Hello there. I'm a journalist with a fickle heart and wondering eyes. I love diving deep inside me and rising as a Phoenix from the ashes. And yet I am always searching spiritual beliefs and values.

Don't feel hesitate to contact me if you have any good offer.

Hey guys! I am lisa. I am American. In 2011 I married a Turkish man. I did visa paper work and we have been in America since 2012. We are thinking about going to live in Izmir.  Being American I am interested in what kind of work is available for me. I am a nurse but don't think I can practice there. I am really interested in getting to know other Americans so I won't feel so isolated. I have found out that there are expat communities in all countries. It would be great to get to know people who have or are taking this same path. I don't have savings and I will have continuous bills to pay so money is an important issue. I am glad to be a part of the expat community.
