Alanya 2003

As a present we celebrated Johan's

birthday in Turkye, Alanya.

We tought we were entitled to another week away. And because it was Johan's birthday, I gave it to him as a present. But a third holiday in only six months had to be low budget. That's how we ended up in Özcakil, "ons huis". Terrific hotel! Johan got a gift from the personel for his birthday and they even had a bellydancer! (Perhaps not especially for Johan's birthday...)

Offcourse we were diving with Dolphin Dive, after all I had very good experiences with them. Some of the people were "old acquaintances" to me, like Ismael, the "porrende turk". In contrary to the last time we were diving with a large boat. And there were may intro-dives, and many many russians.

Turkye is well know for it's many amphora's, but also for it's beautiful caves. Besides that a lot of fish, like murenes and octopusses, big and small. And we have visited the wreck.

Above the water we also had a very good time. Delicious food and lots of parties. Every now and then so bad, the hotel ran out of beer. But luckily there's a super across the street, open 24 hours a day, so at 3 a.m. beer could be bought.The final baraccount in the hotel was the same amount as the whole holiday...

But the diving was very relaxing and really enjoyable. I could enjoy all the anemones and lots of snails. All together we've had a wonderful holiday.

The ultimate climax was the weddingproposal I got in a cave on a plastic plate. The text on the plate was in turkish, and I don't speak any turkish... Luckily there were enough translatorsa on board of the boat. And when asked in that way, with a boat full of people waiting for your answer, what else can you say... But it will be clear where the honeymoon is going!

By the way, we didn't have any fotographs of this holiday. The underwatercamera refused service after only 3 fotos and the other fotos should have been scanned. So finally the video, which was already formed to an dvd was taken to pick some frames of it.
