Day 29 - Turkey

Day 29 – Monday 9th August 2010 – Turkey

It didn’t take long for all the Dolmus’s buzzing around our tent to get us up and going early. Three mountain goats were enjoying breakfast near the rubbish bins which reminded us that we too would need some grub.

A £2 full English breakfast also provided toilets facilities which the Dolmus Terminus stop didn’t. Fed, nourished and emptied, we moved onto the nearby town of Dalyan – home of the nesting Caretta Turtles (Loggerhead Turtles). 

2 nights of poor sleep and no shower or toilets facilities left us determined that we would find somewhere to stay much earlier in the day. Driving into Dalyan was the right choice. After visiting the River front we decided upon a boat trip the following day. There was a good selection of “Aparts” and small hotels, but again, no campsites.

Hotel Mico on the main road offered good value for money, and was only 10 minutes walk from the town centre. Air Con, showers, a toilet, and even a swimming pool!

A restful afternoon was enjoyed next to the pool before going into town for some nourishment and to book a 3 hour Turtle Boat trip for the following morning.
