Dolphins, Jet Skis and Shooting Stars

We are just back from a two week visit to possibly my favourite place on earth, a little town in Turkey called Davutlar. It was my third time there, and I already want to go back. You can see a guest post on Turkey I did here to give you a bit of background about what I have previously seen here. This post is specifically about the things we got up to this visit!

 Dan, and Gi (who is my sister's friend) joined us this year, and neither of them have ever been to Turkey before so it was nice for us to be able to show them some of our favourite things. For the first few days we took it extremely slowly. There is a massive pool on the Site we stay on, and for the majority of the day it is quiet. Literally, there are times when I have been in the pool by myself. It is amazing when you consider that this pool is shared by 50 villas, that sleep 8 people each.

 The first 'proper' thing we did was hit Davutlar Market on Sunday. I love this market, its so small but you can find loads of bargains there, especially little knick knack bits. I especially like this one because it isn't too hassley unlike the Kusadasi market (which we still did!). They also sell Gozleme, which are like pancakes I guess but they are amazing, I had the mince meat one and it is gorgoeeeous! I want to make it at home. Kusadasi market is a lot bigger, but I got a couple of goodies from there too.

   One of my favourite things to do in Turkey is go out at sea on a boat trip. The boat trip is something I have done every time I have been to Turkey and it is honestly beautiful. The views you see are something else and it is just nice to be on the boat. I had heard that there was a chance of seeing dolphins in the wild, but I know that it is incredibly rare after talking to other people on the site. However, this time we actually saw them! It was so amazing. The captain drove us right over to the dolphins, and Dan was able to get on the plank at the front of the boat so the dolphins actually swam under him! Honestly, it was one of the best experiences ever. I felt so lucky!

 One of the bonuses of holidaying where the Turks holiday is that it is incredibly cheap. We decided to Jet Ski because it only cost 60TL (£18 roughly) for me and Dan to have a go for 10 minutes. Such a good price! It was quite scary but super fun too. Neither Dan nor I had ever done this before so it was really cool to be able to do something like this in one of my favourite places.

To carry on with the theme of a holiday of firsts, I also saw two shooting stars above the mountains. I have never seen shooting stars before and they were so pretty! 

  All in all, our holiday in Turkey was so relaxing but we saw a lot as well. I always hate coming home because I never feel as relaxed as I do there. Fingers crossed we'll be back soon!

Have you ever been to Turkey? Would you like to go?
