Jack’s Turkey Top Five

Sasha at On UR Way invited me to recommend my Turkey top five in her World Experiences series. I was really pleased to be asked. When you’re thumbing through a brochure or studying a guide book do you sometimes get the feeling that some of the authors haven’t actually been to the places they’ve written about? I’m not a travel writer (though who knows in the future) but at least I’ve seen and experienced the activities I’ve selected.

  1. How right you are, Jack. Lonely Planet are actually quite open about the fact they don’t visit the places they write about. When I wrote to complain about the last Turkey book they told me the author based it on recommendations by email and hearsay from fellow-travellers. So you can sit happily in your armchair in Bodrum and write a travel guide about Shanghai!


    1. Turkey is an amazing country to visit with more ancient Greek sites than Greece and a unique blend of cultures – not quite west, not quite east. Turkey’s size means there’s something for everyone. Come and enjoy.
