Re: new member says Hi

Welcome to the forum.

Izmir is arguably the most modern/western life-styled city in Turkey; there are numerous expats who live and work here and a large NATO community. The choice of schooling is good, with numerous private schools which might suit your needs, or local state schools. Although it's a city it has many beautiful coastal districts including Foca (north) Guzelbahce (south) Urla and Cesme/Alacati (both south west). Izmir has a huge international airport and a port which welcomes cruise ships, so great transport links, and Cesme has a sea port with connections running to the Greek islands (the closest is just 40 minutes away). There are also some lovely historical sites too.

You haven't really said what kind of lifestyle you're looking for (touristy/retired beach life or work/city life) but my recommendation is Izmir based on your initial comment.

Hope you find what you're looking for.

Re: new member says Hi

Welcome to the forum and like nanamo, I'm also nosey and would be interested in finding out why you have left Aussie land after 20 years. I thought most people leave for Australia to have a better lifestyle, and enjoy quality time with young family. Having said that Turkey is truly a beautiful country and can understand it being a good choice for many people who make the move to enjoy the laid back lifestyle there.
