I've done it

Hi all. After many months of searching and viewing property I have now purchased a lovely 3 bedroom apartment on the Mayfair 2 complex in Didim. Anyone else in this area please feel free to say hi.

Re: I've done it

Can't speak for the OP, but we won't go back to the UK except under extreme circumstances , been here 2 years now and once you get used to the red tape , ignorant drivers and bad excuses for a fillet steak in some places , the advantages of having 4 decent beaches less than 15 minutes away (3 of them only 7 minutes), the way better weather , waiter service, filling your fruit and veg drawers up for less than 5, actually having a decent social life where we can (as we did today ) go out for lunch whenever we want , eat out 4 times a week if we want (sometimes including a floor show), paying 68 lira council tax, having our street bin emptied every day (what is it down to in the UK.....once every 3 weeks or so?), swimming right outside our dining room window every day , having a barbie with no fear of the heavens opening , paying way less for internet/water/electric than we were , being more relaxed , all add up to a better lifestyle
There are some downsides, mainly food for me , I have cravings for corned beef and Warburtons bread (the local bread seems to have gone downhill to me lately).............road repairs that have been done by Jethro Clampett , but the advantages far outweigh the disadvantages

Try making your own bread. I'll share our recipe if you are interested.

I agree with your sentiments. As regards the cravings you have for UK food, these will eventually subside. But when you do eat the food you thought you missed, you may be disappointed.

Road repairs- yes they can be amateurish, but at least they have a go. It seems they have given up completely in the UK.
