Well folks we have arrived in Side with all 18 bags and 2 boxes.

What a doddle going through customs, we got 6 trolleys piled all the cases on and then asked for help, waiving lira brought 2 men and 2 ladies who pushed our trolleys from the carousel and to the customs point. All the customs were interested in was a box with a sun lounger in as they obviously thought it was a TV. We pointed to the picture on the front, they picked the box up which was too light to the a TV and waived us through. Our men and ladies then pushed the trolleys to the waiting mini bus, well worth the 20 lira tip.

So the cost for our move was £512 in excess luggage plus £50 which BA made us pay in Manchester as they said a few cases were overweight, which I don't think they were as we checked the weights twice before setting off. I would certainly recommend anyone to bring their stuff over this way and not by container. If anyone wants any more info please pm me.

Marmalade..ive never found any here yet

Got some in Migros (also seen same brand in Tansas) last week. Don't know what the brand is but it's labelled as 'Portakal Recel - Light' and instead of slivers of peel contains small chunks - Cok Lezzetli though!

Great stuff, I know Antalya is a doddle, They only seem to have fixation with boxes at customs, they checked one of ours, it contained a mozzy net, 8 mugs a pair of speakers and sheets, they looked bemused all I said was ""Ev" they seemed to understand and waved us through. The thing is that you think you will only bring stuff out for a couple of years , six years later we still are at our maximum in terms of weight, CD players, Video players, DVD players, cups, Mugs, Bathroom mats, Bacon, outdoor lanterns, pictures etc etc, all stuff that we have replaced at home has a second life in Kizilot.. . Well done you guys and ENJOY!!!!!!!
