Holiday !! Turkey Day 1 & 2

So my friend invited me to go on holiday with him to his Villa in Turkey.

image

How could I say no?

So before we new it holiday time was here. Our bags were packed and we were ready to go.

( Me , Nick & Alex.)

Our flight made good time and when we touched the tarmac our bags nearly beat us off the plane.

image

We were getting picked up buy a taxi guy called Yusif . Two minutes in and I wondered if he was training for some sort of rally. As we crossed from one lane to the other the scenery was stunning and that was threw the night.

Alex & I ended up staying awake the whole night watching the sun rise from a balcony over looking our pool.

Day 1 .

So after a quick 30 min snooze it was time to walk to the local village time to get some lunch.

As you can see around the Villa is beautiful. Every house is different and they all fit together like a patchwork.
Every garden has some sort of food growing in it and chickens are roaming everywhere.

image

15min down the road and we were heading to the Cadianda . A lovely relaxed bar / restaurant.

image

I decided to try the Turkish pizza .

image

It was tasty . Seriously tasty. Beef ,cheese ,mushroom and egg. I thought egg would be strange . I was wrong . It held it all together.

Now it was time to head back to the Villa so Alex & I could catch up on our sleep.

We had came across a learn Turkish book. It had a very random section.

This as you could imagine provided us with a great laugh as I hope it does for you reading.

After my well needed nap it was time to head to Eddie’s bar. 2 min walk from our Villa.

image

image

They had obviously heard we were coming as the kegs came rolling in…

image

image

Eddies really is a friendly place. You pick that up in the atmosphere strait away.
We Decided to give the menu a look as it was definitely time to eat and we were comfortable. We did not expect the food to be as good as it was. Usually something’s got to give.

Nick & I were very jealous of Alex’s vegetarian stir fry . The flavours coming out the pot were beautiful.

That night end with a few white Russians in the Villa and a game of top trumps…

Day 2.

I decided that I would get up early and have a wander . Take some photos

image

Here are some of the shots I’ve taken around the village close to the Villa.

We spent most of the day buy the pool falling off liylos and playing water polo.

We popped into the village to get some meat for a BBQ and ended up back at Eddies .

image

It was not long before we were talked into taking part in the quiz night.

image

We Ended Up having sever drinks….and then some . It was a fun time the pub was bizzy and the atmosphere once again was great.

My Finger..

So about two years ago I was having a game of basketball with a few friends witch went south quick.
While playing some D (defence) my friend got my finger caught as he ran past. CRACK ! My finger was now bending the wrong way.

image

Of to the walk in center . The nurse tried to straiten my finger for the X ray but couldn’t. Then one of them had a genius idea of forcing it strait. Luckily for me a phone call came threw from a Doctor Who was a expert . He told them not to touch it and just to strap it. I found out later that because of the way my finger had broken & shattered if they forced it I would have had to have it amputated.

image

So surgery it was for me. I was under local anesthetic and awake threw out. The surgery was supposed to take 45 minutes . I was in nearly 3 hours. The pain was intense I even had a doctor waiting beside me prepared to knock me out with drugs if I needed it.

image

So the result is I have a finger that is completely made out of metal . Witch people love to squeeze and feel for the screws.

image

Now though I have some difficulties. I don’t have a lot of feeling obviously been some nerve damage. So I drop things a lot . No I phone for me ! I have a HTC One because it’s the only phone I can drop without breaking however I have replaced it 4 times threw insurance.
I am a chef and there is some things I can’t do. Chop tomato’s is a nightmare because I can’t hold it securely.
I struggle also with money and fiddly things. Once being accused of being drunk until I showed my scar .

It’s frustrating because people assume the worst .

Money.

image

Interesting because I’m sure he ain’t doing too bad.

I’ve got to say money for me is the vain of my life. Have a think about things that you might want or dream for …. They cost money right. For me…

* House for me & kids.
* Car.
* Holiday.
*Gym.

They say money can’t buy happiness but I’m pretty sure I would be if I could tick this list off.

What do you think? Let us know in the comment section.

Note To Self.

image

How hard is this though? I suppose when it comes to my “baggage” I’m going to carry that for a long time.
I feel a little shut off emotionally of late to do with relationships.
I suppose I think there domed to fail before I start . Using past as reference.
I juggle a lot week to week and I wonder were I could fit one in as well.
Just feel like I can’t light the fire under me.

Anyone else felt or feel like this? Any tips for me? Let me no in the comment section as ever.
