Return to Turkey?

Couple of recent posts got me to thinking.

Has anyone who sold up and left Turkey - ever moved back?

We read various posts about reasons to leave/ stay but was just wondering has anyone ever done the big return

We are only out of it a wet day and looking forward to ft living in Valencia but I have always been careful to say never say never as regards a return some day

Re: Return?

Don't make threats like that Saoirse, our houses have gone up in value since you left.

Re: Return?

Obviously it has a lot of problems but Turkey still has a lot to offer

Re: Return?

It's not as easy to settle as our time there, loads more bureaucratic hurdles to jump. Other than that it would be what it ever was, great for some [me] not the one for others.

Re: Return?

I sure know what you mean 're bureaucracy and ever changing rules- did my head in but sort of got to expect it

Certainly I find Valencia easier to live in, partly because you have so many of the home luxuries you're used to BUT still, Turkey was fascinating. Will always have soft spot for it

Re: Return?

Oh Philip you know we are heading back !!! We weren't ready to leave, so we are coming back to continue our adventure. We aren't saying Turkey is our forever home, but, I think we need many more years there to explore and to enjoy the country, it's people and culture. xx

Yeah you are the only one I can think of who has decided to do this though there must be others hence my query

Best wishes and keep us posted

Re: Return?

I do know of people that want to return, or have returned. For us we just weren't ready to leave when we did, as I said previously it was knee jerk reaction to the residency changes. So for us a few more years in Turkey before continuing with our adventure to wherever life takes us. xx

Re: Return?

Frankly I KNOW deep down the big girls heart is still in Turkey-therefore whilst things are still a bit unstable there currently I would definitely not rule out a return for us in years ahead.

It's an amazing place and after having such a great time there for such a long period it is hard to just shake it off
