Tips for Cappadoccia

Submitted by Bodrum Bulletin reader Ros Elliott-Özlek

I am sure most of you have visited Cappadoccia, like myself, but this time we went to see our friend who teaches English to would-be English teachers at the university there. She also happens to be a registered tour guide.

Despite having toured the area frequently in the 1990s, I still learned a couple of new things and saw places I had never made time for before.


Turkish Citizenship Application Process for a Turkish-English couple - Part 3

This article is a continuation of Turkish Citizenship Application Process for a Turkish-English couple - Part 1, Part 2.

For the third and final part of our application story, yes, final at last! We were telephoned in July 2014 by our local Bodrum Nufus Ofis to come by and collect our new Turkish ID card.

We needed first to go to our local Muhtar to get a form from him stating that the applicant was registered and lived in the area. We also had to bring 2 photographs for the ID card.


Yalikavak's New Windmills

It has been revealed that a controversial project for the construction of 13 wind-turbines is in its final stages. The turbines are to be built on the ridge-line between Yalikavak and Ortakent and would be visible from most of the coastal towns around the peninsula and would become a major feature of the peninsulas landscape.


Olive Oil at Lake Bafa

Submitted by Bodrum Bulletin reader Ros Elliott-Özlek

I have been visiting Lake Bafa for many years now, since I moved to Izmir in 1995. We have taken many visitors to Heraklia on our way to Bodrum, and have bought honey and other goodies from the roadside vendors all along the way. So I was surprised when my colleague suddenly urged our minibus driver to stop somewhere along that road before the Heraklia turn off.

We were coming back from Milas where we had been working that day, and Gill said she'd like to buy some olive oil.
