Happy New Year (and some new directions)

This year we have learned that a couple of the Blogs we follow here in Turkey are finishing. To be honest we had thought of the same, but, we think 2016 is going to be an interesting year.

Some of the plans we had when we moved to Turkey included the east, maybe even Syria. Obviously those things are out of the question right now. We might go as far east as Cappadocia, but probably no further. We may spend more time in Greece, well actually we will be spending some time in Greece. Plans are afoot.

We also need to write up some of our travels from last year. Expect some of these over the coming weeks since right now the weather is not good for travel. We can catch up on the neglected posts.

So, a good part of the blog will be about us and travel, life in the Aegean. Life in Turkey. Nature, wildlife, and the rest.

We will be doing some other things on the blog as well.

There will be some more political commentary; we’ll be applying the Amnesty principle so are not likely to comment a great deal on the political situation in Turkey, or at least not in a critical way. We are guests here; we intend to act as such. So maybe about the UK, or the EU, or the Middle East.

There may be more about motorcycles.

There may be other things as well.

2016 is going to be an interesting year with some new things for us. So, we will continue blogging and sharing some of the things we get up to.

  1. Glad to hear you will be continuing with the blog! I would agree with your decision regarding political commentary, it seems wise.

  2. Thankfully there are still a few of us left blogging. I learned the hard way not to anger the “Powers That Be” and was blocked in Turkiye for a little while. I shall not make that mistake again.

  3. self-censorship sticks in my throat too – do keep your stuff coming, seeing places and things through different eyes is always refreshing.

  4. Looking forward to your blogs Alan. Interesting, I was thinking about stopping also. Perhaps you have given me the push I needed to keep on keeping on.
