So, it was getting near to the end of my time in Antalya and on the last Friday there, Serap asked if I was going to the Quiz. To be honest I did think that there may be a little surprise party of some description going on but as I’m a good sport I didn’t let on.
I was taken aback a bit though because when Banu of the Expats Social Group invited me to the stage she said that they had made a video for me and they showed it on the Big Screen. I became a little bit emotional at that as it brought a lot of memories flooding back and I knew it was going to be difficult to leave so many friends behind.
Here is the video they showed although I did add about 100 more pics at the end of it so as to get in a lot more of the crazy times that I had here.
I kept my speech short and sweet as there was drinking to be done!
Michael got the ball rolling with Tequila early doors.
Then I went around chatting to some friends and cuddling the sexy ladies.
Good to see Yusuf before I left. He does a lot for the expats here.
Ellen had apparently helped out with some of the captions for the video.
Had some good nights with Nicko. Genuine bloke and always up for a beer and a chat.
Things were starting to get silly at this point so I suggested leaving Shakers and heading off to Jungle Bar….
Serap loves the Rock Chick Selfie photos even more than I do!
Another very nice couple who I had the pleasure to get to know, Levent and Lorena.
Here is the lovely Jasmine. I had met her at Oktoberfest but she couldn’t remember. She probably wished she couldn’t remember me after this night as well. 😉
One big group photo before it was time to hit the road.
Bye Bye Antalya!
Thanks to Levent for holding the camera and Lorena for joining in. 🙂
