Returning from her trip - SwimTrek Guest, Emma shares her highlights and insider view of swimming along the turquoise coast of the Lycian Way, Turkey;
Our group was a hodge podge mix of couples, families and singles and by the end, with the magic of time and the natural love of swimming - we created such a cohesive and jovial relationship.
Our guides were superb. I would go on any trip led by Pete. He is responsible, laid back, fun and a very good swim coach. Emma was able, a magnificent example of someone who uses her talent and was a lovely person.
The staff on the boat were also so gracious and the food that Zeinep made was fresh, healthy, tasty, and so thoughtfully presented. We were really taken care of.
The hotel was great for us and every day after our bodies were weary from Salt and sun, we sat in the hotel Pool and chatted.
The little town of Kas was a superb backdrop to the entire experience. A hub of activity at night and packed with people, it was lively, fun and filled with warmth- physically and otherwise.
And then - the swimming. We were challenged distance wise and on the first few days there was a lot of swell, chop and drag that made me feel quite sea sick and like I was in a washing machine. But it improved and once we were out swimming with the turtles - the spinning stopped.
Overall it was exceptional and I would recommend to anyone who is an able swimmer and also who loves sea life.
