    Surreal Experiences

    Nowhere better than Turkey for a surreal experience! We were burgled at our (then) holiday home in Gumusluk about 7 or 8 years ago. Been out to a restaurant, left no lights on. Tourist-type stuff all over the garden and patio. Returned to find the back door forced and - thankfully - a fairly...

    Experiences with Thomas Cook Airlines?

    They have a non-stop from Bodrum to Gatwick , but the hours are odd, such as leaving at 2:40am and landing at 4:50am. Plus, their baggage requirements seem pretty draconian. I realize they are a low budget operation, but I wondered how often they get delayed or canceled. Some other alternatives...
