What if?

If you have ever had the chance to visit Turkey, by taking tips from the things I have written; please do let me know about what your thoughts are. Have you seen the Basilica Citern? Did you see the water coming up from down below? Can you beleive that there were actually people living in there years ago, and now it is basicly sinking. How would you feel if this would happen to you? What if you house would start getting water from somewhere? What would you do? Do you have an Insurance to cover this type of damage? I am pretty sure people living in Basilica Citern didn't have any type of guarantee of any kind that would give them the chance to build another life somewhere else.
But even having a chance like this in our days is a very good thing for us. The idea of having an insurance of any type to give us the chance to reboot. Don't you think?

Denizati Holiday Village

Denizati is located in Gumuldur, established in a 60.000m2 pine woodland.It is like walking in the forest and going to the sea with only 3 steps. This place used to be a camping resort covered with pine trees. I am talking like 20 years ago.Now they have divided the the land into two and kept half of it as camping and the other hafturned into a wonderful holiday village.
In the camping area, you can rent the tents and just bring your sheets and luggage to stay.The toilets, bathrooms are all so clean. There are also places (used by all camp residents)to wash dishes and do laundry. Wonderful, beautiful place to go..
For those of you that is not into camping; visit the holiday village section of Denizati. Has a swimming pool, animation, a small poi pond, internet access. (Is also available in camping area as of June 20th) All rooms have air conditioning, TV, hair dryer, a private terrace and telephone.Mini golf, tennis, table tennis, basketball, horse riding, trampoline are some of the activitiesoffered in Denizati by the animation team.

I honestly can say, words are not enough to describe how muh fun I am having everytime I visit Denizati. Maybe, if one of you guys who visits could find the words to describe.
