11 days..... not until we get there but until I see my oncology consultant to get the final all clear then I can start booking things. Done the ground work looking for a villa (with a bath tub), checked out flight timings, priced up a car, just waiting for the “It’s okay for you to go” . Travel insurance is an area I need to investigate more as medical history comes in to play and the price takes off quicker than a Saturn 5.

87 days for us! Just did our evisas, worked out at £31.82 for 2 of us but still can't work out why they charge in USD, wish it was in TL. Now just need to find out if our Turkish Airlines flights booked via Ataturk will change to the new Istanbul Airport as I need to book a hotel room for our overnight stay.

It's in USD for the same reason the Duty Free is in Euro at the airports.

When you have a weak currency, you will charge in a 'stable' main currency so that when your currency drops, the charge effectively goes up.

It's sometimes called the Monetary Unit Principle.

Which Stable Currency is a matter of choice, the USD is common, as is the Swiss Franc, Euro, GBP, etc., etc.  It generally indicates an organization's awareness of their own currency's weakness.

I wish I hadn't counted - it appears to be 115 days to go.   At least the flights are booked.

I hope you have good news Pompeyalbie when you go for your checkup and that you can then find a wonderful place to stay in Kalkan.

Well looks like we are going to wait another 7 months before we come back. Scan results show some areas warranting further investigation so another MRI scan & biopsy before we know what the next steps are. Anyone in the Portsmouth area going out as I have something for Adem I need delivering.
