    Cukurbagli got a reaction from Fada in Health insurance for 65 year old in Turkey   
    Hello Fada
    They mean that the tapu needs to be signed, stamped and and a document called a "tapu kaydı" given to you. All this is to prove that the tapu is really in your name. They might just stamp it with a new date or they might issue a new tapu. I just did this with my tapu about six weeks ago, just go to your tapu office and they'll do it, mine took about an hour and cost me 11 lira and I was given a new tapu too.

    The problem is that your passport expiry date is too soon. Your passport must expire at least six months after your residence permit will expire.

    Cukurbagli got a reaction from Ken Grubb in Bored out of my fr3aking mind in Gebze!   
    Hi GebzeRM, welcome to Turkey Central. The only Gebze I know of is in Kocaeli, is that where you are? Away from the southwestern area of Turkey and in the more rural Anatolian areas you are unlikely to find much alcohol for sale openly in shops. Many restaurants are alcohol free too. The only thing I can suggest is go to a larger town when you have your residence permit and buy a few cases to stock up with. I made my own wine for a few years quite successfully but my vines developed some sort of disease.

    Cukurbagli reacted to angelaturkey in The truth about Humpty Dumpty and the French Version   
    According to the Oxford English Dictionary the term "humpty dumpty" referred to a drink of brandy boiled with ale in the 17th century. The riddle probably exploited, for misdirection, the fact that "humpty dumpty" was also eighteenth-century reduplicative slang for a short and clumsy person. The riddle may depend on the assumption that, whereas a clumsy person falling off a wall might not be irreparably damaged, an egg would be. The rhyme is no longer posed as a riddle, since the answer is now so well known.

    Here is the text of Humpty, Dumpty - - French style - - 

    "Un petit d'un petit 
    S'étonne au hall 
    Un petit d'un petit 
    Ah! degrés de folles 
    Un dol de qui ne sort cesse 
    Un dol de qui ne se mène 
    Qu'importe un petit d'un petit 
    Tout Gai de Reguennes." 

    Homme petit d'homme petit, s'attend, n'avale 
    Homme petit d'homme petit, à degrés de bègues folles 
    Anal deux qui noeuds ours, anal deux qui noeuds s'y mènent 
    Coup d'un poux tome petit tout guetteur à gaine

    Cukurbagli got a reaction from Karam in Comparison between Antalya, Bursa, Fethiye, Izmir & Bodrum   
    Advice on where you should go to live here in Turkey is extremely subjective, you should come and stay in each of them, it's not a good idea to ask us to choose for you because you will surely be disappointed.
     
    Those cities you quote are very different both in size and ambience. My choice would be Izmir, Antalya, Bodrum, Fethiye, Bursa but I am retired and like the sea. In fact I live in a village near Kaş by the sea halfway between Antalya and Fethiye.
     
    Come and live here for a while and make your own mind up, it is very unlikely that you will get employment or a business set up that will provide you with an income you can live on inside three years, if at all. Sorry to be gloomy.

    Yes there is a low pressure system over the Mediterranean between Libya and southern Greece moving eastwards. It will move east north east to cross the coast of Turkey. High winds, heavy rain and the possibility of waterspouts/tornadoes are forecast.

    There are as many ways to block a phone number from calling you as there are makes and models of phone. If you do a google search on "block someone from calling my ********* phone" you will find lots of answers. Insert the make and model of your phone and delete the asterisks.
    Hope this is successful for you.

    Cukurbagli got a reaction from Ken Grubb in Relationship   
    Hi Deandreo, welcome to Turkey Central. Interesting question but I think we need more information before anybody can make an educated answer. 
    1. Have you actually met in real life or is this an internet love story?
    2. How long have you known each other?
    3. How much time have you spent actually in each other's company?
    4. What, in your mind, is the best outcome for this situation?

    Cukurbagli got a reaction from Quizmaster in Relocating from Alanya to Kas   
    Hi Sean, as Ken says I live in Kaş, well to be accurate, in a village a couple of kilometers inland behind what is known as the sleeping giant (uyan dev, the cliff overlooking Kaş), but pretty much all my shopping and socialising is down in Kaş town. The winters are slowly becoming less dead during the day because a few more people stay in Kaş all year round but evenings are very quiet unless you're attending one of the organised events. We have a free cinema that shows international films with Turkish subtitles and Turkish films often with English subtitles.
    I can attest to the Kaş trance effect, I've seen it happen to Ken quite a few times and his end of a conversation dwindles to a complete stop quite often.
    Kaş is surrounded on all sides by nature, the south side being the sea. In the cooler months there are many walking trips organised around parts of the Lycian Way or particular areas of historical significance.
    You should come for a few days in late September or October and have a look around.

    The website for Kahramanlar Turizm ferry is http://www.meisferrylines.com/ and for the Meis Express ferry is https://www.meisexpress.com/en/home, tickets can be booked and paid for online on both.
    It would be a good idea to chech the availability of the Meis - Kaş option.

    Cukurbagli got a reaction from John Sati in Lycian trail can anyone help me?   
    Hi SneeSnee, welcome to Turkey Central. The areas that you are interested in are well populated and the dogs are liable to be friendly . Most goatherders with big dogs will be up in the higher areas (yayla or high pastures) at this time of years, it's cooler and there is more for the goats to eat. I would advise you to carry a mobile phone and have someone local that you can call in an emergency but I think you will probably find that everyone you meet is friendly.
    Although at the moment we are not having particularly hot weather it is likely to become a lot warmer soon, daytime temperatures could be reaching 45C so make sure you carry plenty of water and wear a hat.
    Hope you have a great time and interesting walks.

    Cukurbagli got a reaction from Matthew G in Changing surname   
    There is no rule that says that you have to change your name, neither first nor surname. And another complication is changing your passport, bank accounts, driving licence, tapu, insurances etc etc, the list goes on. You might well think it is all too much bother.
    As for your question, Turkish keyboards also have a W so I wonder who told you and how accurate their information is, can't see a real need myself.

    Cukurbagli got a reaction from Misty E in learning turkish language   
    Hi Fusion, welcome to Turkey Central. Both Ken and I have tried very hard to learn Turkish. He comes from America and I'm from UK,, we both found things easy and hard. I was particularly struck with how easy the grammar is to start with, all the verbs have similar endings and there is no gender in naming things so I loved how easy that was. Building a vocabulary is the hardest part in any language I think.
    Your first language can make it easy or not so, depending on your own sentence structure. We English speaking people have the verb in various places in a sentence whereas any language that puts the verb at the end of a sentence has a head start with Turkish. Good luck with it.

    Hi Amanda, welcome to Turkey Central. You seem to have broken all the rules and now it's time to pay the price. You can get a Turkish friend to talk to your landlord, if he is sympathetic and you are very lucky you might get some time to pay what you owe.
    The overstay on the visa is much more serious, when the authorities find out you will definitely be banned from returning for at least five years, whether they will send you back and whether they will allow you to take your things I don't know.
