My friend Margaret went to Turkey two weeks ago. She is there for another four weeks. I was looking at the weather for Marmaris Turkey on the bbc website. Its over 100f there this week. What are your views on this type of climate. Good or bad. Looking forward to your views.

Don't know how good or bad it is but I have also been watching it as my son and partner are going there this weekend for a couple of weeks and we are going there mid September. We have just come back from Fuengirola where it was reaching mid 90's during the day and we survived that O.K. You just have to remember to protect your skin, especially your head, and stay well hydrated. I don't think I would like it any hotter than that.

Too hot for me (its over 100 degrees all this week so says beeb website). My tomato plants would love it :0)

Big strain on the heart - it has to constantly pump the blood supply through the smaller capillaries at the skin to cool it with sweat evaporation.

No problem for a healthy person, but if there is any weakness it may find it.

It is also very uncomfortable and debilitating unless you like that sort of thing!

Bring it on!!!!

If I had the money to up sticks to a warmer climate, I would.

I heard a cloud expert on the radio this morning - he says clear blue skies everyday get a bit boring. One of the attractions of the UK is the changeable climate.

I been to Marmaris once - very nice place, people, food and climate. I expect the standard of living for the natives is not too good though. However, I would go again tomorrow given half a chance. I would holiday there several times a year given the money. However TOH is not a good flyer.

No complaint about the dry 17 degrees C here.

"clear blue skies everyday get a bit boring. "

I can vouch for that.

I spent two years in South Arabia, Lowest temperature recorded while I was there 87 deg, and that was just a coup[le of times, at night.

It also only rained three times. and on each occasion we all rushed out and stripped to the waist!

Enjoy it but be aware of the risks. After spending years abroad and thinking that once I was nice and bronzie I would be immune to the effects of the sun. I now find I am continually having to have bits of my skin and flesh removed because of cancer. So take my advice and cover up as much as you can especially your head and face.

Blue skies boring? Oh no! I spent a couple of years in Oman and absolutely loved every minute. Had to stop work when temperature got above 50deg C.

As Covergirl says "Bring it on!!"
