All along the Turquoise Coast

The bus ride to Fethiye from Olympos was a milk run but we did get a beautiful view of the Turquoise coast as the bus drove through Kumluca, Kas, and Kalkan - all nestled between the mountains and the Mediterranean Sea.

We checked into the Ideal Pension in Fethiye and had a night out on the town with Pascal and Lotus. We sampled the delicious local food, tried Raki for the first time (Turkey's version of Ouzo), and smoked the water pipe before turning in for the night.

This morning we met up again and caught a dolmus to Oludeniz, the beautiful lagoon south of Fethiye. It was too cold for a swim but we did bask in the sun with some good food and drink for a few hours before heading back to town in the evening.

We are especially excited to be returning to Oludeniz tomorrow for paragliding (we saw loads of them soaring over the beach today). Should be fun!
