Hi everyone,
I didn't want to hijack someone else's thread so I started a new one...
My wife and I recently bought a Villa in Yalikavak, which we think is a really cool and beautiful place to be.
We looked at many places in many countries i.e. Spain, Croatia etc, but landed in Yalikavak about 300 meters from the sea...:9:
We are back in Oslo now...yes it is cold and rainy right now...but, will be back in Yalikavak in September 19 for a couple of weeks to get everything sorted and make a start with the house, so much to do...
We are both IT professionals (not geeks I might add) I work in a Museum and Hana works in a University.
I was wondering if there is anywhere that has a squash court, a hotel or something? and if there is anyone interested in playing during 19 Sept-5 Oct once or twice maybe? would be real cool.
I am also a bit of a musician and was thinking of building a little studio at the back of our house, when I get around to it (time & money...:-(...), I have noticed that there are one or two musicians on this board, I have played as Reggae guitarist for many years in the late 70's during the punk era...

But, anyway, nice to meet all you good folks on here, lots of good info and cools vibes around here.
If anyone's wondering about my user-name...yes I am from Liverpool and Toxteth was the district I grew up in, during the fifties and sixties it was like "New Orleans" music was everywhere, Merseybeat was on the streets and so was I, albeit just 11 years of age at the time, I remember it as though it was yesterday. Toxteth now is justa pale shadow of its former self, shame really it was the catalyst for a lot of music and a lot of bands in Liverpool...

regards

Toxteth (Alvin)

Welcome from us as well. This is a great forum and you will gain so much knowledge from it. We also have a place in Yalikavak - a wonderful place to be. I'm also from Merseyside (the other side of the water though!)

Welcome Toxteth, what a great intro, there are lots of us 50's babes on here who love our music, sure you'll join in the fun that is TLF. We have an apartment in Gumuskaya (in between Yalikavak and Gumusluk) so yes I agree you've chosen well. Yeh we looked in Spain (twice), but so glad we settled for Turkey, to me it is a far better place to be and you do get a far more spacious accomodation for your money.

Welcome to the TLF Toxteth, hours of fun await you. It becomes very addictive. We are also from Liverpool. Litherland to be exact. My very good friend Hilary and her husband Rob live in Toxteth at St Margaret's Vicarage. Rob is the priest there. It gets to be an increasingly small world
