All-Inclusive Hotel Fun in Bodrum!

I had to include an ’09’ in the title for my own reference as this was my second trip to Turkey.

I’m really glad I have the time to show photos from this holiday.. I’ve been on quite a few holidays this year and have always wanted to share more about them but somehow I’ve let this blog become a lot more fashion-oriented lately so I abandoned that idea and stopped trying to find time for it!

In ’08 I went to Alanya, on the southern coast of Turkey and it was so awesome hence this year we decided to pay another visit to the country, but to a place called Bodrum. It’s also a coastal town but much closer towards the west (I think).

In ’08 I did lots of stuff like white-water rafting (so amazing), a boat tour, a jeep tour, vwear a hijab at a mountain mosque (that felt weird btw), have lunch on a floating..raft thing/cafe.. This time I did much more rotting and relaxing and thinking of nothing! I mean, I even read BOOKS. Yeah that’s BOOK with an S.

Here are some photos taken throughout the week from the hotel:

Isn’t it picture-perfect!

There were these yellow spongey things you could laze on atop the pier
They’re like giant yellow fish fingers!

That’s what I look like carrying it! Nearly Spongebob!
Btw I LOVE Spongebob.. wait till you hear me sing songs from the show!

Water was like ice

After every mealtime this guy would come here to feed the fish with leftover bread
There were lots and lots of fish
I laid by the edge and stared at them for ages

Getting my camera ready!

There were a couple of these egg hut things
They’re SO comfortable you wouldn’t believe
I had a long nap there
Best thing is waking up to being served with burger and chips by my XY

Spent hours watching the sunset
OK fine it wasn’t hours but it sure felt like it

The chef cooks us something special every morning in addition to the buffet
In this picture it was cheese omelettes
Pancake day was my favourite

Eggs!

Hotel rooms

One afternoonΒ we climbed all over these rocks
It was heaps of fun

But the rock pools here aren’t as exciting as the ones in Australia where you can find lots of life, like sea stars and baby anemones, sponges, mussels, and lichens.

Instead it was just.. BARE πŸ™

Unloading film after swimming and tanning!

Ending this with this awesome pic of a praying mantis
Found it outside our room
It turned its head to me just as I was about to press the button on my camera!
That must surely mean it likes me.
