10 DAYs to go!!!!!!

Cannot believe countdown going down to single digits!!! LOL.

Can't wait for our first Turkey holiday!!(sure there will be many more to follow!)

Have already packed all our pool/ beach stuff.

Have ironed all our holiday clothes and hung in our wardrobe, ready for packing a day or two before we go!!

Will sort out some holiday money and print all paperwork needed over the next coupla days!

So whats everyone else's holiday routine in the last week or so before going away?!?!

Top Tip. Weigh your baggage, if you are over weight be prepared to pay 15 -20 pounds per kilo, especially, Turkey to UK not many get away free, those extra gifts could be expensive.

So if your limit is 20Kg you need to travel with 15Kg if you intend to purchase anything.

Enjoy Turkey & your Hols

Bet you cannot wait... We have 20 days to go so just making a list mentally of what to take. You will have a great time. It is really hot out there at the moment.

One tip: Buy alcohol at UK duty free or Antalya Duty free not much difference in price to be honest if you want drinks for where you are staying as it is VERY expensive in Turkey. For eg a bottle of Smirnoff Vodka £35+ Cigarettes are cheap for the smokers though

My prep last week, sort monies, pack passports and tickets ususally pack 2 days before, I always try aim to pack a week before but has never happened. Catch up with a few friends and family then off we go...Looking forward to it.. :)

Chillipepper2 is correct August in Turkey is HOT expect minimum 38 degrees every day.

Alcohol, if you can buy 2 bottles in UK duty free for about £20 buy them, you will only be able to buy one bottle of spirit in Antalya duty free
