About The Art of Living in Turkey

The Art of Living in Turkey was started by Kimberly in 2021 but really started writing more seriously the end of 2022.

The goal of this blog is to help its readers feel inspired to visit this amazing country as well as learn more about this country that much of the Western world doesn’t know well.

This is accomplished through product reviews, itineraries, travel tips, and stories of others who live in Turkey.

Since 2019, I have been gaining first-hand experience of what it means to be an expat living abroad. There are both pros and cons and I am here to share it all with you.

I am passionate about helping people truly see Türkiye as it isn’t what I thought it would be like when I first came. It isn’t the Middle East but it also isn’t Europe, though some parts resemble it more.

I am passionate about inspiring people to chase their dreams and travel the world. Every trip I have ever taken has made me a more compassionate and caring person, which I think the world needs a little more of these days.

The Art of Living in Turkey features my personal experiences and those of my guest writers.

I strive to create authentic, quality content to help you have the best vacation in Turkey or the smoothest transition as you move.
