What is the Bodrum - Cup?

The Bodrum Cup for wooden boats is the only yacht regatta in Europe (maybe even in the world) run with passengers on board, who, if-they wish, can double as crew.

The Belly Dance is definitely, a highlight in Turkey.

"Turkish Nights", in Bodrum always showcases Folkloric dances and the Belly Dance.

About Me - Erdal Ersoy

Erdal Ersoy 2nd of April 2009 My name is Erdal Ersoy and I am your host, founder and webmaster for this site. 

It is my pleasure assist you with your interest in Bodrum.

I hope you're learning a lot about Bodrum and have added my site to your favorites.

Why This Site?

I am at the age of 52 and an early retired executive bank officer. On retirement, I decided to settle in Bodrum and started to explore Bodrum by visiting the relevant websites and by talking to people.

Necessary information was lacking, which surprised me, as I would assume that most visitors to Bodrum would be here for the first time and trying to learn just like me.

For this reason, I decided that creating a website that was informative and extensive, was not only beneficial but would help a lot of visitors with what they needed to know about Bodrum.

Sure, there are lots of sites with only addresses  a few topics of interest. Not many describe Bodrum effectively and explain how to explore Bodrum thoroughly.

Hence the birth of  www.exloringbodrum.com

My goal is to create a comprehensive website that describes Bodrum as it is, and also to give visitors guidance on the best way to enjoy their stay in Bodrum, whether it is a holiday, a quick stop-over or they here for an event.

I'm No Designer and Author

Yes, it is this simple I'm No Designer and Author. But I do love to explore and share my experience with other people.

Not everyone who desires a website wants to become a programmer or an author.  Some people just want to learn enough to make their site look presentable.

A few days after publishing this web site, I started getting criticisms that are helping improve both my skill of web design and the content of the site.

This is my first website, I hope you will appreciate this fact and help me with my wish of further improvement of this site.

My secondary purpose of building this side is to form a hobby for myself and a build  a friendly network, which I can hold on to for the rest of my life.

Financial Freedom

From 5th may 2008, it is the day that I have retired. I have been financing all the needs of myself and the family from the resources which I kept aside during my professional life and also from the national pension payments. I think these recourses will be sufficient for the rest of my life.

In order to finance expenses related to his site, I am planning to work with affiliate programs like Google Adsense. It's a free program that allows you to display other advertiser's ads on your site. You earn revenue any time someone clicks on the ads

My Promise to You
