Local Family in the Taurus Village
Side, Turkey, Europe
I'm travelling to Side in May and wonder if anyone can advise on lovely beaches outside of Side which might easily be reached by public transport or Dolmus? Thankyou to all those who replied to my query about "hassle" in Side I posted in November 2008-- I put a reply there just now as I had forgotten I sent the question and was delighted to have had 6 replies!
What's it like for mosquitoes in Side in May? I have an allergic reaction so I ask about this wherever I go. I'm hoping there may be fewer there as it's not too green.
Alper how did you get my real name? I thought I'd just be known as Maisymac!
Miriam, if you put your full name on your homepage anyone can see it! :-)
You can easily change this, by the way...then we can call you Maisy (or whatever).
Go to your homepage (link at top of this page when you are logged in) then click' change your phot'. You don't have to change your photo, but you can then change your name etc (not your VT name though, you can't change that without creating a new account and asking email@example.com to delete this one).
Sorry I can't help with beaches/mossies (didn't go anywhere near Side).
Thanks leics but I'm not bothered about changing it. I was just curious and it's a long time since I joined so I can't remember putting my real name on my home page. I couldn't see it there myself (musn't have looked hard enough) and was therefore intrigued. Still haven't had any replies to my questions but I don't think it's a very busy forum.> M
Can't tell you about mosquitoes in Side in May, but I was ok in early July (Olu Deniz area)..and I come up in golfballs! May is quite early in their season (March - November).
Take all your anti-allergy stuff with you anyway.
Will do! I was fine in Olu too and that was in May too but we stayed up in Hisaronu in the mountains and it was freezing at night. Although there was 1 night I was down at Olu and had no trouble (it's murder, I've had calves like rugby balls before). I do take anti-histamines and carry anti-biotics too in case I get bitten and become neurotic! Thanks > M
