It was a holiday of the kind I've never had before. I will be honest to say that Turkey has never been high on my list of places to visit, but we (my fiance and I) had the opportunity to share a beautiful villa with friends and so we took it.
And I am so glad we did.
We had two weeks of fun, laughter, sunshine and experiences.
Turkey, more importantly, Dalyan where we stayed, was lovely, and the people friendly.
We explored the town on bikes, ate at local restaurants, shopped at the markets and learned how the people lived.
Having our own private villa was like a home away from home, only a little bit more glamorous as we don't have a pool in England! LOL
We swam in the Aegean Sea. So clear and beautiful.
The boat we hired for two separate trips. The captain/owner, Ali, was a very friendly and generous man who gave us free reign of his boat to do as we liked, including jumping off the roof into the water!

The pool at the villa just as the sun is coming up. I took this picture on our last morning. We were sorry to leave.
I can't wait to go back and enjoy it all again. Oh, and the Turkish Delight was yummy!
