Turkey one last time

In 2010 I received an opportunity to go to Antalya one more time so I decided to take a little brake of work and catch some east august sun..

This was my 8th time in Turkey if I remember correctly. Wouldn't say that I'm a huge fan of it. Most of the times I've been here with my parents. So in 2010 I decided to go there one last time on my own just to relax from busy city life and improve my health a little bit.

So here I am in Alanya - a small resort city near Antalya.

Cleopatra beach, Alanya, Turkey.

I've been told that since there are no sandy beaches in Antalya, Cleopatra ordered to bring some from Egypt and make an exclusive beach for her.

Well, it is quite interesting all around but most of all I enjoyed the weather, since I'm more like a modern guy who likes huge cities and modern technologies.

But still why not to enjoy a great ice cream on board. :)

The water in August is even too warm. I could spend there all day.

This was the first time when I decided to try wake boarding.

At first I tried it sitting on a board.

After couple of laps I tried to stand up.

And after two or three falls I finally got it.

And have to say that sensations are fenomenal.

Since I'm a keen snowboarder I finally had found an alternative sport for the summer.
