Sharing blog links

I don't have much to write about on my blog at the moment, so I thought it would be nice to share links of some blogs that I have recently added to my reading list.

Back to Bodrum In her own words: "In early 1982 I boarded a Turkish Kibris flight to Izmir - my destination was a 29 foot sloop in Bodrum's new marina. At 22, my belongings fitted into a worse for wear sailing holdall. This year I made a similar journey from Heathrow to Bodrum. Thirty years have passed and Bodrum has changed. There are plenty of very good blogs detailing the ex-pat journey through modern Turkey. The aim of this one is to catch sight of past Turkey through my experience of re-settling in modern Bodrum"

The Western Front; A One Woman Invasion I found this blog, went back to the beginning and read the first post HERE and found I couldn't stop reading so spent a fair bit of time reading all her posts up to date.

Pul Biber with everything Read about this couple HERE. They are newly settled in Turkey and I enjoy reading about their experiences so far, which often remind me of when I first moved here. By a strange coincidence, after I found their blog, I discovered that they had bought their house in Selçuk from one of my's a small world!

Janice in Caunes In her own words "After years of staring in French estate agency windows when we have been on holiday, dreaming of the unlikely possibility of living in France..... we have finally bought a house 20 minutes drive from Carcassonne, and are intending to divide our lives between Hebden Bridge and Caunes Minervois. Emotions are mixed as we embark on this adventure, hoping we can make it work, and very excited about the prospect of spending quality time in the two places we love"
