Day 33 - Turkey

Day 33 – Friday 13th August 2010 - Turkey
South Coast of Turkey

Time to pack up and hit the road again. If you are looking for somewhere to stay in Dalyan we both can happily recommend Hotel Mico as a very pleasant place to stay.

Our next destination was Blue Lagoon at Oludeniz, unfortunately payment was required to see the Natures Blue Lagoon and for parking nearby. Settling for a nice view of the beach and a tasty kebab we continued east.                                    

The coastline of southern Turkey is very beautiful as you will hopefully be able to see from the photos and Mother Nature blessed us with a glorious sunset.

Such an amazing sight to see after a very long days driving

Dinner was called “Gozleme” and eaten at a roadside hut. Gozleme is a savoury Turkish hand-rolled pancake which was filled with potato, cheese, minced meat and cooked over a hot griddle or stone, and washed down with a cup of Chai (black tea). I quite liked the Gozleme, though found it to be very dry. Zowi didn’t rate it as highly and passed some onto my plate.

It was about 10pm when Zowi spotted a sign that always makes us happy “Camping”. The camping ground was behind a Petrol Station and we were the only guests at this old campsite apart from many broken marble statues. Very bizarre, and it reminded me of a Dr Who episode with the Weeping Angel Statues. It took a few minutes before I was brave enough to blink!
