Uncle Spikes Turquoise Turkey

Guest Post by: Uncle Spike’s Adventures

As a keen follower of Ms Jessica on her adventures of all things Turquoise, I thought it high time to show off a few of our beaches and coastline to add to the many beautiful scenes we are seeing on her blog – so here is my brief tour of Turquoise Turkey…

These are all simple shots I have taken personally over the years, and all of these I have selected are from the western coasts of Turkey; so that means either the Aegean Sea or the Mediterranean Sea. So I think we’ll just head down from north to south…

First up are a couple of shots from the province of Balıkesir, which is near the top left hand corner of the Asian part of Turkey, next to Çanakkale in fact (you may well have heard of that one).

Highlights of the Great Ocean Road

Great Ocean Road

I honestly never thought that Australia could have such one of kind spots in every region I visited. At some point, I expected to be let down or that a place couldn’t top the prior, but Australia continued to leave me hanging on and wanting more. Continue reading

The Turquoise Waters of the Mornington Peninsula

Guest Post by: Surf and Fitness Journey

I’ve grown up with the ocean. My grandfather took me out on his boat and we would spot penguins and seals in the water. As a result of my coastal upbringing (though later-in-life surf journey) I feel happiest with the sea. On Tuesday, I got to meet somebody who feels the exact same way. She’s even dedicated her blog to her worldly coastal travels. Enter Jessica from Turquoise Compass. I had the brilliant opportunity to meet this inspiring traveller and show her around my part of the world.
