My name is Nuray Aykin. I live in Keyport, New Jersey. I was born in Tarsus, Turkey and came to United States to pursue a doctorate in Industrial Engineering. I worked as a professor, consultant, and director at various universities and companies. I am now pursuing my dreams on healthy cooking, gardening an blogging about my beloved country, Turkey.
After completing my book, Pomegranates and Grapes: Landscapes from My Childhood, I got the bug to write about Turkey and about its wonderful landscape, culture, people, and history. I was lucky to spend four months in Turkey in Summer 2014, which helped my memories come alive bigger and better.
I hope you like my Turkey Travel blog and send me comments.
