Monkey’s “Inadvertent” Turkish Adventure Part 1.

We arrived at our hotel in time for breakfast, which was fortuitous, because after spending almost 10 hours in Lucy’s suitcase, without sustenance other than a small squeeze of Colgate toothpaste, I was a tadge peckish.
I usually have Oat So Simple or Frosties for breakfast, so having cucumber and a huge portion of beef tomato on my plate is quite a novelty, but at least I am certain of having all my 5 a day during my stay before 10 o’clock!
The buffet breakfast is quite extensive, but I have to be honest and say I am not very partial to olives, so although I want to embrace all things Turkish, I will not be having olives on toast as my holiday breakfast of choice.

After breakfast, I took the opportunity to get my bearings, the hotel is beautiful, surrounded by mountains and paragliders, who, I gather, cascade down by us all day long.

We have a small balcony where I can people watch and see when there is a lounger free.

The pool is very tempting, but before I could do anything Lucy had to take me shopping to find me some swimming trunks and a few new clothes as I only had the clothes I had “travelled” in.  It's brilliant because all the clothes in the shops are "designer" so I will be mostly wearing Dolce and Gabbana and carrying my trunks and towel (Yves St. Laurent)  in a Louis Vuitton sports holdall!
