with love from Bodrum (1987)

with love from Bodrum

Simon & Hiliary, Weather hotter than tenerife often over 100°F. Bacardi not so cheap but Raki (Like pernod) is. Lots of sailing and windsurfing done out here, Sailing holidays very reasonable. The sun is helping the cartlidge scar to fade quite nicely. Hope there are more IN’s than OUT’s. See you soon Andy & Kev

Lots of information in this status update – the weather features of course, since we Brits are always so fascinated by non-stop hot sunshine!  The price of various drinks is also something we tend to be interested in as well.

The picture is of the iconic Bodrum castle and the beautiful surrounding scenery ensures that the area continues to be a popular holiday destination.

Postmarked ‘BODRUM 30 VII 87’ the card carries a 150 Lira stamp; one of a set of three issued in April 1987 which highlighted road safety.

Andy (who has written the card) was at University with my husband; I got to know Andy soon after I met Simon, over 30 years ago; then, through Andy, we met Kevin. We all had several holidays together (one in Tenerife) and still see both of them and their respective families regularly.  Andy, Kevin and Simon all run their own businesses – hence the ‘more IN’s than OUT’s’ comment.
