A Life in Göcek

Hi, my name is Val Dickson and my husband Pete and I have been coming to Göcek on holiday since 2001.  We have decided to spend a considerable part of the year in this lovely town and these short articles are a record of some of our experiences in moving from holidaymakers to residents. I can be contacted via email at valandpete.dickson@gmail.com or by mobile on 0539 465 5709

From time to time I will add links on a separate web page of things I think may be

Not quite so hot this week, thank goodness, but the forecast shows temperatures increasing.

We woke the other night to the bed shaking – yes, an earth tremor.   Apparently there was a bad quake in Kos (6.7) but by the time it reached Gocek, it was only a slight shake – thank goodness.

I found this interesting article in Fethiye Times this week about this lovely town.   Well worth a read. CLICK HERE.

For the last few months, those of us traveling to the UK have had the frustration of having to manage on board planes without our Kindles, i-Pads etc. as new rules forebade any electronic items (apart from phones) being taken into the cabin.   This article in Hurriyet Daily News (CLICK HERE)  seems to indicate that this rule is being dropped….but doesn’t give a date yet.   We go back to the UK next Friday for a short break, so I am keeping my fingers crossed.

Next week will be Life in Wellington again – the temperatures in the UK look dire – hope they improve.    Still, Waitrose awaits!!!
