  1. @Natasha> and CONGRATULATIONS.... ....on your recent marriage--You'll be sure to find Turkey Central very helpful, informational, and accomadating and best of wishes towards gaining your citizenship
  2. @Dande>And be wise not to sing "Death Trip" by Steve Harley And Cockney Rebel prior to or while during flight
  3. Yes, Sabahattin and sunny is right concerning having a [slight] difficulty, i.e., a need to aquire a certificate of impediment from the British government. Hopefully, Sabahattin informs us of why it is not wise aside from the above neccesity to get married in Nortern Cyprus as many have done so in the pass... I for one would really like to know afterall information is a key to life's progression
  4. @ces88>You can marry where ever your heart desires And yes, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus is a de facto independant of replublic [of Turkey] and your marriage certificate would certainly be honored in Turkey! Just ensure regardless of where you intend to live as husband and wife that visa's are applied for depending on nationality, etc. Lastly, I'm not sure if you have arranged the events of your marriage already but I encourage you to contact Chris Hall the Operations Manager of Pilot Events, Cyprus. They offer marquee services throughout cyprus as some of my colleagues have gotten married with use of this business. You can click HERE to access the website or email him at [email protected] wedding day and best of luck!
  5. @Angela>Superlative post and astonishing prices! Thanks for the top-notch information!
  6. @Abi> No problem....sometimes I feel like both...ha ha he he Well I pasted the whole article, figuring it may have been under, darn it I forgot the word...oh, "Censorship"...how can I forget after Joz beat it in my head
  7. Hello All: As I was surfing the web, I came up on the below story.... It's a very interesting read and I hope not to offend anyone but it is after all a VERY BIG SOCIAL NIGTHMARE! I'm heading to some TU website to get further information....heck, I just may stay my butt in the USA ***************************************************************************************************ANKARA, Turkey
  8. @screamlead>I'm glad to see things worked out but your a better man than me--I'm with everyone else--he wouldn't get a dime out of me, especially after explanation from my son and the fact that he may have melted the keyboards. All in all, it worked out. In the future, if you ever run into such problems again--NEVER buy a new laptop--there are many cheaper ones, sometimes the same models that have been refurbished.
  9. @scoobydoo>I had the same problem when I lived in Portugal. I suggest you contact your landlord and inform him of the problem, he maybe able to work a deal with you, i.e., providing cleaning solution, reduced rent (good luck:-), or if he own another apartment in close vacinity, he may offer you to move and work a deal with you. It seems the apartment may have been empty for a reason. I was renting a house in Portugal and the mildew was rampant all thoughout mainly because there were many open airways I had to close-up and the house was in a high mildew area, low to sea level, and often humid. I suggest you try the following:1. Wear rubber or latex gloves. Spray the wall with a solution of 1/2 cup (4 fl oz/125 ml) chlorine bleach, 1/3 cup (3 fl oz/80 ml) powder laundry detergent and 1 gallon (4 l) hot water, working from the base of the wall up. (Or you can use a commercial mildewcide, though it's much more expensive than mixing your own.)2. Gently scrub away surface mildew using a plastic scrubber sponge.3. Using the scrubber sponge, rinse thoroughly with fresh water.4. Once dry, consider applying a coat of paint containing an antimildew agent so you don't have to do this again any time soon. Next, I would seriously contact your landlord and have him come witness your problem and ask him if he would be willing to pay for the items to have the apartment clean and be very tactful while discussing it with him afterall it's his place and I'm sure he would not want the mildew to get any worse--Good Luck!
  10. @Lucid>Wow, sorry to hear you having such a difficult time... I hope things work out for you! Slightly , but I was wondering if any expats have difficulties with the use of TriCare in TU and what is the process like, i.e, hospital stays, medications, visits, etc? Thanks,
  11. @Devilhawk>Dude are you kidding me, "I'll settle for Adana's weather at the present moment for sure" Wow, Okinawa must have been nice and splendide!
  12. @Devilhawk>Boy, what wouldn't I do to get lost in Adana right now--it's freezing cold in these parts!
  13. @Jamie>You came to the write place! I'm not the Subject Matter Expert (SME) on such question but you'll surely be pointed in the right direction from one of Turkey Central's UK members living in Turkey. Here are some pointers on how to get a better estimate and you can edit your orignal post to include the changes:1. What type of car is it, i.e., model, approximate weight, etc2. Where do you intend to ship the car from in Turkey or give a general location where you'll be staying, example being Izmir, Istanbul, etc. And some things you may consider as well:1. It's fairly easy to ship your car back yourself by putting it on a ferry and shipping if from a EU country once you arrive in turkey unless urgency is of the importance in shipping it back right away.2. Shipping it to Greece on a ferry would be the shortest distance I assume. Lastly, remember to modify your post with a general location of where you'll be working, visiting, or residing, so members can provide a shipping businesss close to you--best of luck and please tell other's about this wonderful English source of information in Turkey.
