What made you first decide to visit Turkey?
A friend recommended turkey to us in 1995 she had been before and loved it there so we thought we would give it a try 2 wks B&B £169 in altinkum but to be honest we didnt like it much, but were invited back to attend a wedding so went back in the sept that yr & we loved it there never looked back since its a beautiful country.

I have been to a lot of plces in turkey, Istanbul about 5 times, Altinkum, Kusadasi, Izmir, Dalyan, Pammukale, Urkmez, Side, Belek, Manavgat, Antalya, Icmeler, Bodrum, Selcuk, Soke & a few of the villages around Kusadasi also i spend a lot of time in Yenikoy & Bagarasi (which is Edips village) they are just outside of Soke.
Would you like to visit again? If yes - What is it about Turkey that you love?
Absolutely, we are hoping to move to turkey for good in the next few months. I love everything about turkey including the people & also my family one of the things both myself & Edip miss at the moment is watching our 2 nieces & nephew growing up although we speak to them alot on the telephone its not the same as being there.
Did you feel safe in Turkey?
Yes of course to be honest i feel safer in Turkey than i do in England.
