When I was in London, people used to ask me how many wives I have and if I have ever seen an oak tree in my life. They were amazed that I actually own a car and not a camel. Turkey's image in the west is horrific unfortunately. Only getting worse too. Hopefully these videos help people in the west to open up their eyes a bit however I have no hope tbh. Centuries of guided misinformation is hard to over come.

While you're in the black sea region you HAVE to go to Ayder! It's a little village on top of the mountains, hence why the air is so clean and fresh!

Interesting that you mentioned Alpine views. If I didn’t know you were in Turkey, I would have thought you were in Austria or Germany. So jealous- I want to be travelling, meeting people and eating local grub

I bet on money, those cows are producing wonderful and tasty milk.

This is fascinating! With every new video, I see a new part of Turkey I didn't even know it had. The air there must be super clean and fresh I bet! This area looks like as if the road is the real destination, everywhere you go there's something new and beautiful to see :D
