Datca

TURKEY TRAVEL LOG: Orhaniye, Dirsek, Monastery of Panormitis…

IMG_5340Hello Hello! We got back from Turkey last night and we’re already feeling the cold!  I'm going to be posting a little bit about each place we sailed through over the next two weeks and I have over 2000 photo's to sift through and edit so I'll be sticking them up too.

I also have some very exciting news about the book- tomorrow is the first official photoshoot complete with food stylist and photographer!  We have spent most of the day preparing for tomorrow and all I can say is it's a stark contrast, going from tanning in 30 degree heat to prowling through boxes of peppers for the most photogenic, within hours of stepping off a plane!  We have been cooking all day and the first shots will be taken tomorrow morning, so I'm hoping to feature a few behind the scenes pics later this week.

For now here is my travel log day 1 to 3!  The pictures are more foodie related as the days progress so stay tuned and Enjoy!
