ABOUT ME

Hi! I’m Kimberly.

Welcome to

The Art of Living in Turkey

I have fallen in love with this country and continue to do so. My hope is that you are also able to fall in love with it through this blog. When you come visit, you’ll love it even more!

how i became an Expat

Since  I was a child, I wanted to live in Asia. There was something about it  that drew me though, at the time, I didn’t know what that was. A friend  moved here and I realized I didn’t know anything about Turkey. So I started researching.

I still remember the first time I came to Turkey in 2018 with my best friend…

It was as if I had come home. It didn’t make rational or logical  sense. I could just feel it inside. After two short weeks, I returned to  America with the desire in my heart to move…some way, some how.

It was 1 year later that I was able to get everything in order to  make the move. My ducks were in a row. My “i’s” were dotted. My “t’s”  were crossed. And I am still on the journey…. Exploring this beautiful  country, one city at a time.

So here I am. Living my best life. I live in Istanbul and get to  explore the world all around. I hope I can help you fall in love with  this beautiful place as well!

Exploring this beautiful country, one city at a time

Everyone loves to travel. To dream of vacations and see exotic places. For some people, beaches are their thing or maybe mountains. Maybe you’re more of a retreat person or an extreme adventurer.

But sadly, we don’t always go on those adventures we dream of.

At least I know I didn’t. I always wanted to travel but it wasn’t until much later in life that I really started traveling abroad like I wanted to. In the last 10 years, I have been able to go to over 17 different countries.

I want this blog to inspire you to go too!

Let’s figure out how you can go together! I’ll share tips on how to enjoy your time and plan your trips but also how you can mentally prepare and get excited.
