Turkey - a land of contrasts

Turkey is indeed a land of contrasts - and is an interesting place. The countryside is beautiful and the sunsets are spectacular!! This is indeed a place where East meets West. The people hold onto many of their traditions which is a good thing, but you can also see where the western influence takes hold which sometimes it is quite sad seeing a McDonalds amongst the tiny little streets but suppose that is what happens.

Friendly people

Yes you may as a woman get pestered sometimes by men...but my mum always tells me the time you need to start worrying is when they stop doing it - suppose she has a point!

The people are very friendly and work very, very hard to earn a living. They have strong family values which I like and a genuine interest in people which in some places is lost.

you must visit!

my partner was initally not to keen on visiting Turkey - he thought it would be dirty and not very nice (for some reason!) but he soon changed his mind the first time we visited!

I think the service is second to none only to the USA - nothing is too much trouble and the people will make your visit special
