My husband and I joined the great folks from Xanthos Travel for another day on the water, sea kayaking at Kekova. Our guide, Alkan, was super fit and super knowledgeable. We met at the office around 7:30 a.m. Why so early? Well, they take their "adventures" very seriously down in Kaş. Water traffic has increased in... Continue Reading →
During our week in Kaş, my husband and I set out on our own sightseeing adventure. We drove to the neighboring town of Demre, formerly known as Myra. It was about a 45 minute drive - beautiful greenery, mountains, and sea side. Our first stop was the Church of St. Nick, THE St. Nick, Santa Claus!!... Continue Reading →

Here's something you don't see too often in Turkey - a DIY tile project! Labor is relatively cheap here, so most simply hire someone. I say "relatively" because prices of everything seem to be on the rise . . . everything but salary. The tile project is not quite done. We came across a lot... Continue Reading →
