I'm back...

We actually got back from Turkey on Saturday evening. We had a great vacation, but one thing is for sure, we are never going to an all-inclusive again... well at least not in Turkey. The food was the same everyday, and after a few days that just gets boring. We thought it would be easier having all inclusive with Jonas, so that we didn't have to go out every night looking for a place to eat. But let's face it, there are restaurants and bazaars everywhere in Alanya. We ended up eating out 3 evenings out the 7, just because we needed something different. I'm not saying every all inclusive is bad, because the first and only time I had been to at all inclusive before was back in 2010, when we went to a wedding in Punta Cana, and that was amazing, but then again it had 7 ala carte restaurants and a big buffet, so it wasn't the same everyday.

Nonetheless we had a good vacation, we spent a lot of time by the pool, which is a bit boring, but Jonas loved it. We usually started in the morning, and had chairs in the shade, and around 11 am the sun came to those chairs, well then Jonas would like to have break, so him and Frank usually took a break and I got to tan a bit. 

We didn't get to see much, but we got to relax. I also got to try the Hamam (Turkish bath), which I really enjoyed, but since I haven't got my pictures from the camera yet, you will have to do with just the one of Jonas in the pool doing a handstand.... well I didn't a handstand, and came up, he told me I looked like a whale... honestly a WHALE, couldn't he have said a mermaid or a dolphin, but a WHALE come on! I guess you should hear the truth from kids... but Jonas said he also could do a handstand... look at the that and he has the nerve to call me a whale:)

He loved being in the pool, and as the days went by he got more and more brave, which meant having to keep an eye on him at all times! The first few days he would happily stay in the baby pool and only go in the big pool with us... but oh boy in the end he would try to sneak over into the big pool if we were looking away for a second....

You will get more pictures later, now I have to fold the last laundry, I got a bit of a setback yesterday then the dryer suddenly broke down, of course it will do that when you got 3 suitcases full of dirty clothes! So we had to go get a new one, but it delayed my laundry! Though now it's only folding left!


  1. That's horrible about the food - the same thing every day would drive me crazy. I can't wait to hear about your trip and see all your pictures!

  2. Well I don't know about Turkey but I've been to all inclusives in Mexico and the food was amazing. Still, what a bummer!


Your comments makes me smile:)
