In the mountains of Zonguldak, Turkey

Back in July we went on a 6 day trip to the Western Black Sea area of Turkey with TC Bakka. We started in Istanbul and then drove around 5 hours to the UNESCO town of Safranbolu. After spending a couple of days there we continued our journey to Amasra, Filyos and Zonguldak. We did a lot that week and explored so much but out of everything we did, the last day where we drove up a mountain to Gümeli in Zonguldak was by far my favourite thing!

I documented my day in the mountains on my iPhone as not only does shooting on it save me the hassle of carrying heavy camera equipment around, it’s also so much easier for me to edit the photos using apps on my phone and upload them straight away to Instagram. So here’s my day in iPhone pictures…

Exploring Dalaman with Hilton

The last couple of days have been spent in an area of Turkey called Dalaman in collaboration with Turkey’s Tourism board and Hilton.

Dalaman is on the Southwestern coast of Turkey, in the Muğla Province, and it’s an area I haven’t really explored that much. We usually drive straight passed it towards Fethiye/Oludeniz or we stop just before when we’re going to Marmaris. I was excited to see what this area had to offer and what we could explore.

The Hilton Dalaman Sarıgerme Resort & Spa kindly hosted us during out 3 days down there and when we arrived at dinner time on the Monday evening we were in for a treat. Hilton had made a reservation for us at their Chinese restaurant ‘TAO’. I really miss decent Chinese food in Turkey so I was stoked to be able to try their à la carte restaurant which was the best Chinese food i’d eaten in a long time.
