Today we were moving on, from Selcuk to Fethiye. Iâ€™d booked the coach trip the previous night, so we knew we had to be down at the Otogar at 10am. Setting an earlyâ€™ish alarm, we went for a short run, enjoyed another good breakfast on the roof terrace and then waved goodbye to the friends we made at the ANZ guesthouse. The coach ride consisted of a 1 hour transfer to Aydin on a Dolmus and from there in a large coach to Fethiye, stopping at a number of coastal towns on the way. It was a bit of waste of a beautiful day, again the sun was shining but the weather not too hot. It gave us both a chance to rest our legs though and to catch up on a bit of reading.
When we arrived at Fethiye Otogar we were transferred to a dolmus that took us straight to our place for the night, Artemis Hotel, gratis!! We met our host Ned and he showed us our room.
We hadnâ€™t eaten any lunch, so we walked into town, along the harbour and found somewhere to grab a bite to eat. Michelle had grilled calamari and I bought a kofte. Both were fantastic. Probably quite expensive by Turkish standards but again the total bill for the meal came in at around 30 TLR, just over Â£10.It was quite early when we returned to our room, so we quizzed our host Ned on a couple of matters. Firstly, what to do in Fethiye and secondly, how does one play backgammon. With some instructions downloaded from the internet and then a little instruction from Ned, we managed a couple of games of backgammon before retiring for the night. Just in case the readers were interested in the result: Jamie 2 Michelle 0. (Ned gave me a hiding in the game I played against him though). Weâ€™ll have to buy ourselves a board for our travels I think. Everyone plays it here and it is quite an addictive pastime.
