Specialist subjects


Jeremy’s interest in Turkey began with a spell teaching English there in 1984.  He instantly fell for the country – its extraordinary abundance of amazing archaeological sites, its giddyingly rich history, its superb food and epic landscapes.

He has now visited countless times as writer and travel guide. He knows the country as well as anybody and in recent years has also been leading cultural tours there.

On the bucket list

To visit Macahel, a mountainous region of Turkey on the borders with Georgia; and to finally get to Edirne, Turkey’s border city with Europe, rich in superb Ottoman mosque architecture.
