A Trip to Kabak, Turkey, Full Moon Camp

By  | 

My name is Laylah Delkhastehm. In August 2015,  I went to Kabak, Turkey, Full Moon Camp, an AMAZING trip to Turkey with my mum (Sarah Amsler). It was in Kabak, high up in the mountains! We love traveling together, and Baba (my dad, Mahmood Delkhasteh) enjoys his time as a bachelor when we’re away, but we do also go with him in other places, just not here.

It’s always lovely to travel with my mum because we go LOADS of places: waterfalls, caves, boat cruises, hikes that made me have heat exhaustion accidently… We meet Kate on this trip.

We stayed in a tree house at ‘Full Moon Camp’ that is 10/10!!! They have a super swimming pool; it’s run by a lovely family, and they’re sociable.

On the boat cruise, we had to get on a bus then go to the beach to find our boat (which was extremely easy). It was a stupendously hot day, and we stopped on five islands, and we got to swim in all the coves there, the islands were

  • Camel beach
  • Blue cave (it really is blue and turquoise!)
  • Cold water cave (super cold on a hot day)
  • St Nicholas Island
  • Butterfly Valley (lovely butterflies)

Mum and I always swam far from the boat and loved to jump off the boat; we explored every inch before getting back on our boat. On the trip, we met a terrific woman named Katherine Green. When we were on St Nicholas Island, she threw bread in the water so the fish would come near us! Katherine Green is who I’m writing for now! She’s also an amazing photographer and took a picture of me and mum in deep, turquoise blue water (yet again far out!). I’d like to say a HUGE THANKS to Katherine, or Kate.
