About Me


13769454_10154989631694008_2531264223925441309_nI’m a Londoner by birth, a cockney in fact from Canning Town originally.  Aged 20, I moved ‘up west’ where I lived, worked and honed my office skills & telephone voice. London is and always will be one of my most favorite places in the world and I miss it.

Turkey has my heart. It’s where I lived for 10 years and where I learned all about unconditional love & close knit family.

I love to travel, to see new things, experience new cultures, discover new foods and generally learn more about the planet we live on.  I love Turkey and am quite happy discovering all it has to offer. It is vast and there are plenty of interesting places to visit so my wanderlust can be contained within it, for a while. So far, I have been to some absolutely amazing places but……. I’m not done yet!

Other loves include Ancient History (visiting archaeological sites), Food (eating not cooking), Writing (articles, blogs, lyrics, scripts, poetry), Reading (I’m a bibliophile), Music (can’t imagine life without it) and Photography (I’ll shoot anything).

Things I have been called: Shop Assistant, Secretary, PA, Reflexologist, Database Manager, Investigator, Columnist, Editor, Sales Director, Mum

Now I’m an Entrepreneur, Author, Scriptwriter, Complect Coach AND language loving freedom hacker!

Languages I speak: English, Turkish & a little Spanish.

Stupid things I have done:

Gone for an interview as a masseur, believing it to be a genuine masseur’s position (I’m sure you know what I’m talking about)

Fell off a mountain

Turned down tickets for a Bruce Springsteen concert

Last but not least, I’m tall, I’m a Virgo and a Chinese Tiger, Mother Nature is my Goddess and I love trees. My mind goes a mile a minute and I keep a pen and pad by my bed. I’m also very nosy so please, now that you know me, tell me a little something about you 🙂

    I see you are in Almeria? I took my Grandad there for a holiday, gosh must have been around 2002 or thereabouts. Have some great memories of the place and had a fabulous day with him at the ranch where they used to film the spaghetti westerns (can;’t remember the name).

    I intend to have a good browse through your photos later 🙂

  10. I must say I like what I’ve so far but the thing that put a smile on my face this morning was that you are from Canning Town..

    I myself am a Turk that grew in Custom House (so close), just felt nice to ‘meet’ some from the East End of London.

    • Very close indeed 🙂 I am in Urfa at the minute – I do have internet but I’m having to fight the whole family for a look in!! As soon as I get some time, or when I get back to Didim, I will have a read of your blog – looking forward to it. Nice to connect 🙂

  11. Hi! Just discovered your blog and signed up for it! Am stuck at home in Istanbul with foot in plaster so this is an ideal moment to discover new blogs and enjoy them!

    • Oh nooooooooo!! A year ago almost to the day, I too had my foot in plaster and went stir crazy!! Really sympathise with you.

      Thanks for joining me and wishing you a speedy recovery 🙂
