Fethiye is a small town in the south of Turkey, on the Mediterranean coast. We arrived after a five-hour bus ride from Selcuk, to Aydin then Fethiye. The good buses in Turkey have comfy seats, TVs on the back of every seat and a dude serving you tea and coffee every hour.

Anyone who ever tells you that Nice is not nice has truly not experienced this jewel of a town. The beaches shimmer with brown bodies strewn across fist-sized smooth rocks and the town itself is full of narrow alleys and market stalls with some of the friendliest people we’ve come across. Over three days and nights we were barely exposed to the so-called “French” attitude we’ve all heard about.
