An Expats Experiences of Living in Turkey
This covers details of how as an Englishman, in 1989 I went to work on a 5 Star hotel complex down on the Turkish Mediterranean Coast and the many experiences that happened after my late wife joined me there. As a result of this, shortly afterwards, we decided to have a house built here, which dramatically changed our lives for the better. The book explains the many incidents, some happy, sad, shocking, grief and lastly incredible happiness. Although a Muslim country, we had no problems in living here for over 18 years, until my wife died from cancer. It was during this period of grief, that I was conned out of both money and my car by what I thought was my best Turkish friend. This however, incredible though it may seem, resulted in my experiencing a whole new life on the other side of the country. From living in what some considered in the middle of a field, I am now living very happily in Istanbul with my wonderful Turkish wife. The book offers advice to those both living and thinking of living in Turkey, where in general I have enjoyed a great life, and where I have no thought on leaving.
Turkey
I am a 74 yr old Englishman married to a Turkish lady and living in Istanbul. I love writing and have an e book entitled “An Expats Experiences of Living in Turkey” published on Amazon Kindle. I have also had several articles published in on line magazines and one in a UK expat magazine. I am presently completing my memoir “Follow in the Tigermans Footsteps.”(see www.colinguest.com) This covers my working on mainly high class interior fit-outs to 5 star hotels and palaces in 15 countries spread throughout the Middle East, Asia & North Africa. My memoir gets its name from my love of Tigers, with my adopting one from Care for the Wild for the past ten years.
I have reviewed five books for authors, with my reviews published on Amazon.
Due to my deep concern about nature and the environment, I belong to several organisations related to this. It is due to my love of wild animals, I worked as a volunteer at Wildlife Rescue/Rehabilitation centres in South Africa and Thailand. This I highly recommend to anyone interested in helping wild animals. To me this is a way of giving something back to Wildlife/Nature, which needs all the help it can get.

Positive thoughts give positive results, with negative one giving negative results
