I have lots of fantastic memories made from travelling to a variety of wonderful places, but one of my favourites was a holiday with my mum as a teenager to Turkey. What made it even more memorable was she came home one day from town and said “pack your case we’re going to Turkey tonight!”. Those were the days when people walked into Travel Agents and asked for any late deals due to cancellations. We spent 2 weeks in Turunc and back in the 1990s this was only a very small fishing village. Our hotel was opposite the local mosque and we heard the prayers 5 times a day from anywhere in the village. I was a teenager then and I found the whole experience and culture fascinating. Not to mention the daily cups of apple tea and delicious Turkish Delight! A highlight for me was when we took a 4 hour bus journey inland and visited the ruins of Ephesis and the magical white thermal clay springs of Pamukkale. It was my Mum’s birthday that day and I always look back on that as one of my holiday highlights growing up. Having the base in Turunc allowed us to travel to nearby Marmaris and Icmeler several times by local water taxi. I was too young to enjoy the local drink of Raki, but I have tried it on other visits to Turkey and I highly recommend it!
