Kadriye Hotel

After the breakfast I stood here on the balcony, I thinking of what wonderful days we have had down here. Now it's just one day left. First we go for a lunch just outside Antalya. Then we have 5 hours of free time and we will take a walk in Antalya old town.


Kadriye Hotel

Our second last hotel in the golf area at Kadriye, a few kilometers east of Antalya.


Fish restaurant Antalya

Lunch with water view, actually, we had the Mediterranean Sea under our feet. The restaurant's specialty was fish dishes.

Airflight home to Sweden

On the plane on the way back home after a week of adventures.

I hope this travel narrative will inspire you to do a similar trip in Turkey. Unfortunately, it has become very unsettled in Turkey in recent years, but I'm sure it calm down with time.

The END
