A little thankyou giveaway..

As a little token of my appreciation, I have decided to do a little giveaway to celebrate hitting 70,000 views..

Don’t get too excited, it’s nothing amazing like a free flight to Turkey…. I wish!! While out shopping today I bought this little Turkish phrase book & audio CD. It’s worth £7.99, and one of you can win it totally for free. Great for learning phrases to impress friends, family or even just to make the locals smile when you surprise them with your Turkish while on your holidays. It is brand new, CD still sealed inside. I have only opened it to take photos, and am now actually wishing I got one for myself too!

All you need to do to be entered is comment on this blog post, by just scrolling down and clicking ”leave a reply’.  Only people who comment on THIS post directly, and not via Facebook or anywhere else, will be entered. The giveaway will end on Saturday 1st February and a winner chosen using a random number generator. It’s only open to people in the UK and Ireland unfortunately, as postage costs would be too high with no guarantee of it reaching safely elsewhere, sorry.

A little disclaimer too, I paid for this with my own money, it was not given to me. I also earn no money at all from my blog, I do not get paid per view or receive any income from adverts, I blog entirely for fun, and just wanted to do a tiny giveaway to say a huge thanks for helping me reach 70,000 views, something I am very proud of.

Good luck and thank you all once again.

  1. I enjoyed reading your blogs on best worst of living in Turkey. I have been to Turkey twice on holiday, Marmaris and Gumbet. x

  2. Firstly BIG WELL DONE Hun on reaching your hugemongous hits,,,love reading your blog…its brilliant,,,would love to win this as ive been to-ing n fro-ing across to the land of Efes for over 20 years n still learning the lingo lol x

  3. Love reading ur blogs keep up the good work x this would come in handy as my turkish is practically non existent lol xx good luck every1 x

      • I met my friend in Northern Cyprus where he was working nearly two years ago and we’ve kept in contact, I’ve been back to see him a few times but I would really like him to come to England to visit but he says it’s very difficult as he has to have a lot of money saved and it’s hard to get a visa. I just wondered if you have any advice which would help us help him to get a visa? But he doesn’t want us to pay for anything so can we help him in other ways? x

      • the first time my bf had around £80 in his account and around £6 the last time… my dad was his sponsor though. could you not do that? youll need to show proof of funds in your account, evidence of income, proof the house is big enough, a letter inviting him and saying youll let him stay for free, etc. but it wouldnt cost you anything …

        the biggest problem is people depositing large sums of money into their accounts cos they believe as your bf does, that they need thousands saved. Its the opposite.. any money in their bank has to add up with their wages. my bf earns around £300 a month, so if he had thousands saved, itd be suspicious and he’d be refused straight away.


      • Thank you, we’ve spoken to lots of people in Cyprus and they all think that they need at least 10,000TL to come over. We would gladly sponser him and have already told him he could stay with us, who would we write the letter to? Would we write the letter to him and he would then show it to the relevant people in Turkey? Mithat earns about the same amount each month, but would him still needing to do his time in the army affect his chances of getting a visa? x

      • That’s rubbish, trust me he doesn’t need anything near that. Don’t let him use an agent they all lie and have no idea what they’re talking about x
        You’d send all ur papers to him and he’d hand them all in when he goes to the appointment 🙂 my bf had over 40 documents each time x

        Berkay hasn’t done his eitherx
