News Update – 14th August 2017
The Eid al–Adha (Feast of Sacrifice) and Victory Day celebration has just been extended to 10 days in Turkey.
It is possible that the State-owned banks will be shut from 26th August through until Tuesday 5th September. Although we have an army of ATM’s here in Gundogan, there is a risk that they may not be topped up during this time and could run out of money.
So please plan ahead and have cash available during the celebration period. These are two big events in the calendar so have fun and enjoy this time.
Whilst the following travel update does not include those of you travelling from Bodrum Airport back to the UK, it does at least show that moves are underway to remove the ban on electronic items being carried in cabin baggage on flights from Turkey.

Dear Gossip customers and our special friends,
As you have just read in our recent Facebook post, we have just completed 4 very successful years here at Gossip Bistro – Gündoğan. From our humble beginnings where we were the only hospitality business on what was then a new development here in Gundogan, we would like to thank you all for your support and custom during the progressive changes we introduced during this time.
The harbour area has grown in this time with new restaurants and shops, but they are yet to capture the special atmosphere that you have helped us create and maintain. During this time, we have met some very nice people and we find it impossible to explain it in more detail. Because of our responsibilities and the energy we have put into the business, it has physically drained us.
Our combined powers and talents helped us bring something special and unique to the area. At times we were sad, at times we were happy, but we were mostly happy. Whatever people say about Gossip, they need to know one thing that this has been made with lots of hard work and energy. There was a good result in the end and we were so happy to run the business.
There are lots of people to name and thank for making this happen but this is not possible, so we thank you all together.
After careful and thoughtful consideration, we have both decided that it is time for us to move on and we have now sold Gossip to new owners and we wish them all the best for the future.
We would like to wish you all the very best for the future and that you will continue to enjoy your holidays on the Bodrum Peninsula.
With our very best regards,
Volkan, Carmen and Benji.
Please keep in touch as we will still be in Gundogan and would like to see you.
Carmen Çetinkaya, Volkan Çetinkaya
