10 days in total but 8 days on the road. We've reluctantly had to give the western fjords a miss. Plan to drive as little as 30 mins somedays and as long as 3.5 hours other days. Usually a 2 hour drive on average each day which is manageable. Should be fine with 2 weeks.

Theres a restaurant called Pastar. Its brilliant and remarkably cheap for how good it is.

If you want drugs go to Reggae Reggae Bar and speak to the owners.

Top foreign office tip:

Terrorism

There is a high threat from terrorism in Turkey and there are active terrorist groups throughout the country. These include domestic religious extremist and ideological groups, and international groups involved in the conflict in Syria. Attacks could be indiscriminate and could affect places visited by foreigners.

Nah Istanbul is relatively safe, nothing will happen. But a bomb doesn't discriminate between races

Kiki's Tavern is worth seeking out for lunch. Greek style outdoor grill. No bookings.
15 min taxi/car journey from the town

Mykonos Town - loads to choose from, M-Eating was class

Kounelas fish taverna is THE place to head to in the town if you want fresh fish. Tables are crammed in and mega busy/hectic, but the seafood was very good.

Get a gyro for lunch from Jimmy's, have a cocktail at Katerinas overlooking Little Venice.

Avra Garden and M-Eating are very good.

Avli Tou Thodori at Platys Gialis beach (10 mins max in a taxi or get the bus, they run into the early hours) was also good.
