Travel || Belek at Sunset

I hope you all aren’t getting too bored with photos of Turkey, but this is the last day of it all. Belek was too gorgeous at sunset to not write a post dedicated to it!

The colours! The sea! The mountains! Who would be able to resist falling in love with Turkey?
 
Of course, sundown is one of those magic times when it comes to lighting so I quickly snapped a photo of one of the delicious cocktails I was drinking. Little did I know that Sam was getting me:

I look that Cousin It.
You can see the photo that I was taking in my post on Turkish food here.

I was gloriously happy all week long.
 
This week in Belek reminded me that I need to appreciate Sam and everything he does for me more. Not just during special times like on vacation. He’s wonderful, supportive, and though times have been really hard for us in the past (and probably won’t be easy in the future) we have each other. And we have love, and sometimes love is enough.

As a blogger I am extremely lucky. Sam is one of those people who LOVES taking photos. If you were to go though the boxes we have in storage there’d be 20 lbs of photos that Sam has taken.
At least I’ll always know I’ll never be one of those bloggers who is boring her boyfriend to tears begging him to take pictures.

Part of me loves this picture. And part of me thinks, “Holy *%& I look like my mom.”

The pier slightly later in the sunset process.
 
Every evening after enjoying the sunset, we’d go off and enjoy music or dancing, or even some circum performers. With me usually sitting with the kids.

I was a giantess in Turkey.
 
I’ve really enjoyed sharing my short time in one minuscule part of Turkey with you. I can’t wait to explore more of Turkey one day. I am rearing to go to Istanbul next!

    Gorgeous sunset photos!! Wow! I went to Side Turkey last year and absolutely loved it. Apparently Belek is only an hour away. Glad you had a great time ~ it shows in your pics. I am keen to see Istanbul some time too ~ Turkey is fabulous!

    • I remember seeing road signs for Side so it must have been fairly close! How long were you there for? I had zero expectations about going to Turkey and now I can’t wait to return one day! x

        I spent 7 glorious days there and just like you I had zero expectations for it. It blew me away. If you return to the area you should go to the Temple of Apollo. It was spectacular. I blogged about it last May. So beautiful! If you Google Temple of Apollo you will see what I mean – gorgeous!

  • gorgeous photos!
