    Antalya storms

    Yes there is a low pressure system over the Mediterranean between Libya and southern Greece moving eastwards. It will move east north east to cross the coast of Turkey. High winds, heavy rain and the possibility of waterspouts/tornadoes are forecast.

    How to end communication

    There are as many ways to block a phone number from calling you as there are makes and models of phone. If you do a google search on "block someone from calling my ********* phone" you will find lots of answers. Insert the make and model of your phone and delete the asterisks. Hope this is successful for you.

    Hi Deandreo, welcome to Turkey Central. Interesting question but I think we need more information before anybody can make an educated answer. 1. Have you actually met in real life or is this an internet love story? 2. How long have you known each other? 3. How much time have you spent actually in each other's company? 4. What, in your mind, is the best outcome for this situation?

    You need a current driving licence and usually some form of photo id of the licence does not have a photo.

    Relocating from Alanya to Kas

    Hi Sean, as Ken says I live in Kaş, well to be accurate, in a village a couple of kilometers inland behind what is known as the sleeping giant (uyan dev, the cliff overlooking Kaş), but pretty much all my shopping and socialising is down in Kaş town. The winters are slowly becoming less dead during the day because a few more people stay in Kaş all year round but evenings are very quiet unless you're attending one of the organised events. We have a free cinema that shows international films with Turkish subtitles and Turkish films often with English subtitles. I can attest to the Kaş trance effect, I've seen it happen to Ken quite a few times and his end of a conversation dwindles to a complete stop quite often. Kaş is surrounded on all sides by nature, the south side being the sea. In the cooler months there are many walking trips organised around parts of the Lycian Way or particular areas of historical significance. You should come for a few days in late September or October and have a look around.

    Ferries from Meis to kas

    The website for Kahramanlar Turizm ferry is and for the Meis Express ferry is, tickets can be booked and paid for online on both. It would be a good idea to chech the availability of the Meis - Kaş option. Yes it would be nice to catch up over a drink.

    Yes, they run almost every day In summer, there are also Greek boats coming to Kaş. I'll find out the other info.
  10. Hi SneeSnee, welcome to Turkey Central. The areas that you are interested in are well populated and the dogs are liable to be friendly . Most goatherders with big dogs will be up in the higher areas (yayla or high pastures) at this time of years, it's cooler and there is more for the goats to eat. I would advise you to carry a mobile phone and have someone local that you can call in an emergency but I think you will probably find that everyone you meet is friendly. Although at the moment we are not having particularly hot weather it is likely to become a lot warmer soon, daytime temperatures could be reaching 45C so make sure you carry plenty of water and wear a hat. Hope you have a great time and interesting walks.
  11. Yes of course, you're right, it'll be the same as the phone end of the cable that goes into the wall socket. Easily obtainable here, you get one included in a modem setup box.
  12. H Pete. As far as I remember the plug on a BT phone is a bit bigger than here and with the release clip on the side. Here's a pic of a Turkish plug, 1cm wide with the clip on the top. I think the UK plug to connect the handset to the dialing unit is similar to this but not the one to go in the wall socket.

    Americans traveling in Turkey

    Hi Thomas and welcome to Turkey Central. I know a number of Americans living here, in fact the owner of this site is one of them and will welcome you with open arms when he reads your post. Aside from the usual advice that we used to get there is nothing to worry about. Turkey and the Turkish people are as welcoming as ever. Hope you have a great time when you get here.
