Expat Experience: Louise, Istanbul

Post Posted: Thu Dec 05, 2013 4:09 am



My name is Louise, originally from Birmingham UK.

I moved just two months ago this week to Istanbul. A last minute decision and job offer saw my partner and I pack up our flat, our lives and our jobs to come and teach English in Turkey. I have been looking to teach English abroad for years now, but for one reason or another I hadn't got round to it. Originally searching for jobs in South Korea an agency advertising for jobs in various locations around the world asked where we would consider going. Turkey was something that I had not previously considered, but the more I thought about it the more I thought why not?

Our jobs in the UK were becoming unbearable and our tenancy just about to end, the agency was looking for people who could work in Turkey immediately which suited us fine and drove our decision to go there over South Korea, where we were told we may not be able to find a position together or even in the same city. Turkey became a no brainer...
