Belgian-born, California-raised travel writer Jessica Tamtürk has called the culturally vivid metropolis of Istanbul and the small olive haven of Pelitköy, near the Aegean coastal town of Ayvalik, her homes since 2005. She spent the ten years prior on lengthy reconnaissance missions and family visits in Turkey until finally expatriating to the shores of the Bosphorus. Through marriage and a couple of baby carriages, her love and admiration for this culturally and historically unparalleled land and its people has only grown deeper.
Professionally speaking, Jessica honed her journalistic skills working for a small daily in California. She received regional distinction for her investigative articles on education and crime. From there, she went on to focus on her passions—the written word and Turkey—in various print and online publications, including Transitions Abroad, Istanbul Guide, and Fortune Magazine.
