    It's that time again!, for on Wednesday morning we drive 100m to the airport - and then a four hour flight to Turkey for my annual meerschaum drooling-over vacation :cool:. Just done my packing :- 300grams of tobacco, three pipes, a bunch of cleaners, four boxes of Swan Vestas, that's the essentials! - the rest I leave to 'the estate manager' (Mrs. OT)LOL!. Turkey is a great place for pipes, if you get to know how to avoid the cheap tourist pipe sellers, you can see lots of stunning examples of the carvers art, but oddly enough - not many places sell decent tobacco!, last year I ran out of the tobacco that I took with me a couple of days before going home, and walked all round Alanya looking to buy some.....a couple of places had some Captain Cack...er...Black! which I could not bring myself to buy!, and one place had a pouch of something called 'Seven Seas' which I did buy - and it was not too bad....as an emergency ration!. I'll be moving around a bit but should be able to use hotel internet conections, my old phone does just what phones always did - just calls LOL, but Mrs. OT has bought one of those fancy little tablet thingies, and says I can have a go on it.
    Cheers, OT'

    That's cool! Turkey seems like a very exotic place to my way of thinking. Would be fascinating to see that part of the world. In the meantime, I will continue to dream of vacationing to that fair isle that you inhabit. It's my ancestral home, after all.

    Enjoy your trip!

    Sounds like a good time. My wife had a great time last year. She especially enjoyed Reina. Is TT Tobacco Shop any good? Looks pretty cool.

    Enjoy your trip, and remember you can always find room to fit one more in pipe on the way back so let the PAD consume your soul!

    Everyone know that the reasonable thing to do when travelling to Turkey is to buy meerschaum pipes as gifts for all of the addicts on PSF. I'll let you know my address once you're back...

    On a serious note, have a great time. You're getting out of here at a good time!
