I am British by birth and I first came to Turkey over 25 years ago and was instantly smitten by the amazing,rich,fascinating,infuriating tapestry that is Turkey.It's culture,traditions,natural beauty,it's history and modernity and of course it's wonderfully warm hospitable people.Oh and the great food! I have now lived here since 1999 and during this time have lived in several places but now live in a small town close to the Black Sea where I am an English language teaching assistant.My first few years were spent working in the tourism sector in the Bodrum area where I truly came to understand how darned rude and ignorant some tourists can be! I was a destination expert on another well known travel site for several years but left when it became apparent that they were happy to condone misuse of the forum by certain members when those members had business connections useful to the owners of the web site :( and failed to control the overt and covert advertising and self-promotion-even when notified. Well I am not for sale and neither is my knowledge.I give it freely and with altruism to all who ask,purely for the love of my adopted homeland of Turkey,that those coming here will hopefully have the best possible experience and come to love it as much as I do. We now have private message service again but you can also contact me on- 1907sarikanarya81 @ (e mail company) gmail dot com sorry I have to write it like this otherwise it gets removed by the filters :) Happy and safe travels!
Any aspect of travel here in Turkey,I'll always help if I can!
