Izmir in Turkey has always had a special place in my heart. It is where I traveled overseas for the first time, and the city is also where I spent the summer far away from home for the very first time. So it is not rocket science when I decided to spend my semi digital nomad life in Izmir for the last couple of months last year.
Going back to Izmir became a journey for tracing back in time, wandering around full of nostalgic vibes. From walking around the seaside while people-watching, to visiting the good ol’ dormitory where I spent too much drama with the headmaster. Good time. LOL.
But of course, I’m not gonna rant about the personal side of the story this time. And instead, I want to share with you a few reasons why Izmir can also be an excellent alternative to make a homebase in your digital nomad journey in Turkey.
