I'm promising you reducing stress, mindfulness meditation and nature adventure. Notes about the destination: The trip will take place in Urla which is a town in Izmir (3rd biggest city in Turkiye), just 40 mins away from the international airport. It has been very popular with the agricultural products (olive oil, artichoke, herbs, etc..), food production, local wine producers, blue water hidden beaches and nature.

About me: I'm Eylem, 43 years old and living in Urla for 3,5 years. I had been working at payment and technology indusrty as a global manager for a long time. I was living in Istanbul and travelling almost all the time. I travelled to several countries alone, and this was a great experience for me to extend the ideas in my mind. I studied chef&owner management, created my own food recipes and accordingly I joined into restaurant business. It was a great experience for 1,5 years, however I decided to hand it over to my friends just before the pandemic issues. Now I'm a full time traveler, a local wine tester, sometimes a fisherman, sometimes a gardener and sometimes a local chef in my kitchen. Let's come and join me here :)

Accommodation: The accommodation will be a guest house with separate bedrooms for each TripMate. The whole house will be reserved for us only. Thus, you'll perfectly have your isolated tranquility and can have your spare time. I can't promise however hopefully the house would also have a patio and/or garden for us to socialize.
