Arriving in Turkey. It always seems to take forever for the luggage to come does't it. But, as with all travel, you learn to be patient.
Well we are diffinantly into the HOT again. We arrived into Fethiye for a few days and the temperatures for the time we were there were all in the late 30s, 40c,s. We stayed at a small hotel called Classic Yacht Hotel which has it's own marina were Therapy along with Martin, Viv, Steph and Robin were waiting to have a catch up drink. Great to catch up, but Steph and Robin left the next day and Viv the day after. We had a day on the water with Martin, sailing from Fethiye to Goghek, stopping in a bay for a swim in the beautiful Aegean waters, showing Pam and Warwick a bit of what I have done in the past, pulling on a few ropes and just loving it as we had some great sailing. If you ever consider going to this area the Classic Yacht hotel is fantastic with great setting and pools, never over crowded and their restaurant is fantastic. We found that it was so easy to eat there and they looked after us so well that we ended up there most of the time for a very affordable and relaxing stay. Also, plenty to do around
Fethiye, what a magic place to eat, breakfast lunch, dinner or any snack or meal. The wind comes up during the day but mornings and evenings, heaven.
the area. So, after being spoiled we headed off to Rhodes for a few days and this afternoon we will head off to Santarini for the last of our island stops. One day we hired a car and drove around a lot of Rhodes island looking at some of the historic sites and a wine village and some of the beaches available. The main attraction of course is the old town surrounded by the old walls and buildings with heaps of markets and history. This is a very big area and takes alot of hot walking to cover. I think that we only really touched a bit of the available sights as a cool swimming pool begged attention in the hot climate so we spent a lot of the time there. Will catch up from Santarini.
