An Expat's Experiences of Living in Turkey

By Colin Guest

Biography & memoir, Travel | eBook


My book covers 25 years experiences during my living in Turkey. It all started with my accepting a married status contract to work on a hotel complex down on the Mediterranean Coast. This being near what is now the popular resort town of Kemer, Antalya. At the time neither I or my now late wife had any knowledge of Turkey, except it was a Muslim country. To my surprise I found the area where I was working to be very green with beautiful mountain scenery and fantastic beaches. A short time after my wife joined me I was shocked when she suggested we buy a plot of land and have a house built. As we found the Turkish people very helpful and hospitable, I had no hesitation in agreeing with her idea. In the book is advice on things one should take care of before buying or having a house built. It also covers the Good and the Bad events we went through over the years, and ends with how I came to enjoy a completely new and wonderful life here in Turkey.

I am a 74 yr old Englishman married to a Turkish lady and living in Istanbul. I love writing and have an ebook entitled “An Expat's Experiences of Living in Turkey” published on Amazon Kindle. I have also had several articles published in online magazines and one in a UK expat magazine. I am presently completing my memoir "Follow in the Tigerman's Footsteps." (see www.colinguest.com) This covers my working on mainly high class interior fit-outs to 5 star hotels and palaces in 15 countries spread throughout the Middle East, Asia & North Africa. My memoir gets its name from my love of Tigers, with my adopting one from Care for the Wild for the past ten years. I have reviewed five books for authors, with my reviews published on Amazon. Due to my deep concern about nature and the environment, I belong to several organisations related to this. It is due to my love of wild animals, I worked as a volunteer at Wildlife Rescue/Rehabilitation centres in South Africa and Thailand. This I highly recommend to anyone interested in helping wild animals. To me this is a way of giving something back to Wildlife/Nature, which needs all the help it can get.
