#MDFV2015: Bozburun, Turkey

Our second full day on the Gulet was set to be just as crammed with fun as the previous day. It also meant that despite waking in Turkey, we would be going to sleep in Greece.

Our day started at 6:30 am for morning tea followed by yoga on the front deck and then a healthy, traditional breakfast.

We departed to Bozburun, where we were to go through Passport Control in order for us to get into Greek waters, and of course, we spent the time relaxing and sunbathing.

Once we reached Bozburun, we went to the Passport Control office, which was pretty quick. Being British and part of the EU meant that we didn’t have to have a visa to travel like some of the guests and crew.

We then had some free time to wander the harbour.

There were some beautiful little shops that we visited. I even got the children some gifts. The older three had handmade bracelets, and for Zachary I bought a traditional Turkish towel (which he uses as a blankie).

Lunch today was a special treat! We were to be cooked a traditional Turkish meal, in a Turkish home by an amazing Turkish lady that had invited us all for lunch!

The food was absolutely amazing. I wasn’t too keen on the Turkish coffee, it was a little too sharp for my liking, but I could have eaten the meal every day!

When lunch was over, we walked back through the village to the harbour. As we did so, there was a call to prayer.

Once we all got back to the gulet, it was time to depart to Symi.

Around 3pm, we anchored up in Symi Kayadibi, which is a little cove just a short sail from Symi Harbour, as we had to wait until we were able to dock there.

After afternoon tea, we did some circuits before we departed to Symi.


Once we had docked in Symi, we had some free time before and after dinner where we got to wander around the shops, or spend some time in the local bars!

Tomorrow, we have a walking tour of this beautiful island!!
