7 days in Antalya | Info trip

Nici nu stiu cu ce sa incep aceasta postare, pentru ca s-au strans atatea fotografii si emotii in decursul acestor  7  zile  de info trip  incat imi este foarte greu sa ma abtin sa nu pun 1000 de poze si sa va povestesc pe indelete toate experientele minunate  de care am avut parte alaturi de oameni frumosi!

Our home for the next 7 days  – Calista Luxury Resort

Zborul spre Antalya a fost destul de matinal, usor si rapid. La destinatie ne asteptau 28 de grade calduroase si Katy, ghidul nostru pentru cele 7 zile petrecute acolo. Urma sa ne cazam in statiunea Belek, la 30 de km de Antalya, La Calista Luxury Resort, unul dintre cele mai apreciate hoteluri de 5 stele din zona. Fac o paranteza si va marturisesc ca turcii mereu au camere spatioase si nici de data aceasta nu m-au dezamagit. Camera noastra a fost superba, cu vedere spre padurea de pini, am avut parte de multa liniste.

I don’t even know how to begin this post, because so many photos and emotions have been gathered during these 7 days of info trip that it’s very hard for me to refrain from posting 1,000 pictures and tell you all about the wonderful experiences I’ve had next to beautiful people!

The flight to Antalya was quite early, but fast and easy. At our destination we were expected by 28 degrees in the air and Katy, our guide for the 7 days spent there. We were going to stay in Belek, 30 km from Antalya, at the  Calista Luxury Resort, one of the most appreciated 5 star hotels in the area. Just a side note to tell you that the Turks always have spacious rooms and they didn’t disappoint me this time either. Our room was gorgeous, overlooking the pine forest, and we had a lot of peace.

Sa nu va inchipuiti ca am vegetat mai mult de o zi la soare all inclusive, ci am avut un program bine pus la punct pentru fiecare zi in parte, astfel am reusit sa facem atatea lucruri faine, pe care probabil ca nu le-as fi experimentat altfel.

Turkish style lunch on the river

Unul  dintre momentele autentice si inedite a fost pranzul  la restaurantul Botanik, amenajat deasupra unui rau, unde am servit peste si ceai negru turcesc si unde as fi stat sa imi fac siesta toata dupa-amiaza, insa a trebuit sa ne continuam drumul spre Kemer.

EN:

Don’t think that we vegetated for more than one day in the all inclusive sun, because we had a well-established schedule for each day, which is why we were able to do so many things that we would probably have not otherwise experienced.

One of the most authentic and unforgettable moments was the lunch at the Botanik restaurant, set up above a river, where we served fish and Turkish black tea and where I would have stayed all afternoon for my siesta, but we had to continue our journey to Kemer.

Ajunsi in Kemer, localitatea unde muntele se imbina frumos cu marea, dupa parerea mea, una dintre cele mai pitoresti zone de pe litoralul turcesc, am urcat spre drumul care duce spre telefericul  care ne-a urcat la cota 2365, Tahtali.

Kemer –  cota 2365

Sus de tot erau in jur de 15 grade, insa mai zareai pe ici-colo urme de zapada… Nu am avut decat 15 minute la dispozitie sa cercetam zona si sa admiram peisajul, insa  pot spune ca emotiile au fost mai mari in cabina in timp ce urcam 🙂 Peisajul iti taie respiratia de-a dreptul !

EN:

Once we arrived in Kemer, the place where the mountain blends nicely with the sea, and in my opinion one of the most picturesque areas on the Turkish coast, we climbed the long road leading to the cable car that took us to 2,365 m altitude, to Tahtali.

There were around 15 degrees up there, but you could still see some snow… We’ve only had 15 minutes to explore the area and to admire the scenery, but I can say that the nerves were bigger in the cable car, as we climbed. 🙂 And the landscape is breathtaking!

Nu-i asa ca v-ati dori sa va treziti in fiecare zi aici? Eu asa am simtit in fiecare dimineata cand imi savuram micul dejun pe marginea piscinei. Am facut o obsesie pentru clatitele in forma de inima combinate cu crema de ciocolata, fistic si miere. Sper ca nu se vede… 🙂 In rest, am gasit aici tot ce mi-a poftit inima !

Best breakfast ever!

Apropo, stiati ca aici la Calista a fost cazat fostul presedinte USA, Barak Obama, in timpul vizitei pentru evenimetul G20? Curiosi, am mers sa vizitam apartamentul prezidential unde a stat, iar mai jos aveti vederea sa spre mare.

EN:

Don’t you wish you would wake up here every day? That’s how I felt each morning when I enjoyed my breakfast by the pool. I became a little obsessed with the heart-shaped pancakes combined with chocolate cream, pistachio and honey. I hope it doesn’t show… 🙂 I’ve found here everything my heart desired!

By the way, did you know that former US president Barack Obama stayed at Calista during his visit for the G20 event? Curious, we went to see the presidential suite where he stayed, and below you can see its sea view.

Intr-una din zile mai ploioase, dupa multe drumetii, am mers sa ne rasfatam intr-un final la Spa-ul hotelului. Desi am optat pentru un masaj de relaxare, mi-am dorit mereu sa experimentez un hammam turcesc adevarat. Asta pentru ca am reusit  sa ma ard putin la soare si nu era momentul ideal pentru hammam, terapie ce include si peeling. Insa am reusit sa trag cu ochiul spre camera cu aburi si m-am convins ca trebuie sa incerc si eu. Poate data viitoare!

