Turkey: Bright Sun, Strong Tea

On the road with a travel writer...

Tom Brosnahan went to Turkey in 1967 as a US Peace Corps Volunteer to teach English. He wrote Frommer's Turkey on $5 a Day (1972) as a Peace Corps project. In 1975 he returned to Istanbul on a Fulbright fellowship to study Ottoman history and language, expecting to be a university professor.

Instead, he became a travel writer, guidebook author, photographer and consultant. His 30+ guidebooks to a dozen countries for Lonely Planet, Frommer’s, Berlitz and Insight have sold over four million copies worldwide, and have been translated into ten languages. His guides to Turkey were perennial best-sellers.

How does one become a travel writer? Is it the best job in the world? It's all here, along with a lot of humor, history and culture. You can download the full ebook from Amazon.com

or from Apple iTunes iBooks.
