Holiday is over {sigh}

Well we are now back from turkey arrived back late thursday evening.
What a wonderful time we had people, food sun all great. Not had time to download the many photographs that were taken as yet, just getting back to some sort of order really!
Out hosts made us so welcome we spent the first two nights in istanbul at leyla and ugurs home and did quite a bit of sightseeing in the city itself, then on the third day we travelled to assos about 3oo miles away on the agean sea amazing!! picture the scene only seven rooms surrounded by olive trees and the agean 1 minute from our room our own private jetty with steps into the sea where we could swim with all the fishes , drinks served when we wanted and afternoon chi {tea} served with small pastries every day AH! it was wonderful, and the food all freshly cooked they even made sure that tony had nothing with gluten in so leyla had said something before we had arrived i think, meze of seven different thing every night followed by small fish course then your main meal which was also fresh fish but all of it was superb. Oh yes and i forgot the hammocks under the olive trees just perfect for an afternoon nap after a hard day of swimming and sitting in the sun. We then came back via Troy and Gallipoli and spent our last two nights back in istanbul. Photos to follow next week. Such a lovely time thanks to our hosts for everything.
