HOLIDAY IN OLUDENIZ #3

ENG: It was morning and the sense of the new sun gave us hope. We woke up determined to find another place to stay as the noise in this was unbearable. Option 2 was that I was going to sing in the karaoke bar making it miserable for others, but more OK for us.

We opened the curtains on 1-2-3 being excited about what we didn’t see the night before. Well, the view was exceptional! Mountains, palm trees, swimming pool and sunshine – all yesterday’s horror seemed to fade away in that bright daylight. Breakfast was another positive experience – fresh and tasty vegetables and fruits, and I mean tomatoes really tasted like tomatoes! It was a pleasure, although the sausage was awfully pink, like candy pink.

Our first walk took us down the beach, which was like seven minutes away from our place. As I mentioned earlier Oludeniz reflects English taste and needs – all day breakfast and fish&chips everywhere. There is even an Asda (Azda) and a pretty awkward imitation of Harrods (Harrools). You can buy “original” Ray Ben sunglasses for 20 Turkish money (approx. £6), Louis Vuitton purse for £3 on sale and Gucci bags for the same price. It was like heaven of fake designer accessories! They might look good on the blog though, of course strictly stating their origin, and if I was lucky, I could have wear them once or twice before falling apart. Anyway, most of the tourists were proudly wearing them with their shirt collars up, of course, just to be even more “cool”.

BUT. Let’s get back to our mission to find a new hotel. Honestly, we got sidetracked again, this time by the water. Tom couldn’t help but have a dip, while I just waded into it, discovering proudly that yes, indeed, it was salty. The sea made us hungry, so after a short expedition we settled at a magical place reminding us of Scheherazade and her 1001 nights. It was like another dimension filled with mysterious baldachins, secret pergolas and Turkish mosaic lanterns. Falling in love with the place immediately we asked the waiter if they had any vacant rooms. His reply was both joyful and disappointing – there was a room available, however it cost four times our current one, plus the noise would have been an issue still.

You see, Oludeniz is a valley full of bars and restaurants, and to please the tourists there is music and silly shows everywhere echoing there and back until midnight. Bottom line, wherever we lived we would have still had to put up with the uproar until 12pm. Disenchanted as we were we decided to stay in our hotel, in the hope of replacing our room by a one with a better bathroom…

TO BE CONTINUED…

(Read PART 1 and PART 2 and here you can read how I got engaged in Oludeniz)

HU: Reggel… Ebredes… Elso reggel ugy keltunk, hogy ma tuti keresunk egy masik hotelt, mert a zaj ebben kibirhatatlan. Masik opcio volt, hogy en fogok karaokizni es akkor minket az kevesbe zavar. 1-2-3-ra szethuztuk a fuggonyoket, hogy akkor most majd kiderul mit nem lattunk meg tegnap ejjel.

Csodalatos latvany, hegyek, medence, palmafak, napsutes. Megvilagitva teljesen maskent tunt az elozo napi horrorelmeny. Osszeszedtuk magunkat es lementunk reggelizni. Isteni finom zoldsegek, sajtok – orultunk, hogy ez legalabb jo. A virsli ugyan ijesztoen rozsaszinu volt, es volt ott meg par “finomsag”, amit a londoni torok uzletekben is nagy ivvel kerulunk. Lenyeg, hogy nyugodtan megreggeliztunk, majd elindultunk masik hotelt keresni.

Lementunk a partra, ami kb. 7 perc seta volt tolunk. Utkozben rajottunk, hogy annak ellenere, hogy torok foldon vagyunk ugy kell keresni az igazi helyi specialitasokat. Ahova csak neztunk mindenhol angol eteleket, italokat kinaltak. Minden sarkon kaphato “eredeti” Ray Ben es Gucci napszemuveg potom 20 torok penzert, ami kb hat font vagy nyolc euro (par ketes tranzakcio utan vegre kiszamoltuk, hogy mennyi az annyi). Loius Vuitton penztarca akcioban 10TL (£3). Maris kineztem magamnak jopar “dizajner” kiegeszitot, merthogy a blogon jol mutatnak majd, termeszetesen jelezve, hogy nagyon fejk minden. Ha szerencsem van, akkor akar ketszer is viselhetem oket mielott szetesnek. Vegulis nem vettem semmit, legalabbis a fejk kategoriabol nem. A turistak tobbsege viszont buszken feszitett a cuccokban, a meg “coolabb” vizualis osszhatas erdekeben a gallerokat is felhajtottak (nem, ez nemcsak nalunk divat meg mindig).

Szoval, ott tartunk, hogy hotelt keresunk. Utkozben elteritett bennunket a part varazslatos latvanya, ugyhogy inkabb csobbantunk egyet. Vagyishogy a Tomas, en csak belegazoltam bokaig, megkostoltam es orultem magamnak, hogy “je, ez tenyleg sos”. Setaltunk egyet a part menten, masztunk egy kis hegyet is, ahonnan tovabbi csodalatos dolgok tarultak elenk.

Visszakecmeregtunk a setanyra – eleg strapas “slapkiban” (magyarul: strandpapucs) kavicsot taposni. Kozben ujra megeheztunk, igy kerestunk egy kellemes helyet az ebedhez. Olyan volt az egesz, mintha az 1001 ejszaka meseibe csoppentunk volna: baldachinos agyak, mozaiklampasok, rejtett lugasok. Wow! Mindjart meg is kerdeztuk, hogy van-e szabad szobajuk. Mondta a pincer, hogy van, igen, es nagyon csendes, nyugodt a hely, ejfel utan mar nincs hangos zene, kulonben a zsandarok buntetnek. Ebbol hirtelen tobb kovetkeztetest is levontunk:

1. Negyszer annyiba kerulne itt a szallas, mint a jelenlegi helyunkon

2. Teljesen mindegy hol lakunk, ejfelig mindenhol uvoltenek

3. A zsandar szot mi magyarok is hasznaljuk, je. Plussz, meg a dragam is megjegyezte, hogy a “Babka” is szokta emlegetni oket (Babka = “natymama”, aki szlovak nevelest kapott ugyan, de meg mindig “beszelni szepen a magyart” a regmult idok emlekere)

Ebed utan megegyeztunk, hogy szepen maradunk a seggunkon az eredeti hotelben, max kicsereltetjuk a szobat egy jobb tusolo remenyeben.

FOLYT. KOV.

  1. Searching for a hotel when already being in the city is always a little tough. Especially because they charge even more when you come-by instead of booking online. Hope you’ll be more lucky with everything else 🙂
