I arrived in Bozcaada having done little research other than listening to Demetri Kakmi's Motherland on ABC TV (Australia's) radio program about his childhood here. Intriguing enough to make me detour to this off the tourist map island on my way to Istanbul
Straight away I felt like Lisa's was the perfect spot to while away the afternoon watching the world go by. The pizza was great, as was the half bottle of wine on my first night made even better by chatting with Lisa (a fellow Aussie) and getting her advice on stuff to do.
Unsurprisingly most businesses in Bozcaada are not English speaking or geared to english speaking tourists and so finding LIsa was an added bonus. Plus she organised an afternoon boat trip with a local fisherman for me which was awesome. There is little tourism or tours - like you see in Fethiye or Bodrum or other places that expect tourists to want boat trips, so this was great.
After my boat trip I spent another evening at Lisa's dining on brushetta and haloumi, a Corvus (local red - great quality _ Karga 2010) and finished with a real cappucino (yes - I mean real - not nescafe!) and a local sweet dessert. All lezetli (delicious! one of my count on one hand Turkish words!).
