About me

Thank you for visiting my personal blog. I am a retired architect and now a writer, historian and an avid visitor to the Southern coast of Turkey. I studied classical architecture before entering the Royal Navy to become an aeronautical engineer and later a professional architect.

I have also designed gulets and restored M/S ‘Odysseus’, a classic Turkish gulet which I have an interest in, which features extensively in this website.

Have the holiday of a lifetime cruising the Southern coast of Turkey – charter our 75 foot luxury Turkish gulet, available during summer months – berths up to 10 guests with a crew of 4.  See Odysseus Cruising website for full details.
