We’re Marianne and Chris, a married couple from the UK. After some life changing events we decided that life was just too short. We sold all our belongings, bought an old Campervan & rented our house to travel full time. The aim is to attempt to visit every country in the world in either our van or with a backpack. We started videoing our travels for our family and then decided it was a wonderful way to document and share our adventures.

Our latest adventure started in January 2020 when we left the UK in an attempt to drive our van all the way around the world. Let the adventures continue.

💬 Comments on the video

My wife who is Turkish made Menemen for my parents the first time they visited us here in Antalya.

Being slightly old, and typical English, used to Fish and Chips and roast dinners, they both looked at the red eggy mixture. I knew what they were thinking, it wasn't to their taste at all.

Then my wife produced home made bread, hot, straight from the oven and showed them how to dip the bread into the mixture... Oh my God... They wanted it every day after that 😅

Went to Patara in 2019 and planned to go again in 2020 but ... The beach is wonderful, as are the ruins. I walked around the ruins at 8am one morning, just beautiful: ancient monuments, goats and a sense of solitude.

What a fantastic day. How did your back pull up after the sand dunes?
I could not help but think how blessed you have been to be in Turkey all this time.

Have you done theater before Marianne, you look like a pro! Chris is your back okay after climbing those dunes and hills? That was quite a work-out. Yes, definitely a beautiful sandy beach. See any surfers? Have a good week you two.

What a lovely episode, a real!! theatrical one in the end. :-) take care. by the way, Patara has been famous with its lighthouse; second to the one in Alexandria in ancient times. and it had been a Roman military garrison too. just some notes. :-)

It is a sedimentary rock called "breccia." If the particles were rounded it would be a conglomerate.

Great video. Love the menemen and the acting 👍Patara visitor centre definitely different to when I last went but those views and the dunes are the same. Just Wonderful. Agree with an earlier comment re 'refikas kitchen' She is so enthusiastic and has some great videos/recipies on you tube, plus fab views of Istanbul 👍. Hope you get that mattress sorted soon. Anything is possible in Turkey 😉😁

Ah at last you’re in Patara - birthplace of Santa. What an awesome beach. Have to say but it’s just like the Golden Beach in Karpaz, North Cyprus. Best of both worlds in Patara: sun sea and beach and old ruins for the history lovers. Best beach in Turkey 👍👍👍 take care and stay safe xxx
