TURKEY: Day out on the sea lookbook
Mondays can be busy and overwhelming to the senses. You want to start the week off right and avoid distractions… find some flow for your work. So in honor of busy Mondays everywhere, today I bring you a wordless lookbook reminiscing some warm summer days!
But before you start, just a quick explanation. Turkey has a huge coastline! The north, west, and south all border major seas. One of the best summer day trips is renting a boat with friends and taking a small tour (about 5 stops) along parts of the coast. This tour was with Teos Tur out of Sağıcık, a city on the southwest coast.
After meeting our captain about 9 am, we headed out for the day stopping along different coves and enjoying the landscapes. At each stop there is time to swim, explore, sunbath, and snorkel. Definitely bring your water games, snorkeling gear, and floaties!
The captain provides tea and coffee, but we bring any food we would like to eat throughout the day. Our group decided to only do lunch together (although the Turkish way would be to do breakfast and lunch). Our friends brought kofte(meatballs) and kebabs from the local butcher that the captain grilled for us when we were ready. Everyone brought a dish to share: bread, fruit, salad, etc. It also happened to be just before Jason’s birthday this year. We brought a cake to celebrate. Nothing fancy, but it is always fun to have a mid-day meal in your swimsuit between the dips in the sea!
Enjoy our day on the Aegean sea! (P.S.- If you like this, then you will love listening in to our podcast episode about our sailing trip along the Mediterranean coast!)
