Back in England..

Yes, I am now back in England. Berkay and his friends took me to the airport on Thursday night and after a lot of tears, I got on the plane that bought me back to London Stansted at 5am Friday morning. It was no doubt the hardest thing I’ve ever done, packing up my house […]

Why am I moving back to England?

Lot of people have commented and messaged me asking why I’m going back to England, so I thought I’d explain. The main reason is money. We live off one pretty poor Turkish ย wage.

Holiday fling or the real thing? Can relationships with Turkish men really last?
