Why Turkey is the place to go for a family holiday
We've all experienced it haven't we?
We jump off the plane full of excitement, spend two minutes throwing our cases into the hotel room and then... the other half heads straight to the hotel pool to lounge around sipping exotic cocktails all day, while reading some obscure romantic novel.
For many, this may seem like the perfect break, but not me. Don't get me wrong, there's nothing peculiar about recuperating from the daily rigours of life in murky old Britain with a mojito in one hand and a bottle of factor 30 sun cream in the other.
But, in my opinion, the essence of a truly great holiday is combining downtime by the pool or on the beach with high-octane activities and cultural experiences.
Therefore, Turkey is the place for me. Such is the diversity of the country, families have enough scope to have their ideal break even if their individual interests may vary.
Istanbul fascinates me. Straddling Asia and Europe, the picturesque city offers a unique blend of old and new, as well as enough points of interest to occupy the whole clan. I find a daytime walk around the many bazaars a perfect way to unwind - and empty my wallet - before taking in the thriving night scene in one of the city's jazz clubs. For those who may feel that Istanbul has become "too cool for school" and isn't really their scene, a trip to see the rock formations in the Cappadocia region may be in order.
Having spent my fair share of time in Stoke-on-Trent, the sight of uniquely shaped chimneys taking up large parts of the skyline has become a common one. The fairy chimneys in Cappadocia, however, are set in a slightly more climatic area than the pottery banks of north Staffordshire. Cappadocia is a natural phenomenon and, in my view, one of the most bizarre, yet beautiful places in the world.
With my thirst for cultural and historical knowledge quenched and several hours spent mountain biking or scuba diving in crystal clear waters, it's time to head back to the beach for a well earned rest.
It's not a bad way to spend a week or two, is it?
