I actually wanted to add this topic because during my internship in USA for last 3 weeks (I actually returned to Turkey couple days ago) I realized that many people don't know Turkey (from questions such as -Do you ride camels there?- to -You use Euro, don't you?-) and just because of that they avoid to visit here. Since Benny came to Turkey to learn & improve his Turkish, I thought its good time to answer your questions about Turkey!

For people who are not mu[Beware! This is SPAM posted by a third party] but want to or planning to come to Turkey, I know that it might be hard for you to come here since here is more different with its religion and also with its culture, so I just want to be sure that all of your minds are clear before seeing this country. I'll let you know what to be careful about or what to be not scare of about if you ask me some questions. You can send it with PM as well!

Turkey has personally for me been the easiest place I've ever traveled to.  The people were so friendly and helpful everywhere I’ve been even though my Turkish was minimal. Turkey is also not as conservative as people who’ve never been there make it out to be. Turks are very outgoing and very secular minded (there are always exceptions of course). Take it from me, it is a phenomenal place to visit!

As someone interested in possibly working in Turkey as an English teacher, this particular article caught my eye. Does anyone else have any more information about Turkey's decision to hire 40,000 native speaking English teachers?

Last week i visited Istanbul that i want to say taht is a splendit city. We arranged a half day morning Bosphorus with Dolmabahce Palace tour from this site and they did a good job. We were picked up from our hotel in the morning at they arrived at the exact hour they give me. I loved that because i don’t like to wait. It was a relaxing cruise on the Bosphorus and the view and all the beauties are worth to see http://www.privatetoursinistanbul.com It is the only place where to see the Asia and the Europe in the same time J you must do this cruise on the sun set. After this lovely cruise we wisited The Dolmabahce Palace... wow... it is an amasing palace with such luxary inside. The Ottoman Sultans had spent a lot of money to built it All the trip was very lovely. Thank you for this unforgetable short tour...

This may sound silly, but I love nuts and Turkey is one of the main exporters of hazelnuts. Which ones are the best?

Well if you mean where they come from in Turkey the answer is mainly blacksea region. Because of the good climate and so on, it's a place with full of potential to breed hazelnuts.

However, if you ask types of hazelnuts, then I can say that each one has its own taste. :)


Take care!
