  • Christmas Past
    on Dec 20, 2016 in Bodrum in 1997
    In September I met up with Ken Jennings, one half of the Gülsüm Balcony Project. He handed me a small piece recent history; a Christmas Greeting letter I'd sent out in 1997.  I hadn't kept a copy and could hardy remember writing it, but i...
  • Olive oil
    on Dec 13, 2016 in olive oil rules
    "Good oil like good wine is a gift from the gods. The grape and the olive are among the priceless benefactions of the soil and were destined, each in its way, to promote the welfare of man"I agree entirely with the words of 19th century horticultural...
  • Christmas presents
    on Dec 5, 2016 in Lignum Design Bodrum
    It's that time of year again, not my favourite I admit and this year I have little enthusiasm for Christmas shopping. My email inbox is already full of pressure to spend money.  Wouldn't it be nice if everyone ignored this big business push to e...
  • Vine Harvest Festival 2016
    on Sep 5, 2016
    I was expecting great things from the Second Vine Harvest Festival in Mumcular. This year's organisation had lots of support and for once, it was advertised well in advance - several months as opposed to the usual several days - but it turned out to...
  • Turkey Tales
    on Sep 2, 2016
    I'd like to recommend this collection of 16 poems to anyone who has loved and left Bodrum, is still living on the Bodrum Peninsula or has an idea in their head that one day they too will sit on a bougainvillea strewn terrace, sipping iced rakı and g...
  • Who would wish to be anywhere else?
    on Aug 30, 2016
    My first two years in Bodrum were spent sailing the Gulf of Gökova.  Thirty five years later, there is still no better place to be. Crystal clear water that flickers all shades of turquoise as the sun hits. Unspoilt bays Grilled...
  • Stretched
    on Aug 26, 2016
      I haven't completely given in to sloth during these hot months, I am still paying twice weekly visits to The Pilates Studio in Avenue Bodrum to be stretched out on the rack  reformer machine.  I am a late convert to Pilates, hav...
  • Woof Woof
    on Aug 22, 2016 in Dog show in Bodrum
    Sunday could have been a very busy day. Mumcular, our nearest town, was hosting its first traditional Bull Wrestling Festival (just how the first ever event can be classed as "traditional" is beyond me, but the semantics of Turkish has tripped me up...
  • Half and Half
    on Aug 15, 2016
    It's been hot, mind-meltingly hot.  The kind of heat that gives you wet patches on top of your shoulders where the sweat has dripped off your ear lobes.  The sort of hot that makes it imperative that you wring out any bra with a hint of pad...
  • Silent Witness or CSI
    on Aug 14, 2016
    You will have gathered by now that I live in the countryside in the Summer;  it's pretty cut off and folk come out to visit in the daytime but I rarely have company in the evening so I've been catching up with the UK and US TV series that I've m...
