Well had a really good bush camp before we arrived here yesterday, had a really great time going wood collecting once we arrived and then had a really good dinner, decided to go to bed early tonight as I was so fed up with dealing with the flys that seem to love my blood.....I had nice clean waxed legs before I left now I look like the moon, covered in big old craters!!!  Oh...I feel so manky most of the time...!!

Next day we traveled to The Sugar Beach in Oludeniz, just as we pulled in we heard a big pssssstttttt our first tyre had burst!!

So we setup camp and then got told that we (me, travis, caleb, kate and Lauren) would be in the first group up for para gliding @ 12.45, it was now 11.00 so didn't really have to chance to even think about it which is probably the best thing.

Arrrrggghhhh.....I feel so great just got back from my para glide it was amazing you just float up there like a bird catching the thermals, it was such an amazing experience.  After wards we celebrated with another wrap kebab, which now happen to be Travis 8th or 9th Kebab since arriving in Turkey, he is trying to set a new record I think.

So tonight Bobotie was on our menu, the dish which the lovely Ruth supplied me with the recipe for, I just hope everyone was going to enjoy it, we had to do a vegetation and non banana option, plus we were cooking over this sort of fire pit and had the other overland truck watching us!!  Yes, there was another overland truck that had arrived at the campsite today, they were just on a short 6 week tour, they only had 20 people on their truck and to be honest our truck looked so so amazing compared to theirs.  All the girlie's quickly cast their eye to scout for any talent.....sadly no much really!!! ha ha LOL

Bobotie went down an absolute treat, everyone seemed to like it and JC said that it was one of his best meals ever....loving JC!!!

We all went out for a night on the town with other truck, we so showed them...they were all on water and all left the club before we did!!  Travis was absolutely hilarious, he had already had many beers before we left, needless to say he didn't last long and ended up stumbling back to the campsite (he made it back, we checked when we all returned).  It was a good night, lots of laughs and even Derek (grumpy old git) came out to party, he was lovin it, dancing away for ages.  I also learnt that Hilton gives the best massage, I will make sure I stay his friend......!!

Next day decided I needed to spring clean, so found the bleach and gave lots of things a big wash, cups, plates and cutlery, I felt so much better.

This was good time just for chillin, decided that I didn't want to do any more actives as I would love to learn to dive and white water raft later on during the trip and don't want to exhaust the budget during the first month.

Peaches and Travis brought a ball, so we had a good game of volley ball, which I was awful at, but hey got to start somewhere...then we moved onto ping pong and swimming in the sea, so overall had a little afternoon of exercise so felt much better.

Next stop will be Olympos which is one of JC's favorite places on the trip, tree houses and beach, sounds like fun and more chillin time which will be gratefully received as Iran is soon approaching.
