mediterranean coast, turkey:

So right now we are in the harbour town of Fethiye in Turkey after disembarking our gullet boat. We travelled from Olympos, exploring beautiful bays, islands and even the odd ruin or two. There were around 18 people travelling with us and it was an excellent mix, with everyone having something to offer. We met some really cool people which is something we really enjoy when travelling around. 
The Mediterranean coast is stunning. The water is the most amazing blue, and then turns into a magnificent turquoise as it starts gets shallow. We stopped off a couple of times to visit towns such as Kas, made many swimming stops and just chilled. It was a lovely, relaxing few days. The highlight of the trip was probably Butterfly Valley, a gorgeous little beach surrounded by mountains. We were able to explore a little further and hiked up to the waterfall that is about 1km inland. 

Today we leave Fethiye and head north to Pamukkale and Ephesus before returning to Istanbul and flying to Lebanon.

  2. Your boat detail shots are awesome. Love the one of the mast that's perfectly symmetrical. Pamukkale is such a neat area-- no place like it on earth. Can't wait to see how you capture it.
