I've been using the forum for ages and have used all the advice given by members, Thank everyone. So it's now time to introduce myself. I'm Alan, and with my wife Maggie purchased a villa at Gum San 1, Gumusluk on the Bodrum Peninsular about 18 months ago. It has been used up to now as a holiday retreat, but I retire from work soon, well very soon with only 4 working days left. We will now be spending long hot summers on the Bodrum Penisular at our villa. Flying out in June and staying for 10 weeks before returning home to Kent to see the family. Then spending the rest of the summer back in Turkey. Hope to meet with other members from the area over the summer months and look forword to putting faces to names.