  14. @Jozsika>NICE and I don't blame ya, it seems like a great tool. Unfortunately most of the foreigners aren't fortunate to have lived and breath TU air for quite some time now but I'm not saying no names "Sunny":-)
  15. @Sunny>"Street map" are you kidding me...the cost of a GPS device would save on many days of traffic frustrations and language barrier problems but I know your joking...ha ha he he. It was crazy when using street maps....oh, the stops, turns, and questions in my best of Turkish tries at the language... I was so humorous and looked like the dumb American that often times they would drive ahead of me to show me the way....geesh--what good and bad times.
  16. I pray all works out for you!

  17. @All>My,my,my how things have changed. Most's GI's would've killed to have such updated techonogy years ago. And to talk about fustrations of being lost in traffic, etc--gesh! Although, I won't have a vehicle when I return to Turkey... I may have to consider aquiring some sort of GPS device while [renting] out and about--thanks for all the input TC members.
  18. @Lucid>Yes, I've been know to be very detailed in postings and responses; therefore, I'll make them plain and simple from now on--promise I hope not to have crazy effects on you any longer--I don't like loosing you in translation...ha ha he he:-) Wow, what a dream, I'm sure it was scary... I guess the "kiss" feeling like your husband's started the earthquke for ya...ha ha he he. I had crazy dreams as well--thanks for sharing.
  19. @Lucid>Wow, I must have been in a serious rush...please excuse the obvious spelling/word usage mistakes--unable to edit for clarity. There were only a couple of places where you tripped over your fingers so I used the spell checker. Great post. Sunny.
  20. @Lucid--hmm, "I was wondering when you were gonna sneak on the reply! Yes, I've been out of town (read my blog) for the past two (2) days...heading home in 1 hour:-) Hmm, I didn't expect such requested-personal insight about my feelings and pleasures, nor can I wholeheartedly reply in open form as others can read-on and critique my personal viewpoints. I assume it would be safe to say, "a tell-all would be much more suited for a meet & greet once I'm in country:-)" Next, ah, yes the old-school sweetheart. I really did her wrong and i can honestly say I did! She really loved and cared about me but my focus was in other areas....looking back, I wish I had been more inclined to spend quality time with her and appreciate what she meat to me. In summary, I'm not a womanizer but a focused individual for task I deem more important at the present time. For example, starting graduate school is my number one priority right now...when i return if the "spark is still there universally, I may seriously consider a more locked-down approach with her; however, if there's nothing there... I'll just be fine with that as well because there are many woman to chooswe from in Turkey:-) And this would seem weird but no, "there aren't many girls in my present to keep you busy, in fact their isn't even one! Lastly, marriage, perhaps one day but she must be a real special lady and I hold no preference to national origin, religion, race, or ethnicity, etc---a good woman is a good woman
  21. @Lizz0o0>Nice to see you opened up and realized the overall quirks of Turkish viz American life--Humor can change the heart for sure:-)
  22. @Lizz0o0>Yes, I agree with both you and Sunny--seems like he has some serious maturity problems and I was unaware that you visited more than once--please excuse me! I'm going to give it to you American style, "drop his a$$:-)"...nah, not really...ha ha he he:-) I think your in for a long and hard winding road of ups and downs with him figuring from your tone and literary speech. Furthermore, he's clearly disallusional about American life, even after you explained it to him and you know what, "it's not likely he'll get it because he's filled with US fasination of big dreams but hopefuly one day of high hopes, linking with follow-through! It's going to be long and difficult process to when and if he ever really mature to as where the lightbuld goes off in his head. And it's obvious he's young and immature where as you know the many difficulties of working hard and living in the U. S. I only hope for both his and your mental well being that something positive comes out of his current "wild imaginative outlook that little effort equals great success"! Girl, stay sane and keep things is perpective for your well being and remember...there are many available Turkish men who would jump at such oppurtunity with open arms but there to will require much effort on your part on whether it's another roller coaster of pain, and suffering or truly your soul mate. Good luck and keep a watchfull eye because your obviously sinking not so fast but your getting shorter and shorter everytime you encounter furhter heartache.
