Your local host

Ingi

I am a very experienced host who enjoys making guests feel at home. My aim is not only to share my love of mosaics but also my daily life in Turkey: its culture, its traditions, its beautiful scenery and its delicious food. Turkey has been my home for 15 years and sharing my knowledge and my art with others is a wonderful experience. It is therapeutic, fun and very relaxing. It’s amazing how much you can fit into 1 week without any stress and I thrive on seeing happy faces when it’s time to say goodbye - because then I know I’ve made a positive change in someone’s life. What can be better?
