Holly Winter Huppert's Cheese for Breakfast: My Turkish Summer is a joy ride of surprises. Join her as she climbs castles, eats from communal bowls, joins a 40-minute water fight from the back of a truck, lives with a Turkish family, visits remote areas and marks two lifelong dreams off of her bucket list: visit the ancient city of Ephesus and watch the Whirling Dervishes whirl in prayer.

As she travels, Huppert navigates cultural differences, defies typical travel routes, and basks in the kindness of strangers. During one long night while fearing for her safety, the author questions her love of solo travel, but once she is back on the road she remembers that there is a question that drives her:

What's it really like there?

Cheese for Breakfast: My Turkish Summer answers that question.

Whether you want to use this book with the author's travel photos as a blueprint so you can follow in her footsteps or as entertainment as you sip a coffee from the comfort of home, this could be the adventure you've been waiting for.

The companion book: Photos of Cheese for Breakfast: My Turkish Summer is now available everywhere books are sold. The hardcover book is printed in color and has 300 pages.

Holly Winter Huppert may remind you of other travel writers. She writes about remote areas like James Michener, gets to know the locals wherever she goes like Paul Theroux, follows her passion of learning about other cultures like Bruce Chatwin-all while making you laugh like Bill Bryson.
