I’m travelling to Turkey, again. I first visited Turkey when I was 6 months old. My parents took me there. They have a lot of footage from our trip which I also recently got to watch again.
My father, who is retired now, spent a lot of time in the past few weeks trying to digitize all the VHS content that he had. He has found some success and restored a lot of that content.
My second visit to Turkey was when I was 25. Since then I’ve been there every year, at least once.
Turkey is what Pakistan could have been. It is also one of the potential countries suited best for digital nomadism.
The quality of life is miles ahead of what it is here in Pakistan. The cost of living is incredibly cheaper than most of the developed countries. In my opinion, cost of living is only 33% higher in the metropolis of Turkey compared to the metropolis of Pakistan. So, if you need $1000 to live in Pakistan, you only need $1300-$1400 to live in Turkey.
This slightly higher cost for a much better lifestyle makes it my favorite spot to spend some quality time.
Here’s my favorite video about Turkey.
