Turkey is a fascinating country full of contrasts and contradictions. It carefully balances between the East and the West, between the past and the present, between secularism and Islam, between wealth and poverty, between chaos and serenity. These fascinating contrasts combined with Turkey's thousands of kilometres of magnificent coast with fine beaches, the guaranteed sunshine, its rich history, and the excellent Turkish cuisine have turned Turkey into an increasingly popular tourist destination.
For more than 40 years, I have been fascinated by Turkey and its people and I spent many vacations touring around Turkey. During my trips to Turkey, I encountered friendliness and hospitality that has become rare in other parts of the world. In addition, the excellent public transport system makes travelling around Turkey not only very comfortable but actually a real pleasure. This website is primarily intended to share my travel experiences in Turkey and to show my photo albums with the thousands of pictures that I shot.
An additional goal of the website is to guide fellow travellers who plan to spend their holidays in Turkey, be it by travelling around the country or by just spending a beach vacation in a seaside hotel. In either case, it is worth being informed about the country's rich history and culture. Above all this website is to honour the generous people that I met when travelling through Turkey.
