Discover Turkey
through the eyes
of an expat

I  came to Istanbul for the first time in 2018 and immediately it felt  like home. Though I had never been, I remember always wanting to go when  I was a child. When it finally happened I found it astonishing that  this place that is so different from all I have ever known, felt like  HOME.

I hope you enjoy this blog as I share stories about living in this  beautiful country and tips on how to travel well here yourself.
