Turkey Discovered was born in the summer of 2013, during an inspiring trip to Istanbul, one of the most historic cities in the world. During a walk along the Bosphorus on the way back from Bebek we came up with the idea of creating a travel resource to help people get the most out of their time in Turkey. After this realisation the talking had stopped and their Turkey Discovered journey begun.
We were ready to take action, the only problem was we didn’t have a laptop with them to start work on the website. Thats when an emergency call was made to our friend in London who was due to meet us in Turkey a few days later. We told him our the plan for the website and that we needed him to go to our houses in London so that he could bring over our Macbook’s. Without any hesitation he said “of course kardeş” (sibling in Turkish) and brought the laptops to Turkey with him. The remainder of the trip was used to revisit some of Istanbul’s key areas to inspire us to create high quality articles for our readers.
Turkey Discovered will help you navigate and learn about some of the history behind Turkey’s greatest attractions as well as take you to places other travel resources fail to mention. Our journey started in Istanbul but plans are in place to explore all of Turkey so that we can create the most complete Turkey travel resource to help you and others experience the unrivalled beauty that Turkey has to offer.
