Made it to our apartment in Turkey flying with Turkish Airlines.2 flights -London to Istanbul, Istanbul - Izmir were pretty uncomfortable with my leg in a cast but what a god send to be able to use the special assistance staff wheeling me about in a wheelchair through Ďsecretí passport controls and security checks away from the normal people. Canít fault those staff for efficiency at both Heathrow and Istanbul/Izmir.

Weíre flying EasyJet on the way home direct which Iím a little reticent about.

Was there no direct flights to Bodrum BJV? or was it just cheaper to go two journeys?

Anyway I'm sure the beverages are flowing nicely. Where in Turkey are you. I stayed between Bodrum and Izmir

The holiday season starts this Saturday so the choice of flights werenít that available. Generally the Turkish Airlines flight through Istanbul is not too expensive but the overall journey takes ages. Return is direct from izmir.

We are coming back the end of May direct to Bodrum. The good news is that more people are coming out to Turkey after a pretty barren couple of years. Not sure how long that will last with that rocket Erdogan in charge!

We are in Kusadasi, an hour from Izmir and about an hour and a half from Bodrum. Iíve already reserved a seat in our Ďlocalí for the football on Friday. Last time I was there we beat FGR away on the big screen. The people who were watching were questioning if it was always that bad! I said no, sometimes itís worse!

Canít beat an Efes or two in a frozen glass by the sea! I love it.

It is filmed about 16 miles from us, my car was in one of the episodes as I was driving through Bridport, we saw them filming but thought nothing more of it until we saw our car.

The wife did spot David Tennant and had a moist moment!

Absolutely. A nice temperature hike of 20C too I'd imagine. I was last out there in October 2016 but missed last year. Was at Didim but have been to Gulluk previously. It was about 40C when we arrived at 11pm and sticky. Love going to local restaurants that basically turn into a Football Fanzone for a few hours.  Enjoy your Efes BO  Pint

Pretty sure I asked this on a thread previously but i'm taking the wife to Valencia tomorrow for her birthday. Luckily Spain won the group and are playing Sunday afternoon rather than Saturday night when we are out for dinner!

Unfortunately my walking is still not great after my achilles surgery so I can't walk around as much as I would like but for those that have been to Valencia and local hints and tips, mainly food and drink wise I guess. Is there likely to be a big screen/square setup for the football?
