Antalya In A Week

I’m back in Mersin, refreshed after a wonderful week in Antalya. I was planning to return earlier to Mersin but extended my stay. I wish I could have stayed much longer.

The hospitality shown by Umut, Beysun and Yasemin, the historical sights, the weather, the setting, the sophistication, the relaxation, the trip to Sivasli; it was all fantastic.

Umut, my former Mersin flatmate, is an Assistant Manager at Laura Shopping Centre’s Migros, part of Turkey’s largest supermarket chain, owned by Turkey’s largest company, Koc Holding.

Beysun,Umut’s wife, works as an educator at a tourism school owned by MNG, another large Turkish company.

Yasemin, Umut’s and Beysun’s friend from their High School days in Alanya is a Sales Executive at Kervansaray Hotels, owned by International Holiday Courts. She works at their head office, located in the Lara, Antalya hotel.

I will write lots more and post many photos when I have time in the next few days.
