Running a successful tour requires hard work from a dedicated team. While our tour guides and drivers are the face of our company, showing our guests all that Turkey has to offer, back in the office our hard working operations and accounts staff are providing the behind the scenes support to every tour. Meet Aslı Kabak from our Accounts Department:
I come from a city called Isparta in Turkey. Isparta is known as the “City of Roses” because it is famous for its rose water production.
I have worked for Glorious since August 2015, and before that I worked in the textile sector in a range of different roles. I love my job because of the order and discipline that working in accounts provides.
Tell us about some of your favourite places in Turkey?
My favourite places in Turkey are Marmaris, Bodrum, and Fethiye – I guess you could say that I like the coastal areas best. I love these towns because of their amazing views and natural beauty. In the main photo here you can see me paragliding on a recent trip to Fethiye. I am keen to visit these places again, and it is my dream to also visit Venice.
And when you are not at work, how do you spend your time?
These days I am really busy. I am studying a post-graduate accounting qualification. I also love spending time with my friends. The small photo here was taken in Taksim on a day out with my friends. I love Taksim because there is a lot to see and do, and it is a great place to people-watch. I am also a fan of the football team Besiktas, which is one of the “big 3” Turkish teams, and so I like to watch their matches. I also love music. If I had to pick a favourite genre, I’d say pop music.
