We arrived in Turkey for the @inflowtravel summit not knowing a single person in the group but left a week later with many new friends and a teary farewell. Many shared fascinating personal stories and we experienced extraordinary kindness from fellow Instagrammers and vloggers. Thank you, @inflowtravel, @gloriahotels and @atlasglobal for putting this wonderful event together. I'm tagging these talented and humble folks here so go and check out their accounts.

My first time ever touching down at Antalya and exploring the beautiful old town.

I'm still in Turkey on a packed schedule with the daughter running around photographing fellow social media influencers for her new iPad photo album called "Faces of Instagram". I have to say my job is never boring. In this case, I got the opportunity to work with the lovely @monicabeatrice for her collaboration with @phaseeight.

A quick snapshot of Salisbury before departing for Istanbul. I'm knocking back coffee by the jug while typing this out. We're in Turkey for the @inflowtravel summit. More on my Stories...

I don't think there's any country in the world where you'll find people apologising for their dogs barking at you while you're standing outside their front gate covertly (ok, blatantly) photographing their wisteria.

Yet another Ye Olde Wonky building.

Photobombed by a pigeon ๐Ÿฆ. At least it was better than being pooped ๐Ÿ’ฉ on.

I'm absolutely thrilled for @loisavery's newly revamped website which looks just ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป. I'm equally proud that this photo appears on the cover page. We had to be quick shooting this as @loisavery was sitting on a ledge and a suspicious looking man kept hovering closer and closer to us.... it was a bit like a comedy action ๐ŸŽฅ movie.

Pre Instagram, I knew nothing about wisteria hysteria, flat lays, strategically arranging legs on the bed, pretend that we all serve breakfast in bed with a huge bunch of flowers minus a vase, hover/stalk/loiter for the perfect "strideby" to complete a shot of a facade, turning my back ๐Ÿ‘ instead of facing the camera in front of a spectacular backdrop. All in the name of.....Instagram.

Any minute now, Snow White will skip out of the front door singing a song with the 7 dwarves trailing behind.

Here's a snippet of the shoot with @monicabeatrice for @phaseeight. I still can't bring myself to say I've shot someone even if it's with a camera ๐Ÿ“ท, not the weapon. Pop along to her blog to see more.

You boil vegetables or meat but until I've arrived in the U.K., I've never heard of the word being used to describe the weather. So apparently, lots of people will be "boiling" in today's heatwave. By the way, my very British daughter complained that yesterday's 17ยฐC was "boiling" too.
