Henry and I took a trip to Turkey last week. Henry's mum is a great fan of Turkey and goes out there often so we thought it would be fun to join her there for a while. I have to say I have never been on a holiday quite like it before but I enjoyed it very much none the less! I wish I was still there!
Here are some of the things we saw and did:
|we ate out A LOT!|
|Henry, me and his mother|
|ate chocolate gateau from a patisserie|
|Henry drinking iced tea|
|bought some tzatziki spice|
|ate turkish ice cream|
|more turkish delight|
|went on a crazy sofa ride in the sea|
|visited Icmeler- a quieter and more beautiful version of Marmaris|
|Did lots of swimming in the sea|
|posed on the mermaid fountain|
It was such a good holiday! It was really hot there so we spent a lot of time dipping in and out of the sea and lying on sunbeds. We also had a turkish bath where we got loofah'ed down and them covered in foam and then had an all over body oil massage. We ate out at so many restaurants. Henry and I were keen to hunt down the more traditional local places rather than the touristy ones on the beach front. We ate a lot of lentil soup and mezze.
We had a really nice meal one night at a restaurant called Ali Baba's. It was traditional Turkish cuisine. Chickpeas, rice, aubergine, lentil soup etc.. Afterwards we watched the dancing fountains and then got Turkish ice cream. Turkish ice cream is different to English ice cream. It stretches like chewing gum or mozzarella. It's also not quite as sweet. We got a tub of chocolate and blackcurrant together. It was a SUCH a good combination. We ate it on the seafront looking out to sea.
Ah looking at these photos just makes me want to be back there! In the sunshine. It's back to reality now...
Have you been anywhere nice this summer?
