Turkey Travel Planner is dedicated to the Turkish people, who have shown me such wonderful hospitality and friendshipover the last five decades.
I went to Turkey as a Peace Corps Volunteer in 1967 to give English lessons to the Turks, and they ended up giving me far more in return: a warm welcome, friendship, wisdom, and a lifetime career as a travel writer. More…
If I presume to guide travelers around Turkey, it is because I “grew up” with Turkish tourism, starting in 1967 when Turkish tourism was small and unimportant. I traveled to every part of the country and saw the huge potential that has now been realized.
Over the past 47+ years, the beauty of Turkey and the friendliness of its people have been discovered by the world, and Turkey is now among the world’s top ten travel destinations.
This high position is richly deserved, and I am proud to have had some small part in helping the Turkish people to achieve it.
So thanks again to my many Turkish friends. I hope you find Turkey Travel Planner to be a fitting token of my gratitude.
