Edinburgh, 25.10.2014

Happy 7th birthday to my twins! We took a morning train from Birmingham to Edinburgh. My mum was with us, she had only arrived to England yesterday. After several hours looking at beautiful Scottish landscape, we finally arrived. We had a few hours only to walk around in Edinburgh before we headed to airport. Visited market street and castle outside. Kids found a funny mirror outside of a bar, the kind of mirror showing you all kind of funny shapes. It was a bit rainy, coming down from castle high narrow stairs was a bit scary. It’s  very beautiful town, I would definitely like to visit again.

Turkey 25.10-4.11.2014

I flied to Turkey with my mum and 3 children, from Edinburgh to Dalaman airport. It was last EasyJet flight, so it was very cheap. We arrived late, so we took a taxi to Fethiye straight to the hotel. It was a small hotel, season was finished and guests gone home, looked a bit abandoned. Next day in the morning we went to explore the town, went straight to beach and walked until town centre. It was too cold to swim, a lot of fishermen. A beautiful small town with historical places.

Then we took a bus to Pamukkale (meaning “cotton castle” in Turkish). The most amazing place I’ve been to, so beautifully white and that warm water. Looks like an ice. We spent a night there in Grand Sevgi spa hotel.

Next day in the morning we took a bus to Denizli. From where took a bus to Side, where we stayed 4 nights in Anthos Garden Apart Hotel. Season was finished and we were almost only guests. Hotel was nice, close to the town centre. There are lot of archeological sites in Side and nice beach. We took a day trip to Taurus mountains, Green lake, visited orange gardens.
