Adventures in rural Anatolia

A place to live

When the road bends


In the valley

Traversing the mountain roads between the Riviera and the Lake District.

Aquabikes and flyboards

Free ride

There was an aquabike and flyboard competition in Antalya last week. While an aquabike appears to be a jetski, a flyboard is something entirely different, kind of like a jetpack that uses water to propel itself.





It was a great event and a wonderful way to spend a summer day.

Brightness in the summer


Where palm trees sway

Rained the haze off

Colours morning and night.

Three July superlatives

Early morning super moon

Never a bad time for a nap

A waffle for two

Super moon, power nap, and mighty waffle.

The hot nights are here

At the corner of the square

World Cup madness

Still keeping watch

Refreshment and relaxation

July is shaping up to be crazy… in a good way.

Summer in Kemer

Too cool to walk


The angle that kind-of worked

A Saturday spent up the road, where I used to live.

Record highs all around

About time for a cave swim

Ready for me

The July colour

Temperatures in the low 40s and the sea beckons.

Bahar Şenliği

Everyone is out and about until late in the evening. It’s a celebratory atmosphere.
