Power cuts in Turkey and what to consider

The subject for this blog post came up all by itself when our office this morning went from lively and productive to "hey, who cut the electricity?".

As i am writing this blog post a major part of Turkey is without any electricity due to reasons that are currently unknown. 
Flights are grounded, offices closing down and everyone is waiting for the power grid to come back on.

Most people here in Turkey speculate why this has happened and social media are full of speculations and the twitter hash tag #buradaelektrikyok (there is no electricity here) is currently Turkeys most used.

Luckily Internet and mobile phone networks are not affected, but charging devices might be...

We here at 2Base wants to take another approach and instead talk about what this means for property owners in Turkey.

Spring is the best time of year in Alanya

For this blog post we had a little chat with Yildirim Kabasakal who is responsible for all service related questions and tasks at 2Base. 

We wanted to know about his best tips for restaurants, advise for property owners and a lot more.

If you have ever visited our office or send us an email, you will most likely already know who he is.

Lets hear what he has to say...

Winter, spring. summer or autumn: Which is your favorite time of year?
Definitely spring. Spring is the sign that summer is coming soon. I like this period because it is more quite and not so hot than summer. 
During spring the air and sea is very clean and it is a great time to swim and play beachvolley which i enjoy a lot.

Where would you go for a Sunday brunch?
On the castle almost on the very top there is a place named Muhtarin yeri. There breakfast is the best and very traditional with fresh bread, eggs, omelette, vegetables, different kinds of cheese and of course fresh tea. Sundays are very busy but the place is great and i can recommend it. From the restaurant there is view all the way to Gazipasa.

You have been living more than 20 years in Alanya. Can you offer any insiders tip on best things to do?
