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

Another very busy week in Gocek with lots of Turkish visitors.  However, it should quieten down next week as the children go back to school after the long summer break.

The days are still quite warm but the nights are definitely getting cooler so it’s easier to sleep.

For those of you who enjoy classical music, there is a festival coming up in Fethiye next week.   (CLICK HERE). The sunset concerts on Babdag sound particularly interesting.

There is an interesting article in Daily Sabah about the city of Antalya (CLICK HERE).  I found it particularly useful as we are off to Hotel Canada in Cirali for our third visit this year.  Well, we have to take a holiday sometime!   Just in case any of my new readers haven’t seen their website, the link is (CLICK HERE).

We went for a drive up to Club Marina the other day.   Looking out over the bay, it was fascinating to see just how many boats are still moored around the coast.    No wonder there have been so many people in town recently, loading up shopping trolleys.
