The Roadtrip to Pamukkale, Turkey – Pt 1

We started off as we mean to go on.  With an enjoyable and relaxed morning in the company of Liz, Dave and their animal family [our Dalyan housesit, which we know we are going to enjoy] before we headed off towards Pamukkale which would be our base for a couple of nights. What were our… Continue reading The Roadtrip to Pamukkale, Turkey – Pt 1

New Housesit + New Culture = Adventure

THE FLIGHT With the sun streaming down, (yes you did read that right, it was sunny on our last day),  as we boarded our flight from Bristol to Dalaman.

Mini and Possum

Wandering off to Turkey

"Where exactly is your next housesit?" "Dalyan, Turkey", [me] "Did you say Turkey? Isn't that close to Syria where the terrorists come from?." "There are Muslims there,  not sure about the terrorists", [me]   You get the drift of a few recent conversations with people naturally concerned for our welfare, and we love them for their… Continue reading Wandering off to Turkey
