  1. How COOL!! Amazing dancing..... And I already have a headache just from that video! Thanks for your responses!! ( now where did I put those aspirin?)
  2. Well, as the title says, in March this year (2015) we are heading over to a new part of TUrkey for us, Trabzon, to attend a wedding. I would say that it is going to be a " traditional Turkish wedding" however the groom, thoroughly Turkish, is marrying a Russian bride, so I don't know just how traditional it might be. But I do need somebody's help with regards to a number of things. 1/ what should we take as. A gift, is it generally like an ENglish wedding where you would bring something lovely for their new home together or is there some deep seated custom which we should pay heed to? 2/
  3. Aaaaaw, stay strong for him little crescent, the time will fly by!:)Then you will be together forever!

  7. I know!!!Thanks KEN!Huge smiles because it seems I'm moving in the right direction!!!:)After three years I have realised that what is missing for me over here is a beach!I've been spoiled in the UK because I've lived in Newquay, Cornwall for over twenty years where there are seven beaches and beautiful sands........ Turkey is idyllic and it seems almost churlish of me to ask for a beach aswell as all it's other lovlieness!;)But anyway- I've done it now, and the answers are steering me where I had already thought!Ooh can't wait till Friday!

  10. Good morning my good people of TC.I NEED YOUR HELP!After years sailing around much of Turkeys beautiful coastline, I realise that I need some advice and some of your inspirations. I am looking for a beach. A stretch of golden soft sand which gently shelves into the clear,turquoise waters..... ( don't say the Maldives! )So come on please, pull out your holiday snaps and steer me in the right direction of this dream.In anticipation, Lin x
  11. A vignette is like a pass or a permit that you have to buy as you are entering or are in a particular country in order to use their roads. I suppose like a temporary rd tax cause they can last from a week to three months ( more ) so this too should be specified when you buy, ( as best you can cause they all speak foreign everywhere!) There is a big sign which shows a sign showing money, so on one occasion we waited to be asked, like a toll, for the payment. Nobody asked so we drove on and at the next " toll booth " got fined ( a lot of euros !!! This was in Austria, we hadn't bought
  12. From a recent road trip.France. The French are rude - if you leave a space ( for safety ) between yourself and the car infront, guaranteed some French man will come along and fill it up - from over or undertaking - they don't mind.The Germans are very well behaved, they stick to the speed limit, they in fact don't appear to do anything they shouldn't. Apparently they are great at doing what they are told!The Swiss appear to like to crash - A LOT - wether this is because of a lack of things to do when there is no snow to ski on. They also appear to take great pleasure in putting holes in things
