An Expat's Experience of Living in Turkey
Newly updated 2nd edition
An Expat’s Experiences of Living in Turkey tells the story of the author Colin Guest, from his relocation to Turkey with his wife in 1989, up to the present time. It was a life-changing move that gave both of them a lifestyle which for many is just a dream. Turkey may be a Muslim country with a culture very different from England, but the author describes how they both found it surprisingly easy to settle in. When they first arrived at Kemer, then a small village on the Mediterranean Coast, they knew just two English-speaking people. Undaunted, they quickly made friends, bought some land, built a house and started to live their dream. And so it began, Colin’s extraordinary Turkish adventure. Sadly, it nearly came to an end when Colin’s wife died tragically at the age of 52. But determined to the stay the course, Colin remained in the country he had come to call his home. It was in Turkey that he fell in love for the second time, meeting a remarkable Turkish lady who would eventually become his wife. Colin Guest was given a second life. This is his story.
