MANAVGAT [TURKEY DAY 4 #3]

Before you guys get sick of it, this is the third and last part of the little day trip we made in Turkey, the one that resulted in way too many photos. I already shared pictures of the part where we sailed across the Green Canyon (pretty!), as well as pictures of the waaay too short read more »

SELEUKIA [TURKEY DAY 4 #2]

Our day 4 in Turkey deserves a little more attention than the other days, since this was the only day we got out of our hotel to do some sightseeing. You can find the first part, which is devoted to our amazing boat trip on the Green Canyon, here (I do have included some more pictures in read more »

GREEN CANYON [TURKEY DAY 4]

I’ve been dying to show you these pics of our little day trip to the Green Canyon in Manavgat. Even though we planned to do ab-so-lu-tely-no-thing in Turkey, we couldn’t resist booking a trip to this gorgeous artificial lake and its surroundings. High up in the mountains, there’s a huge dam, behind which water from read more »

OH GUYS, THE ALL INCLUSIVE BUFFET [TURKEY DAY 3]

I don’t think I need to say anything more after you’ve looked at these pics. The all inclusive buffet in Turkey was fan-tas-tic, it’s a miracle we didn’t return home as tientonnertjes (as we would say in Dutch – it means really fat). Apparently, we did a good job in the gym, ‘cause we started every morning with read more »

POOL DAYS [TURKEY DAY 2]

I’m typing this while waiting for our transfer back to the airport, so I gotta keep it short. Here’s what our pool days in Side looked like. Gosh, I miss it already. Luckily, the hotel wasn’t fully booked, so there was always a spot with parasol available. After remaining in the shadows (and in the read more »

ARRIVED IN SIDE [TURKEY DAY 1]

Woohoo! We arrived in Side, Turkey, last Tuesday night! It’s ah-mazing here: sunny weather, great hotel, good food, etc. I just wanted to show you the first photos taken (mostly) with my phone, to give you a short impression. Basically all we do is sleep, relax, eat and sport (oh yeah) really well, so it’s read more »

LAST MINUTE TO TURKEY

After going through what was probably the most stressful six months EVER at university, and then having some really sad family stuff going on, and (because of that) breaking off my archaeological work in Greece earlier than planned to spend time with the people that are most important… hallelujah I need another vacation. I feel read more »

THORIKOS EVENINGS

I didn’t make as many pictures in Thorikos as I used to, but camera-wise I was very productive on our last evening, shooting pictures of the site and surroundings. I think they turned out really well and perfectly reflect the nicest part of the day, when it’s finally cooling down and you’re able to actually read more »

WHITE HOUSES AND BEACH PARASOLS

Still had some last relaxing Spain photos to share. They’re quite random, but I guess they reflect our go-with-the-flow state of mind over there. I maximally enjoyed the white houses everywhere, the wide beach with just a few people around and the long evenings with good food. As you might have seen on Instagram, I’ve read more »

VELATOURI HILL

Kind of lost for words, since privately things aren’t going that well. I’m still in Greece, considering the option to take an earlier flight (I planned to leave coming Sunday), but I think I just need a good night of sleep so I can think straight again tomorrow. In the meantime, I’d love to share read more »
