I’m a Turkish-American programmer and a Fenerbahce fan from Izmir, Turkey. Moved to Istanbul for college. And moved to New York while I was following an Irish-American girl whom I met in Kackar Mountains in Turkey. Because of my personal and professional life style, I have the privilege to travel and also meet people.

In 2005, “I was in Turkey” was born as my personal project to introduce Turkey and also to enjoy our cultural differences as a Turkish and a human being. Back then, not so many people knew anything about Turkey. So it was created as a travel guide. After almost 15 years later, I wanted re-start it as an introduction of Turkey instead of a guide.

Its’ design and functionalty are updated. Guide sections are removed. New sections will be added in time. And we will be selling hand-made hats soon.

I hope you will enjoy the site and share your Turkish experiences.

Thanks,
Onur
