I was in Gumbet, Bodrum last September and it was gorgeous. It was our first time there. My boyfriends parents have gone to Turkey every year for the last 5yrs. We always said we wouldnt go back to the same place so soon as we want to visit diferent places. But this is the one place I would go back to. We are planning on going again next year. Already hav Portugal booked for this year. The weather was lovely. Very warm, everything is really cheap. You go out for a lovely meal with drinks etc etc and it would cost you a quarter of what we pay for the same here in Ireland. The people are also really nice and welcoming. My son has pure blonde hair and every where we went, we were stopped, they couldnt get over how blonde he was. Make sure you bring lots of stuff for mosquitos as i got a few bites and they were really itchy, that was the only down thing about the holiday. You'll have a great time.

wow sounds like you had a great time. have fun in portugal too..i'd love to visit there someday. and thanks for telling me about the mosquitos cause im allergic to mosquito bites (and they always seem to bite me even when there are 20 other people around)!
