Jack Scott's Turkey Trail

Jack Scott

With such an immense political and cultural heritage, it’s no surprise kaleidoscopic Turkey is such a feast – a prime cut of authenticity, seasoned by the West and spiced by the East. Jack Scott knows a thing or two about the country. He lived there for four years and travelled widely – to Istanbul and along its south-western shores from Izmir to Alanya. In Postcards from the Ege, Scott shares some of his must-sees and personal highlights. Follow Scott’s trail. Come to Turkey.
 
"There are more ancient sites in Turkey than in all of Western Europe and in places like Bodrum and Fethiye, unbroken sunshine is virtually guaranteed from May to October. And despite what you may hear, Turkey remains a low-crime country and one of the safest holiday destinations anywhere: the Syrian border is a very long way from the beaches of the Aegean [the ‘Ege’]."

Jack's postcards entice you with titbits, and make you hungry for more.


Author: Jack Scott

Imagine the absurdity of two openly gay, married middle aged, middle class men escaping the liberal sanctuary of anonymous London to relocate to a Muslim country. I chronicled our exploits with the mad, the sad, the bad and the glad in a blog for the whole world to ignore. Then came the book which became a critically acclaimed best seller. Its success opened out a whole new career for me as an author. Who'd have thought it? Certainly not me. In June 2012, we ended our Anatolian affair and paddled back to Britain on the evening tide, washing up in Norwich, a surprising city in eastern England. I’m sometimes nostalgic for our encounters with the hopeless, the hapless and, yes, the happy go lucky. They gave me an unexpected tale to tell and for this I thank them. The next instalment, Turkey Street, is out now.
