Leaving Altinkum
After a lot of soul searching, we have decided to pack up and leave Altinkum. :cry: . We are going to live in Akbuk instead :D . Over the 21 months that we have been here we have become more in love with Akbuk and an oppatunity arose to rent a house that is 2 minutes from the sea front and with views to die for, and after viewing it we have made the decision to go for it. The views that will greet me each and every day will make my heart soar.

The Island and the 2 big hotels to the left.


Mountains and windfarm.


The view straight ahead.



2 minutes down the lane and we come to this.



We have by no means fallen out with Altinkum, its just that we like Akbuk more, but we will still be regular viistors to see our friends on the street and hopefully they will visit us.

I am so glad that we rented, as it has given us the freedom to make this choice and move on to the next step of our lives in Turkey. We are very excited about it all and will be moving in 2 weeks time.

Every good wish Sharon and Eric for an equally wonderful life in Akbuk. It certainly looks like somewhere it would be a pleasure to wake up to each morning. Good Luck.

Hi Sharon and Eric. We saw you in the Green Wine Bar on New Years Eve, and wish we had come over and introduced ourselves to you. We recognised you from AA forum avatar. Friends of ours live in Akbuk, and it is a really beautiful place. Celebis is a lovely restaurant/bar, and the owner is a lovely chap. Hope you will be happy there,and if you are having a "leaving" party would love to come along.

I remember speaking to you when you still lived in the UK and I was extolling the virtues of Akbuk then.
