    EU Turkey Visa Liberalisation

    I see there are plans to liberalise visa's for Turkish citizens to visit EU countries, including the UK, as part of the deal to restrict refugees from leaving Turkey. (Hope I got that right). Does this mean that Turkey will reciprocate and allow EU/UK citizens more freedom? Would the 90/180 day...

    TV set cost in Turkey?

    Anyone tell me what the cost of a (about) 19 inch TV is. I see they are about £100 in Argos so if they are much more expensive in Turkey might be worth bringing one out if that is legal?

    Election consequences?

    So, what will it mean to us, the ex pats, visitors and tourists? Will there be major changes? I see the Lira has just gone up against the pound again. And what about important things, will my barber be charging more? Will the price of Efes go up?😇😨

    Overflowing rubbish bins everywhere, no Zabita patrolling the beach walkway, dogs and cyclists taken over where they are not allowed. Is it because Manavgat Council (Belisomething) have gone beliup after taking over from Side.

    I have read that your number of days in Turkey is now dependant on a countback from the date you left Turkey???? What does that mean? I can count up to 90 and even 180 and I can also add up various days and weeks. If you don't exceed 90 days within the 180 day period, surely that is Ok? If it's...
