Description

With such an immense political and cultural heritage, it's no surprise kaleidoscopic Turkey is such a feast - a prime cut of authenticity, seasoned by the West and spiced by the East. Jack Scott knows a thing or two about the country. He lived there for years and travelled widely - to Istanbul and along its south-western shores from Izmir to Alanya. In Postcards from the Ege, Scott shares some of his must-sees and personal highlights. Follow Scott's trail. Come to Turkey.

About Jack Scott

After over thirty years as a municipal bean-counter slowly ascending a career ladder to middle management, middle income and a middling suburban terrace, Jack Scott decided to chuck in the towel, flog off the family silver and pitch his tent in a foreign field with his husband, Liam. They parachuted into paradise with their eyes firmly shut. With the blindfolds removed, they found themselves peering into a bear pit of neo-colonial pretensions - all airs and no graces. Nothing could prepare them for what was to come - heat exhaustion, biblical floods, Byzantine red tape, casual censorship, power cuts, devil bugs, fetid plumbing, suicidal drivers, dirty politics, randy waiters, awe-inspiring sunsets, benevolence, generosity and approval. Eventually, they found diamonds in the rough and roses among the scrub.
