September for 2 weeks to look forward to  :)
Such a special place to have a celebration.
But like you say, I constantly feel like I'm wishing my life away. I just keep willing the time to go quickly just so I can be there again!!
Enjoy your **th Birthday  ;D

Thank you. I actually spent my 60th birthday in Kalkan and just don't know where those 10 years have gone.
I hope you have a fabulous 25th but how can't we have wonderful celebrations and memories in Kalkan.

Paradise is definitely the place to celebrate any special occasion isn't it, or even if it isn't a special occasion is still definitely the place to be!  :D :D :D :D

Joyce..... make the most of your 69th year and then you can really look forward to celebrating your 70th next year. We've only been back a week and have been lucky enough to book another visit in September this year.......can't wait.

I know age is just a number but those milestones hit a nerve don't they, good or bad. I say milk it for what it's worth and start your preparations for your 70th celebrations when you go in October. What fun you'll have finding perfect ways and places to enjoy your next years big birthday.  :-* :) :)

Well the good thing is joycie, you will still have something to look forward to when you are there in October...age is just a number, but the greater the number the more you can get away with things, in my experience. Ageing disgracefully is very much allowed ;)
Better to keep your mouth shut and appear stupid than to open it and remove all doubt :)

Joycie, bit milestones come as a shock but it's means you're allowed to drag out your birthday for longer than usual!  :laugh:
I've been dragging out my 60th this year and intend to for some while yet! Mind you please don't be too rowdy.....we'll be in kalkan next June, and October this year!!  ;D ;D

We're getting within counting distance. The days have flown by and Kalkan is within touching distance. Sue had our passport details today and I can almost feel the Ooh factor when I step into Sahane and see that view for the first time.
First time we've stopped there and had it all to ourselves.Will we sleep in the top room for the first time or stop in our usual room where we're comfortable.
We'll be looking out on the Villa where I'm going to celebrate my 70th birthday. Wow that's booked and the flights all in place wishing my life away again.
So next time I report on this page we'll be there !

Thank you Jayne have loved reading your reports of your wonderful holiday. We have been over to Meiss a couple of times but never stopped there. Remember having the most humongous pork chop in a restaurant on the harbour there and being surrounded by about 20 cats whilst we ate.
Also always bought metaxa at the duty free there and enjoyed  the contents once we returned to Kalkan.
Did you have to wait some time for the return of your passports?

Joycie, we had to wait about 45 minutes for the passports, always panic about it, as seems chaotic, but their system seems to work doesn't it? We didn't have a pork chop this time, but last year we did, and I know what you mean they are huge aren't they! We opted for the amazing king prawns both evenings, they are absolutely delicious!  :D :D

Enjoy your celebrations in Kalkan this year. Have fun x

I can almost touch Kalkan but not quite. We had a beach party on the moorings of the boat club and I fell in the canal whilst trying to get on to the boat with a bowl of trifle in my hand. Held on for dear life but did get a little damp but I saved the trifle! A little bruised and dishevelled this morning but a great time had by all. My husband thinks I should play rugby for England ladies.

Trouble is what kind of person thinks of a trifle before falling into the cut? Sad or what! Roll on Kalkan and a trifle won't even figure in my dreams just pure heaven being in our favourite place.
