  1. BREAKING NEWS ... The new strain of Coronavirus has been detected in 15 people that recently travelled from the UK. Turkey bans entry of all travellers from the UK due to detection of the new mutation, the Health Minister says ... x ANGELA IN SIDE x ...
  2. Flights from Gatwick to Antalya return in April and May 2021 are amazingly cheap right now, e.g. from 19th April to 10th May (3 weeks) @ £82 return OR 19th April to 3rd May 2021 (2 weeks) is the same price @ £82 return. The transfer from Antalya Airport to Side takes 50-minutes but only costs £9 per person each way from the company I use ... NOTE: More than double that amount if you don't book and take one of the airport taxis standing by. I have lived in Side (pronounced See-Day) for 14 years, so contact me if I can help further. x Angela x

  5. Vicenza is a city in the Veneto region of northeast Italy. It’s known for the elegant buildings designed by the 16th-century architect Andrea Palladio. These include the Palladian Basilica and the Palazzo Chiericati, now home to an art gallery. Nearby, also by Palladio, the Teatro Olimpico replicates a classic outdoor theater, indoors. On the outskirts of town, the hilltop Villa La Rotonda has 4 identical facades. Lots to do in Vicenza ... see here ... https://www.getyourguide.com/s/?q=Vicenza&lc=l32445&date_from=2019-11-21&date_to=2019-11-22&customerSearch=1&
  6. I own 2 x apartments on Mirage Residence complex in Side, Turkey ... one I live in ... the other one I rent to a Brain Surgeon/Doctor from the local Bilgi Hospital. He gets paid the same amount as a secretary would get in England and cannot afford to buy a property of his own. He would like to buy the one he is renting from me but that is £65,000 with the furniture included and he only has managed to save up £35,000 ... sad but true ... and his advice ... go to another country where you WILL get paid what you are worth!!! These are the average wages for various types of

  9. THE 26th ASPENDOS INTERNATIONAL OPERA AND BALLET FESTIVAL WILL TAKE PLACE in September this year ... from 1st to 18th September. It is a unique occasion to enjoy the world's best classic repertoire in likewise best-preserved ancient amphitheatre. The festival was established on a national level in 1994 and acquired international status in 1998. In 2003, the British Independent Newspaper gave it the 5th position among the world's ten most respectable festivals of that kind. One of the reasons for its popularity is the unique location. Aspendos amphitheatre was constructed back in the 2nd cen
  10. I have been absent because I ended up in hospital last week after being poisoned. I mistakenly ate a load of daffodil bulbs instead of shallots. I'm not happy, It's not too bad though the doctors have told me I should be out for spring. OR IN TURKISH ...Devamsızım nkü zehirlendikten sonra geçen hafta hastanede kaldım. Yanlışlıkla arpacık yerine bir sürü nergis ampul yedim. Mutlu değilim, doktorlar bahar için dışarı çıkmam gerektiğini söylemelerine rağmen çok da kötü değil.
  11. Is there nobody interested in buying these children's books? I will be in Side on Thursday for 3 months. Collection only. Thank you. x Angela x
  12. Yes you do a great service to us foreigners living in Turkey and deserve all the recognition you can get for that help. Thank you Martin, from the bottom of my heart. x Angela in Side x
  13. Yes, Konyaalti may be a nice looking beach but I would never venture there again because the last time I swam there, both my feet were bleeding badly from the the very sharp shingle ... no wonder they were selling Jelly Shoes everywhere. And I was not the only one who had bleeding feet. There was a small child about 3 or 4 years old crying her eyes out whilst her mother attempted to console her. Blood all over the place and trails of it all along Konyaalti Beach. It seems odd to me that only a 50-minutes drive from there is Side (pronounced See-Day) which has the 2nd longest soft sandy bea
  14. According to the Oxford English Dictionary the term "humpty dumpty" referred to a drink of brandy boiled with ale in the 17th century. The riddle probably exploited, for misdirection, the fact that "humpty dumpty" was also eighteenth-century reduplicative slang for a short and clumsy person. The riddle may depend on the assumption that, whereas a clumsy person falling off a wall might not be irreparably damaged, an egg would be. The rhyme is no longer posed as a riddle, since the answer is now so well known. Here is the text of Humpty, Dumpty - - French style - - "Un petit d'un petit
  15. I have found a few kiddies books here in England which I will be taking with me to Side when I fly there on 28th February and I'll be in Side until 26th May.

  17. Ah thanks Diane ... what a sweety you are with such nice comments to me ... much appreciated. I own 3 x properties in Side (pronounced See-Day) and am in the process of buying a 4th, so you are more than welcome to come and stay for free for a week or two ... just pay say £100 for the 1 or 2 weeks which would cover the cost of the cleaning, laundry, electricity and water that you would use during that time ... I will be in Side from 5th September until 30th November this year ... one I live in, one I rent out, one I am selling for £40,000 including all the furniture, 2 bedrooms, 2 balconies,

  19. Ah ha Diane! So ... There is a very famous poem by an anonymous writer who explains that different people come into our lives to serve different purposes. Many of us can meet people in our lives and we might not be aware of why they have arrived or left, and it could take us a while to realise this. People who have read this poem find it inspiring because it ultimately means that even if someone has left our life, it can have a positive influence in our lives and not one that is only negative. Below is the poem below. After you’ve read this, pick a few different people in your life and fin

  22. A similar question was asked on another Forum and this was the reply ... QUOTE: Hi, We had the same problem as foreigner living here, so you are not alone Our kid is going to primary school the second year, she passed her first year in our country home but for this year we decided to send her to Turkish school, based on advice I got if someone decides to stay for a long term in another country it is better to send kids to the same education system as locals go but not isolated. and you can continue teaching your native language (English in your case) at home--saman ...

  23. We choose not to have a car in Turkey ... I drove here once ... never again! The drivers around here are completely mad. They don't stop at red lights ever... a few weeks ago I saw a Turkish guy, middle-aged in a big 4 x 4 going around the big roundabout backwards! So, no driving for us two in Turkey thank you very much... Yes we know that Mike could have gone to a Greek island instead of the UK but he had a free place to stay at a friend's house near Gatwick and wanted to buy some English food to take back ... so the trip was not for nothing really, although of course he would have pr
  24. This has just reminded me of why I no longer have a Residency Permit and prefer to have an E-Visa as we now have 3 months in Turkey, 3 months in UK, 3 months in Turkey and 3 months in the UK. This is what happened to me ... I held a Residency Permit for 10 years, so I went to the government building to ask for a Forever RP which you get virtually for free after the 10 years is up. They looked on their computer and said NO! I asked ... Why not? ... and was told that I had been out of the country TWO DAYS TOO MUCH IN 10 YEARS!!!!! I cannot tell you what words I used but they were not ni
