Stuff I Just Gotta Share..

«     »

Thought I’d post a bit about one of my favorite travel spots today, although my first passion is downhill skiing (as opposed to water or cross country skiing, not “uphill” skiing), I do enjoy a bit of Sun, Sea and Sand.

The last summer holiday I had that really rocked was to Olu Deniz in Turkey, this place is just class!

The header on the top of this site is a photo of mine from Buttefly Bay near Olu Deniz. I was there with my wife and a couple of friends and as it was my birthday we decided to do something fun, so we para-glided in to Butterlfy Bay (you can’t get there except by boat, foot or air), spent the night sleeping on the beach (and getting a little drunk), then left by “para-boat” (a little dinghy with a hangglider and big propeller engine on it) the next morning.

It’s a birthday that I’ll remember for a long while, so here’s a few cool photos from Turkey..

First up is a view from the Para-Glider. I’ve left my feet in the shot to show what kind of footwear you shouldn’t use when you go para-gliding, as the takeoff in Olu-Deniz is a bit rough and rocky, so I’d highly recommend something a bit more robust so you don’t end up wrecking your feet on the stones.. 🙂

The second photo is of Olu-Deniz itself from a para-glider of course, my foot seems to have snuck in the photo again on this one..

The next is of one of my other favorite places in Turkey, Pamukkale. This is a must for visiting if you go to Turkey. As you can see from the photo, it’s quite spectacular, not sure who the sexy babe in the photo is tho.. 😉

The last one is just a nice panoramic shot I took while we were travelling.

Oh, obviously these photos are copywright 2005-2007, so if you wanna use em, you really need to ask for my permission..

I’ll normally say yes in return for a link back from your website.


and if you’re looking for a good hotel, we stayed at the Tulip Beach Hotel in Olu-Deniz, it’s about a 30 second walk to the beach..
