My Summer in Turkey...

Istanbul, Boshporus, June 2014

We have a famous saying in Turkish "Insanoglu kus misali" which literally translates as 'humanbeings like birds', meaning here one minute there the next. Reflecting on my recent travels in Turkey last month and how I was there only last Sunday having fish by the Bosphorus, easily brought this phrase to mind.

Sigacik, June 2014
I spent fortyfive glorious day traipsing about in different areas of Turkey, visiting ancient cities, watching the sun rise and set over the Mediterranean, the Aegean and the Marmara Seas, eating great food and interacting with the locals - all of these adventures waiting to be told, written and shared so that they may evolve into something more than someone's distant memories.

I plan to share my photographs, experiences and know-how - the Love - here, so that others may do the same and hopefully discover the wonderful surprises Turkey has in store for any visitor to its lands full of history and natural beauty.

For now, I will leave you with a few photos and a message to "stay tuned" for more...
