Turkish Delight

Hello! I'm back from my holiday in Turkey did you miss me? Well I certainly missed you!

While I was away for 9 days I was challenged to not use any of the following: my iPhone, laptop, Internet, TV, Facebook or Blogspot...pretty much no technology but with the exception of my trusty camera. Just listing all those things makes me sound like some pathetic, needy cyber-gadget-junkie hmmm...I rather like that term....in fact as of here and now I officially came up with that term! Boom! You laugh but I am such a geek I am constantly linked up to one my gadgets at any given time it's so bad. You know what?  I didn't miss any of it, we were so busy on adventures, I kicked back wrote in my diary and finished the rest of the Hunger Games trilogy...which I am now sad about because those books had me hooked.

Jonathan and I stayed in the beautiful land that is Fethiye in Turkey, as you can see it's a magical place with mountains and stunning beaches.

That outfit was sponsored by Primark ha ha

The weather was insane! Sunny and hot everyday.
We were very lucky! and a holiday packing first for me. I wore every single thing I packed in my suitcase!
*cue the fanfare sound effect*
Which is quite remarkable considering us girls always pack way too much stuff for our holiday bearing in mind that "just incase" outfit. I'm glad I didn't pack any high heels but opted for my new wedges from work because the roads in Turkey were very rocky and un even. 


Milkshakes are great
