Hello All

hello everyone... I am new to the forum and thought I would quickly introduce myself.... I am 33 and live in the UK. My partner is currently doing his conscription in Malatya, Turkey he has 5 months to go, cant wait. We have been really good friends for 15 years now after meeting whilst I was on holiday when I was 19 and we have been together for a year as a couple. Im finding the forum really interesting to hear other people's stories and experiences

Re: Hello All

Wow, that is a long time. Have you noticed any changes in the places you visit over the years?

I guess each area is different, small turkish villages or towns will be quite different to large cities and develop at differing rates than coastal resort towns.

Do you prefer it now or then or no real difference?

Re: Hello All

Icmeler where is where I go most years has changed quite a bit over the years, not always for the better... for example, bars closing at midnight, music off by midnight, stopping the barmen shows, and for the first time this year, the weekly market has been stopped by the mayor which will be strange as was very popular. There have been some nice changes, the marina that was built and the updating of the beach area, what has stayed the same is the quiteness of the resort compared to some other more lively resorts, it has remained very family/couple orientated and the friendliness of the place never changes

Re: Hello All

Thanks, that's nice to hear..
if the friendliness and warmth of the people never changes, doesn't matter about the development too much.

That's what I like about Turkey, it's people and warmth (not just the sun factor
