  1. Today
  2. If I was making my living in tourism I would be shaking my head in amazement at recent moves by the government. When you are having your worst year in recent history blocking a website that helps hotels fill rooms is hardly the best of moves. Each customer that comes to Turkey will spend money here even if the hotel agency fee is banked in Europe somewhere. They will earn nothing from tourists that go to Greece.
  3. This is another move which brings Turkey into the international news for the wrong reasons. It will not help investment in the country or Tourism.
  4. Yesterday
  5. I wouldn't blame yourself, although I think it would be normal for someone in your situation to feel that way. Regarding what the court would do, that would be impossible to say. Your best option would be to contact a lawyer.
  6. Last week
  7. I sent you a private message with contact info of a travel company which can pick you up at the cruise ship terminal and take you to Izmir.
  8. Hi penny, if the season is Summer you go to beach. Çeşme is very beautiful. Generally izmir is beautiful but in the summer, izmir is very hot. if you are a christian, you can visit Virgin Maria.
  9. Thanks Ken this sounds great. I look forward to having the time to play with it
  10. I think this video does a good job at explaining why foreigners, like me, come to Turkey, and can't seem to leave.
  11. Hi Pete, I saw your post a few weeks back, sorry I didnt get back to you. I can't think of anywhere off hand and after chatting with the expat group today everyone was at a bit of a loss. There are only a few UK members in the group and none of them have made the application. There is a blogger that recently applied with her husband in Fethiye or Marmaris. Its a little vague but you may be able to write to her direct for some advice.. She has a FB page - I think there is a link on her blog. https://livingtheturkishdream.com/2016/10/16/submitting-the-visa-application/ Jane
  12. It is appalling how you say so many emlaks resort to this tactic. Thank you for your good wishes. Angela x
  13. Beautiful 2-bed 2-balcony apartment with all furniture included - overlooking large swimming pool - 10 minute walk to the beach and 5 minutes to shops, bars and restaurants for £40,000 or 48,000 Euros or 186,000 TL. The complex used to be a hotel but 6 years ago they sold all apartments privately - mine was the first and it was also the show flat. New washing machine this week and also a new frost-free fridge freezer - both with a -year guarantee. 2 x sleep sofas in the living room - new last year. 1 x double bed and 2 x single beds - all beds have storage below. I spent hundreds of TL to have shutters on all the windows and air conditioning/heating in every room. The only reason I am selling is that I am moving to another apartment in Side that has an indoor and outdoor pool, a fitness centre and the apartment itself has 2 x bathrooms. Further details and photos on this website = http://www.sideestateagent.com/ilan.php?id=260 but the price is now only £40,000
  14. Ken - the Manavgat market days are every Monday and Thursday. Monday's one is held over the bridge and first street to the right. Thursday's market is before the bridge and alongside the school, walk up that road a couple of blocks. They have the same vendors as the Side market which is on a Saturday but the Side one is far more manageable as it is smaller.

  22. Hello, I have a homework for the English language course, I must ask a question and get an answer. Thanks for your answer in advance. You can find my question below: Where are the three places which there is the most earthquakes in Turkey? Thanks again and having good days.
  23. I did not go last year. When I asked, the things I was interested were not there and we had some health problems at the time. I would be likely to visit this year though is there is one. The German and Netherlands comments were a bit tongue-in-cheek.
  24. At least locally, my address seems to be known as "where the foreigner lives!"
  25. Hello, We are trying to stop the sale of my fathers plot in Turkey(relatives are trying to sell) and we are in Canada. My name, my sisters and my moms names are on the Tapu, but before my dad passed, he gave power of attorney to my aunt, who has also passed. One family member is refusing to give a vekaletname. If 2 out of 3 people are present to give a vekaletname, can we still stop the sale, without the third person who is refusing to give a vekaletname? We even have a lawyer involved. Much thanks for your replies.
