We have clients every year who ask us if it is safe to travel to Turkey, given the political unrest in the region. Our witty response is - wouldn't you rather be somewhere that is accustomed to the purported, continual unrest, than somewhere that isn't? Turkey has been a staunch, peaceful, neutral NATO ally for over 50 years, dating back to the Eastern Bloc threat, the Iranian hostage crisis, continual Middle Eastern negotiations and the current Syrian refugee situation. Sort of a Middle Eastern Switzerland.
We give accolades to a country and administration which keeps peace with its multiple dodgy neighbors as a priority at all times, despite the alcohol taxes. Still queasy? We'll pick you up and drop you off in Greece, but be careful driving to the airport.
