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 ...
