My name is Susie and I am from England

I am a foreigner and I live in Alanya Slider

Hello, my name is Susie from England,

I live in Alanya, Avsallar in Turkey.

Last Friday was my official 5 year anniversary of moving to Turkey! Unfortunately I celebrated with a trip to the hospital for a slipped disk in my back. However In the previous weeks to that I have been getting to know the place a lot better. Alanya is such a beautiful area and I am so happy to call this my home. Being here has been filled with joy, happiness, love and wonderful friendships. Yes there has been hard times and adjusting has proved ‘interesting’. But I wouldn’t change it for the world. The romantic notion that sea, sun, romance and peace that seems to follow the idea of living abroad is not the reality. The quirks, the comical moments, the nuances are what makes it special. A big thank you to everyone who has been part of my adventure and I am looking forward to many more adventures to come.
