It has been a little over two weeks since I got back from my vacation and I’m still trying to adapt to city life. You see, it was my first vacation in three years. Funny how I’ve gotten used to the construction happening next door for over two years now…
I’ve spent the first three days of my vacation in a small fishing village called Selimiye, located on the mountainous Bozburun Peninsula, where the Mediterranean sea meets the Aegean sea. It is not as uninhabited as I imagined it would be, but certainly more peaceful and uncrowded than Bodrum, which I stayed for a week afterward.
The village has a seaside boardwalk lined with pomegranate trees and restaurants that overlook the bay.
At the end of the boardwalk is the village square with small shops and a patisserie called Cafe Ceri. This tiny patisserie is operated by a warm and welcoming couple, who serve the best cappuccino I have tasted in a long time. And their profiterole isn’t bad either.
Cafe Ceri at noon. We’re anxiously waiting for our first round of profiteroles.
Below is a gallery of all the other photos I took during my trip. Enjoy!
