So many readers of our pages have such a profound love of Fethiye and the surrounding region they have made it their home while others will visit as often as they can – whether that’s twice, three or even four times a year.

But, if your own love affair is from a distance or if COVID-19 has thrown up barriers it’s impossible to cross right now, it may easy to hop on  a plane to your “happy place” as often as you’d like.

That doesn’t mean your love for the region is any less strong though – and we were reminded of that by some lovely words and pictures we received recently from Canada’s Suzanne Rolland.

A love story

Responding to request for albums of pictures from readers of favourite locations and themes, Suzanne writes: “I have completed ten trips from Canada to Turkey and always I am in love with its people, landscape, seaside, food, wine, scenery to the point where I hold the Turkish sun in my hands at sunset on the Fethiye promenade.

“Turkey is the land for me to experiment with new things – like having a glass of Turkish wine during a family trip on a gület; like paragliding at 76 over Oludeniz; like smoking a water pipe; like climbing to the top of the Kas amphitheatre .. all of them were wonderful moments in my life.”

Readers’ albums

The pictures below reflect some of those magic moments for Suzanne – but do you have similar memories of a special place you have visted in Turkey you would like to share with our readers? If so, why not submit them for consideration?

They don’t need to be a particular shape but, to reproduce on the website, they do need to be of a reasonable resolution – perhaps 1mb or more.

The subject is up to you but – like Suzanne – we’d also ask that you include a few details about yourself, what inspired you to take the images and a little bit about them.

Please feel free to submit your album of no more than 15 images and the relevant details to fethiyetimes2017@gmail.com and we’ll do the rest.

We’ll look forward to hearing from you …
