I live in US and would like to move to turkey. Looking for mild climate and don't enjoy cold or too hot weather. Can anyone recommend a nice place? I have been to Istanbul and Ankara but 30 years ago and don't remember much of either. Looking to have a change in life from hectic life here. I'm a simple person and love foods and nothing extraordinary. I know the sky is the same no matter where you go , but just a simple life and simple way of thinking.
I am also a doctor and practice emergency medicine. Anyone help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you

Hi,
My name is Sam. My wife and I are considering moving from California to Istanbul or Izmir (preferably Istanbul) probably next summer. We're planning to buy a little property, this way we won't have to worry about the rent. I have two questions to ask:
Do we need to have a permanent address in Turkey to open a bank account?
What are the prospects of finding an English teaching job in Istanbul or Izmir? I have a master's degree in teaching and a bachelor's degree in Linguistics. I will appreciate your time in advance.

Thank you so much. It's a great start. I am a big city person but have a very simple lifestyle and not flashy or extravagant . I would like to live near a large city but in suburbs. I'm only one person and no kids or wife. What would you estimate as a starting point for the monthly cost of living would be for a comfortable but modest lifestyle?
Thank you and best wishes
