Live, Work & Travel in Turkey



Spanning Europe and Asia, Turkey has seen civilisations come and go. Evidence of these cultures is scattered around the country in abundance from Greco Roman Ephesus to ruined Armenian and Hittite cities. Other attractions include Istanbul, one of the world's great cities, Pamukkale, Cappadocia and the long Aegean, Mediterranean and Black Sea coastlines. It is along the western and southern coasts that a new, small but significant, wave of northern Europeans are choosing to call home attracted by a cheaper cost of living, the sunshine and the warmth of the Turkish people.
