Hi there

We are a small family located near Perth, Western Australia.

I have a Turkish heritage. My great great grandfather was Turkish probably form Gaziantep. I have a special interest in lineage, and hope that one day I will be able to trace my origin through the records in Turkey.

We plan to retire in Turkey after our son finishes his education in about a year and half. We have some good Turkish friends in Perth, and started to study about Turkey and its regions.

I visited Antalya for two weeks more than 20 years ago so I cannot really claim to have first hand experience visiting Turkey. We like what we heard about Bursa but are concerned it might be too cold for us. Our Turkish friends have a property in Fethiye and told us a lot of good things about it but we are not really looking for a tourist town. I think maybe a nice village or a small town close to the Mediterranean would be a nice place for us.

We have been living on a small hobby farm in Australia for the past 13 years. Of course, as we progress to retirement, we will down size so that we will spend more time looking after ourselves and health than working on and maintaining the land. We think a house on half an acre (2000 m2) will be ideal for us. We hope to be able to bring our dogs with us. We have one of the most loving Central Asia Shepherd dogs who is four and half years old. The best dog we have ever had, and we had many dogs over the years.

We welcome any comments, feedback or ideas about places in Turkey that you may think to be suitable for us. I think when we have a chance we will be visiting Turkey but we don't know when at this stage. I think the best course of action is to come to Turkey and live there for a few month, rent a car and explore ...

Well, last but not least, thank you for your time and for reading our introduction, and we look forward to hearing from you.

All the best ...

I'm Mohamad, I live in Istanbul, work in a translation office, I visited Istanbul in 2007 for the first time, and I loved the city and the people from first sight and prayed to God to live there for the rest of my life... Then I returned to Syria and been entertained by work and busy life, then I traveled to Dubai to work there, I forgot about my dream. In 2008 economic crisis happened in DXB n pushed me to go back to my country, then in 2012 the civil war started and I had to leave to find myself here again in Istanbul, after 5 years of a prayer, my dream came true.. I believe this is my home country, I always think of myself as one of the people here... I don't know why, but never felt home as much as I feel it here.. such a beautiful city where mountains, sees, and valleys meet together in one city, where Asia and Europe meet, where Ottoman empire and modern life join together.. I love sultan Ahmed küçük Ayasofya, and Üsküdar.. lovely people and generous morals.. I love bursa a lot.. Uludağ anda eating fruits in that old tree place.. fruits are very delicious in Bursa... Also the air is 10 times lighter than other cities.. the whole road to Uludağ is very beautiful and green.. I love bursa a lot..

Bursa, on the road to Uludağ, cold in winter, but woods are free... It's all green, it's heaven on earth..
Living cost is very cheap in comparison to Istanbul for instance..

I have so many interests, such as fitness, cooking, painting and watching football. I love learning languages as well. I already begun my journey in learning Turkish, which gets me very excited to hopefully get a chance to practice it soon. Also, I'd like to teach Arabic or English in some point. I'm passionate about life and I believe that the best is yet to come!
