Writer looks back on Turkey holiday that ended with quarantine in the 1980s – myicmeler.net

Holidaymakers seeking autumn Turkish sunshine now have to quarantine. Nothing new there says Travel Editor Nigel Thompson as he recalls an eventful trip in 1987.

“Certainly. Where?”

“The cheap part.”

It was September 1987 and we were in a travel agency in Sheffield, where I was a news sub-editor on the Star evening newspaper, and my wife Debbie a ward sister at the city’s Children’s Hospital.

We’d been married a year, had two weeks off in ­October, and wanted sunshine, history and a bit of adventure. #myicmeler #DailyMirror
