  1. Thanks Ken. I don't care much for celebrities, as much as for people who are interesting and educated. I love mixing with people and exchanging ideas and learning from others as well as teach others... intellectual stimulation.. this exchange is more what I'm looking for. :-) I don't want to end up in a mainly young people's place who only want to party and that's it, not fond of a frivolous and superficial environment. That's what I mean.
  2. Thank you Ken. I was also planning on moving there by the end of next summer. I'm moving from Canada maybe in May, but will probably (nothing is finalized yet, I'm still seeing what and how to do it) stay in France or Italy for a couple of months before moving to Turkey. I might do Alanya anyway as I've joined a FBK group of Alanya expats and ''made friends'' with a couple of people who work online like I plan to do. However did not plan on staying long-term if the Canadian girl is right about people in general there. Also, the recent deaths of three Russian tourists at three different resorts in Alanya (one of whom had her body returned without organs to her parents' dispair), kind of scared me a bit. I will definitely check out Kas and the other three spots you told me about. Thank you. Even here in Canada I don't have that many friends but the couple I have are very smart, educated and we have very stimulating conversations and learn from each other. That's what I like. The place needs to be dog-friendly... Think it will be hard to find an apartment accepting dogs? I also plan on volunteering with strays. I can't help it, I love dogs and horses. Thank you.
  3. Hi, I'd like to move to turkey for a while. I'm single with a (big) dog. I was thinking of Alanya but after reading another post (I had posted a reply but it disappeared), I'm not sure I'd like to go there anymore. I'm looking for a place where interesting people live, whether Turkish or expats. Intelligent, educated and interesting. I was recently told by a fellow Canadian that Alanya is not ideal as it's a party, touristy place and that - her words not mine: "cheap people live there" .. not sure what she meant. Also, I'm terrified of earthquakes and the seismic map shows that the area of Alanya, Mersin, etc. is not at risk of big ones, just small wiggles. I have no idea of crime rates in different areas. About me: I'm not super young, but I'm still far from retirement. Not looking for a party place but more of a nice place with authentic people who are not looking at you like a tourist or a walking wallet. I have no desire to date or anything (in process of getting divorced, so I want no romance whatsoever for quite some time..). I just need a beautiful place, not far from beach, can be hills, where I can make interesting and educated friends. I like people and making friends. I speak no turkish but will want to learn. My dog needs to be safe as well so not far from a place where I could find a good vet. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.
