We are a Turkish family, with a 7 years old daughter living in a very beautiful Turquoise Coastal town at Mediterranean sea, named Kaş. Here is an old fishing village of Kaş remains relatively untouched. Has long summers where many international travelers visit and wish to stay permanently. Known largely as a divers’ paradise, the city has a hippyish sensibility.
We are working from home, me for a multinational pharmaceutical company as supply chain manager, and my husband Ilker; former art director in several agencies is now freelancer graphic designer.
We love outdoor sports. We both are scuba diving instructors, experienced sea kayakers and cavers.
We are easy going, reliable, humanist and environmentalist people loving to travel and meet new people around the world and would love to host someone who has similar values.
We are spending our days working, gardening and outdoor activities such as cycling, hiking, swimming, diving, kayaking etc.

We also have a farmhouse and would love some help in gardening as well.

We work in the day time and go to swimming in my lunch break. My husband Ilker joins me in swimming or goes to our farmhouse which is at 1000 mt. 20 minutes driving from our home for carpentry, gardening etc.
Depending on the weather, we do seakayaking, scuba diving, hiking around the ancient cities around and have picnic there on weekends.
