Cruising the Turkish Coast in a Gulet
In Turkish a gulet is a traditional wooden fishing boat converted for pleasure cruising. In English, however, words like "peaceful," "serene," and "stress-free" come to mind when I think of a gulet. Cruising along the Turquoise Coast of Turkey in the Mediterranean is relaxation at its very best.
Hiking Along the Lycian Way
Enjoy the delights of a 500 km coastal footpath stretching from Fethiye to Antalya along the part of the Turkish coast once known as Lycia. Noted in the list of Top Ten Walks, hiking really doesn’t get better than this. This is an area rooted in history where the mountains emerge abruptly from the forested shoreline revealing secluded bays. The pathway leads you past some of the world’s most beautiful scenery with panoramic views of Mount Tahtali’s limestone crests, dense forests and ancient ruins.
You should experience it at least once, before you determine whether you despise or love going into a Turkish bath or hamam.
