A New Blog

I haven't posted on here for a long time. The pages still keep getting hits - particularly the posts on moving to Turkey - and I still keep getting emails. I try to respond to every mail I receive but I've felt for a while now that my own experiences just aren't broad enough. So I'm doing something about that.

I'm studying for an MA at the moment, and in conjunction with that I have set up a new blog:
The Women in Turkey Project I'm interviewing expat women from as many different demographics as I can and posting their interviews online. It's a long term project. It takes me a while to write up the interviews - I don't want to publish anything the interviewee isn't happy with, so things can go back and forth a lot before they make it on to the site. It's in its early days right now, but I'd love it if you went and checked it out, of even liked the facebook page It'll tell you a lot more about the real-life of moving to Turkey than I can alone.

Interviews so far include:
Angie on running a successful business and being a woman in charge in Turkey.

Sian on moving to Fethiye alone

and Linda on bridging the culture gap with Race for Life.

I'm slowly trying to build a list of resources to go along with the blog. I hope to see you over there - let me know what you think!
