A Week In Fethiye 19.07.2011

This post has been dusted off and taken straight out of the "According to Matt Archives". I originally posted this content on my old blog "Crochet & Crafts According To Matt". I thought that it was a shame for creativity and inspiration to lay dormant, so I'm recycling the content from my old blog, keeping it available for you all to read, reference and use as you please.

A Week In Fethiye

Finally, I get back to sitting down at my laptop. I cant believe how fast time has gone! One whole month since my last post.....EEEEEEEEEEK!
I've had a pretty hectic month. Returning back to "the show" after vacation took some getting used to. However, getting back into a regular routine was put on hold as I ended up getting injured. Nothing serious and all is fine now. A twisted pelvis from some of the bungee work which meant lots of pain when trying to dance. Just a little bump in the road, but after lots of physio and pain relief I'm back in the game!!!
I also had some time away with my family. Something that I haven't done in a while, due to working out of the country for the past five years.
I joined my Mum, Dad and younger sister on their holiday to Turkey for a week. We stayed in a little town called Fethiye and got to spend a week eating delicious food and visiting so many interesting places.

The weather was fantastic and really gave me a boost of energy!
It really was an amazing week and I loved visiting the nearby islands and seeing so much wildlife along the way. It really was such a treat for me when we happened to spot a sea turtle. We were able to watch it for a good five minutes as it swam and fed in the shallow water of the harbour.
Whilst away I also spent a good amount of time at the side of our swimming pool reading some wonderful books:


The Celestine Prophecy and Tuesdays with Morrie, are two of my favourite books. I have read them both many many times.
I first read The Celestine Prophecy about six years ago when I was going through a bit of a "down" time. It really broke me out of my bout of depression and made me look at things from a different angle. It really speaks to me and I always seem to come back to it when I want to feel a little more balanced.

Tuesdays with Morrie. Such a touching book and like the Celestine Prophecy gives me a different take on life. It really is a MUST!!! I would recommend it to any and everybody! These are two books that I always come back to time and time again.
Finally, Kathy Griffins book! All I can say is this lady TICKLES me!!!
Such a funny read. I'm a huge fan of KG. She's so frank and quick with her humour. Sometimes too far for some people, but you have to give it to her for pushing boundaries.
I became a big fan of hers since watching her reality television series "My life on the D list" and her phrase 'SUCK IT' has kind of become my motto over the past few weeks. (I think that's why I needed the other two books to level me out! )
