I'd been meaning to do this twice since it restarted this year but something else always came up so today was the day - no excuses! Everyone had prearranged to meet at the main Mosque in Fethiye at 10:45; and so we all were - with bells on! Taking up one full dolmuş we all piled in and headed up to our starting point in Hisarönü for light refreshments pre endeavour. Approx 1 hr later, Çay & bira (I won't go into that) out of the way we set off along paths unknown - at least unknown to me! Our group consisted of different ages, nationalities and general interests but one thing was certain, we were all there for the same things - exercise, relaxation and to meet new and interesting people; and that we did! Chris directed the way as we were led up hill and down dale and through the wonderful area known as Kayaköy valley. If you love history and/or nature this for you. As a keen photographer I found it near impossible not to keep stopping for photos. For every one photo I took I could have easily taken ten more. Around every bend there is something new, be it shoots from wild flowers, (Note to self: must go back when they are in flower) old ruins; from which era is anyone's guess, small grave yards dotted along the road - some seem to have had escapees, and finally the wonderful 'ghost' town which is Kayaköy. Unfortunately we didn't get to explore this wonderful and sad piece of history this time but it is well and truly on my 'sooner rather than later' list. So there you have it. Approx 4 hrs of walking, talking and wonderment which by now shouldn't really surprise me in this wonderful country. A light lunch at Mavi Kelebek (Blue Butterfly) and then a dolmuş back home. Once again many thanks to Ian for organising this wonderful walk and I look forward to next weeks adventure. For anyone else interested in joining the 'Wacky Walkers', contact Ian at Kismet bar or via his facebook page. The group is open to all ages & paces - new members very welcome, sturdy foot ware recommended.
