Hi! Not many messages have been posted for a while from Bursa. Is everyone on holiday?
I'm returning to Bursa after a time in England and wondered if there were any expats I could meet up with. I'll be arriving at the beginning of August with my three children (ages 6, 3 and 3 months) and my Turkish husband. While I was in Bursa before I didn't meet up with many expats because of work and my location (a bit out of the city), but I'm going to be a stay-at-home mum for a few more months and would particularly like to meet up with other mums. Anyway, please reply if there is anyone there!!!! Jude
(Hopefully this message won't disappear like my last one. I've also had to change my user name and re-register twice now - Is there a probem or is it just me?)
Hi, My boyfriend and I are living in Bursa at least through Feb. We have been here since August. We would be interested in meeting sometime. We worked in Istanbul for one year and came to Bursa to get out of the intensity of the big city.
Hi I am considering a teaching position in Bursa to start in early January. I was aware that there weren't a lot of expats in the area but from the posts on this site I am starting to think that there are very few indeed! If any of you would like to get in touch I would love to hear from you. In particular I would love some info on Bursa and what its like living there. Some posts say it is expensive, some say cheap. Is there plenty to do? Is it hard to get around from there? I am single Aussie woman.
Hi Lynne I have been here since Nov and love it. Expensive is relative to where you live and if you have a car mostly. Petrol is about 2.80 or so lira which is very close im value to the Aussie dollar. General living costs seem to be prety low. Fresh food and groceries are cheap if you go to the markets/bazaars
Public transport seems cheaper and more reliable than Adelaide at least and more frequent.
Great night life here and lots to see and do. Like to snow ski? Uludağ is the biggest ski resort in Turkey and is only 30odd kms from Bursa. I hear there´s a bit of snow up there now. Very nice place. Lots of tea gardens and resturants in Bursa. Working hours are way different to Aus. Most people work a 7 days. Having some understanding of Turkish would help. This is not a big english speaking city hence your opportunity. I am currently doing my TEFL so I can stay. Hope that helps some
