During my recent week in Kaş on the Mediterranean Sea, I was offered the opportunity to go Canyoning. I wasn't sure I would have the physical ability to go canyoning - plus, I still struggle with a fear of water. (Although in hindsight, I think I could have done it!) So instead, I offer you this...

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 →

The Kaş Pazarı is held every Friday. It's located on Ataturk Blv, just way the peninsula meets the town. There are a lot of good deals to be had and new things to try (like the fruit of a cactus)! Look for local olive oil, cheeses, and of course, the vegetables of the season!

Our story continues from our day of kayaking. You will recall that our group had piled into the minivan, worn and tired and happy from our day on the sea. The van gently rocked us into deep reflection as we nodded off to sleep. Suddenly, the van stopped abruptly and I saw a police car... Continue Reading →