Hammam, sauna & heated pool

Intre cateva sedinte de sauna, am preferat sa ma relaxez intr-una din piscinele exterioare, care era incalzita la 25 de grade. Divin, nu-i asa? Dupa asemenea rasfat, am prins energie pentru urmatoarele zile de aventuri !

EN:

In one of the rainy days, after many hikes, we finally went to pamper ourselves at the hotel’s spa. Despite opting for a relaxing massage, I’ve always wanted to experience a real Turkish hammam. Because I managed to get some light sunburns, it was not the ideal time for the hammam, a therapy that includes peeling. But I peeked into the steam room and convinced myself that I have to try it. Maybe next time!

Between several sauna sessions I prefered to relax in one of the outdoor swimming pools, which was heated to 25 degrees. Divine, right? After such pampering, I charged my batteries for the next days of adventure.

 

O alta zi superba de mai am petrecut-o in Antalya. Am vizitat zona portului vechi, plina de terase, cu o priveliste panoramica spre muntii din Kemer. Recomand  sa admirati apusul din aceasta zona… este superb de-a dreptul! Un alt lucru pe care il admir la turci este ca sunt  friendly si nu doar ca intalnesti pisici peste tot, ci au si grija de ele. Chiar in portul vechi au amenajat un spatiu special pentru ele, un fel de casuta etajata cu mancare si apa la discretie. Mi-ar placea tare mult ca si la noi sa fie initiate genul acesta de actiuni.

Antalya, Old Harbor

De asemenea, o puteti lua pe stradutele pietonale care va vor scoate pe strada principala, o zona comerciala, unde va puteti delecta cu mult shopping, daca ati ratat zilele de bazar, ca noi 🙂 Luni si joi insa trebuie neaparat sa mergeti in marele Bazar. Totul este negociabil!

EN:

Another gorgeous day was spent in Antalya. We visited the old harbor area, full of terraces, with a panoramic view over the mountains of Kemer. I recommend you to admire the sunset in this area… it’s downright gorgeous! Another thing for which I admire the Turks is that they are cat friendly and it’s not just that there are cats everywhere, but they take care of them, too. Even in the old harbor they have set up a special place for them, with unlimited food and water. I would really like to see this kind of actions initiated in Romania as well!

You can also walk on the pedestrian streets that will take you to the main road, a commercial area where you can enjoy shopping if you missed the bazaar days, like we did. 🙂 But on Mondays and Thursdays you have to go to the Grand Bazaar. Everything is negotiable!

The Land of Legends

Fie ca aveti sau nu copii, este neaparat sa vizitati acest “Imperiu”  si sa alocati cel putin o zi pentru a reusi sa beneficiati de tot ce are de oferit. Ca si spatiu este imens, iar ca si efect- impresionant! Desi design-ul si conceptul in sine al acestui complex a fost gandit pentru copii, va asigur ca veti fi atrasi de atmosfera vesela si colorata! Efectiv nu poti sa nu dai in mintea copiilor aici 🙂

EN:

Whether you have children or not, it is necessary to visit this ‘Empire’ and take at least one day to benefit from everything it has to offer. The space is huge and the effect is impressive! Although the concept of this complex was designed for children, I can assure you that you will be attracted by the joyful and colorful atmosphere! You really can’t keep yourself from acting childish there. 🙂

Recunosc ca am avut inima usor stransa in ziua cu rafting-ul. Cum nu sunt adepta sporturilor extreme, nu eram sigura daca o sa fac fata acestei aventuri, mai ales ca eu am rau de mare, de tobogane mari si orice pare usor extrem.

Rafting day

Dar dupa ce am ajuns la mal, tare m-am bucurat ca nu am dat inapoi, cum voiam sa fac pe ultima suta de metri. Sunt o lasa, recunosc!  Ne-am impartit in doua echipe si da-i bataie! Trainerii nostri au fost destul de duri cu noi, ne-au pus la treaba de am vaslit pana mi-a venit rau 🙂 Dar ce haios a fost ! Clar ca daca as avea ocazia, as face-o din nou. Am auzit ca prin Buzau se poate face rafting…asa e?

EN:

I admit that I had a bit of a heavy heart on the rafting day. As I am not a fan of extreme sports, I wasn’t sure how I was going to deal with this adventure, especially since I get sea sick and I am afraid of big water slides and anything that seems extreme.

But after I got to the shore, I was glad I didn’t back out, like I wanted to do at the last minute. I am a coward, I admit it! We split into two teams and we got to it! Our trainers were pretty tough with us, they had us rowing until we couldn’t do it anymore. 🙂 But it was so much fun! If I had the opportunity, I would clearly do it again!. I heard that you can go rafting in Buzau… is that true?

Antalya, ai fost frumoasa, relaxanta si  plina de adrenalina ! Ma bucur tare ca am avut ocazia sa experimentez si alte lucruri faine in afara de all inclusive, care are farmecul lui. Insa important e de stiut ca Turcia nu inseamna doar resorturi de 5 stele. Am descoperit multa autenticitate, pasiune, frumusete si naturalete. M-am simtit super bine cu toata echipa participanta la acest info trip si da, as merge cu voi oriunde !

EN:

Antalya, you were beautiful, relaxing and filled with adrenaline! I am very glad that I had the opportunity to experiment other nice things apart from all inclusive, which has its own charm. But it’s important to know that Turkey doesn’t just mean 5 star resorts. I discovered a lot of authenticity, passion, beauty and naturalness. I felt really good together with the whole team participating in this info trip and yes, I would go with you anywhere!

Multumim :
