Istanbul 'expert' at work

After helping update guides to Istanbul and Turkey for DK Travel and Weissmann Reports [now Travel42], I've started an assignment as the "Istanbul expert" for Simonseeks, a new British travel site. I'll be scoping out the best hotels and restaurants in the city, and writing guides to sightseeing, shopping, nightlife, and getting around – not to mention highlighting some of my personal favorite spots in my adopted home. The Istanbul guide will debut later in the fall – watch this space for more details.

To go along with my new gig, I've also started up a second Twitter account, @TheTurkishLife, devoted to all things Istanbul and Turkey.

UPDATE: Simonseeks closed down in 2011. You can read some of my tips from my Istanbul guide on this blog.
