At the beach in Tosmur, meeting Han again

We always enjoy going to the beach in Tosmur. It is a wonderful place to swim, and they have a great beach restaurant with delicious food.

Here we are at the beach restaurant:

We were happy too see Han again…

Norway`s National Day celebration at Bistro Dolphine`s in Tosmur

IMG_5890

We celebrated Norway`s National Day at Bistro Dolphine`s in Tosmur outside Alanya. They had a special celebration night for Norwegian tourists. We so appreciate everything they had put into this for us! First we went to the Norwegian church in Oba so we were filled with the Holy Spirit… We also met our favorite taxi driver Sukru!!

Then back at Bistro Dolphine`s…

Here are the amazing men working at Bistro Dolphine`s: Yunus, Ramazan, Omer, Hassan and Ahmet!

The food was delicious as always:

And then there was fireworks!

All in all, the perfect night for us! I will give this restaurant experience a 10 out of 10 on my review! We definitely came back many times, and will in the future. If you are in the Tosmur area, please stop by this wonderful restaurant! The best food and best service ever you will find here! Thanks to Bistro Dolphine`s for making this a very special night for Norwegians!

Galipo Restaurant in Tosmur

We have been to Galipo Restaurant many times before, and the food is always good. But this time it was different, because they serve really big portions of food, and I cannot deal with that after my gastric sleeve surgery. Mom and I decided to share a “Galipo Special” which was delicious, it was beef with garlic taste.

There were very few guests, but Galipo and his employees are very nice. I will give the restaurant 9 out of 10 on my review.

Galipo and the waiter Emin, took very good care of us.

After the meal, Emin served us a plate of fruit and apple tea free of charge! We recommend this restaurant to everyone!

Here is a review I have done before: Galipo Restaurant in Tosmur

Disappointment at Bistro Dolphine`s and church service in Oba

We went back to Bistro Dolphine`s and asked if they could make a shrimp casserole for us to share. This was no problem.

The shrimp casserole was delicious, but after my gastric sleeve surgery, I was only able to handle this:

Then a guy who called himself “Jackson” came and introduced himself. I had never seen him before. He said he was looking for a girl to be his girlfriend to teach him some Norwegian, and asked if that could be me. When I wasn`t interested, he made comments that were rude. I had in one hair extention, and he walked around saying my hair wasn`t real. I really hope the guys at Dolphine`s fire this guy before he ruins the experience of other restaurant guests in the future.

After the meal, the father of Yunus offered to give us a ride home. This was great! I will give this experience an 8 out of 10, but as I wrote earlier, I hope they fire this guy “Jackson.”

The next day, we were in Oba for church service. It was a really nice time. After that we walked about the empty streets of Oba, seeing the different restaurants closed down for the season.

Back at Aisha`s, going to the beach and meeting Han

Mom and I decided to go to Aisha`s place for an osmanish kebab. We were greeted with hugs and kisses by Aisha and her husband Gilad.

They are so lovely! We ordered an osmanish kebab to share, and it was of course the best we have tasted. I will give this restaurant a 9,5 out of 10 on my review. We have been here so many times, we are treated as members of the family! And it only cost us 29 turkish lire.

The next day we were back at the beach

And I think I looked good in my new bikini:

We had a lot of contact with a waiter named Han, and he always treated me and mom as royalty!

Summer Love Restaurant, new mattresses and new bikinis

My mom and I went to Summer Love Restaurant. We decided to share a shrimp casserole. We were the only guests, as the season was coming to an end. The starters came quickly, bread with olives and dips. Then the most delicious casserole I have tasted was served.

The manager Halil, was in a good mood as always, and treated me and mom as princesses!

I will give this restaurant experience a 9 out of 10 on my review.

The next day, mom and I went shopping for new mattresses for our beds. We ended up in a furniture shop in Oba, and bought two new mattresses:

We have never slept like this before, it was an awesome feeling.

We also needed new bikinis, and we found a great clothes store in Tosmur with beautiful bikinis:

Market in Oba, M&M Restaurant, meccolar and bananas

We went to the market in Oba, which is every Monday. We bought a lot of dried fruit like mangoes and papayas, and we bought a ton of underwear. My mom also got a new carpet for our home in Dim Villa.

I sometimes have to slightly push my mom to buy things because she always says that she will get it the next time. Then when I get something, she gets a bit jealous and says ” I wish I had bought that.” So I pushed her a bit to get the carpet, and she was so happy that we bought it.

I wanted to get some new dresses, and we found this lady from Usbekistan who sold everything from fashion dresses to beach wear. She was so lovely and we ended up with 4 new dresses. She also kept saying how much she loved us!

After we were done at the market, we needed lunch. We went to M&M Restaurant in Oba. A friendly waiter named Adim greeted us.

We asked for one portion of pasta carbonara to share and that wasn`t a problem. The food tasted really great. I will give this restaurant 8,5 out of 10 on my review.

After the visit in Oba, we went to the beach in Tosmur. There were some german and russian guests, but we were the only ones from Norway. The Mustafa Beach Bar had now become a part of meccolar.

I had a cheeseburger and I could only eat half of it, so I took the other half with me home. Mom had her favorite, chicken shish. It only cost us 39 turkish lire.

We had seen at the market that it was season for bananas, and we saw some on the beach too.

And of course, in the beautiful garden at Dim Villa, there were bananas. They needed some ripening, but it was a beautiful sight. I ate a lot of bananas as in between meals also. I am happy that I can eat bananas again. I definitely need carbs, and it is a great source for healthy fruit sugar.
