Goodbye Cappadocia, goodbye Turkey!

We have just arrived in the Republic of Cyprus to start a new chapter in our lives. We have had 8 eventful and enriching years in Turkey but the climat of fear, suspicion, false accusations and nightly arrests of post-coup New Turkey is a far cry from the Turkey of 2007/2008 that we fell in love with. So it is with sadness but no regrets that we left and shook the dust from our sandals.

Thank you to TLF members for their support and advice and good banter over the years and best of luck to you all.

Re: Goodbye Cappadocia, goodbye Turkey!

The very best of luck to you Kingfisher. A new chapter and a new adventure. Hopefully a little less difficult than the beginning of your Turkey adventure! We moved to North Cyprus eighteen months ago and are very happy that we did so. Wishing you all the best.

Re: Goodbye Cappadocia, goodbye Turkey!

I am sorry to hear that you have decided to leave and live in Cyprus , but understand .... wish you all the best for your new life Vicky.... Hope you remember the good times here in Turkey and forget any bad ... And hope you keep popping into post from time to time ....
. With Charlotte gone and now you, with Janet, SuzyQ recently only occasionally popping in and LauraB in N Cyprus the more open minded anti Erdogan are beginning to be a smaller and smaller group .

I wish you all the best

Re: Goodbye Cappadocia, goodbye Turkey!

Good luck in your new life. I hope that the intolerance of the Southern Cypriots towards anything Turkish does not grate on you too much. We spent several years in TRNC and had occasions to works with people across the border and were sadly disappointed by their bigoted attitudes.

Re: Goodbye Cappadocia, goodbye Turkey!

I am surprised, I can honestly say you were one of the members I'd never imagined would leave because of political instability. Good luck with the move Kingfisher, I hope all goes smoothly.

Bal,

I may have moved but I haven't sold up. My dogs, house (friends, family) remain in Turkey and I have every intention of returning to my home in the future. However, saying that I am enjoying life in the UK and the girls are very happy with their new school and social life. All is well so far.

Ibrahim,

I lived in the TRNC and I know what you mean, I also experienced the hostility on some other islands. Luckily not all Greeks are the same though.


Charlotte
