    why did you move to turkey sibel?

    • Sevim, So many reasons- personal and work related. I have lived all over the place: Turkey, Azerbaijan, Russia, Vietnam, US, New Zealand, Australia … The last time I moved away was in 2005: I lived in AU, and then moved to Vietnam for 1.5 yr. I want to raise my daughter internationally as well. I want her to speak at least 4 languages fluently by age 18.

      For my book 2 in The Lone Gladio series (Trilogy) I have several countries in the plot(s)- Chiba, Turkey And Cape Verde. For my books I do travel and get real info for places/people.

      For my journalism work: Iran & Turkey as the hot spots for the next 2-to-4 years, are tremendously important. I get to travel and meet my sources in person- there is no other way nowadays with emails and phones tapped.

      I could cite dozens of more reasons of course- but this should suffice by now. We love it here so far, but probably in another year or two there will be other destinations.
