I live in London in the West. My family lives in the East of England about an hour by train. I enjoy reading and going out with friends and most of all travel - helpfully I work in the tourism industry so have the chance to indulge my passions. I have been to Istanbul a couple of times previously and love the mix of cultures from east and west and that I can walk from the historic old town to the bars and clubs of the new around Istiklial and Taksim. I hope you'll allow me to come and stay at your delightful apartment.
