Marmaris Turkey

  Shopgirl 00:33 06 May 12

My best friend Margaret is 72 years old. She is a very fit 72 year old.She has been going to Turkey on her own. Since 2009 she has been to Turkey fourteen times on her own.Spending six weeks there at a time twice a year. Her mother is 92 years old and is still very much alive. On Margarets last visit she was on the back of a scooter. I hope if I reach 72 that I will be like her. My friends call my friend "The Young Joan Collins "

A very fortunate lady. Nice story.

rdave13 It is a nice story. She goes to Turkey because all her friends are working and she is lonely. Her mother stays in Edinburgh. She visits her before she goes to Turkey.

I love Turkey and have been on Holiday to Marmaris and Icmeler (next resort) about 8 times. I must admit, however, I have never had the courage to get on a scooter on those roads. Well done the lady in question.

I must get out more.

When I saw the thread I thought, "Marmaris Turkey? Is that like Norfolk Bronze?"


My wife, also 72, is very jealous. Wheelchair bound after two strokes she was still on the back of the bike riding round Germany until the second one (she'd have been on the front, but the first one put paid to that!).
