“Turkey is a geographical and cultural bridge between the east and the west,” writes Istanbul University’s Gönül Bakay.

Should You Be Googling Yourself?

In 2004, after being shot by an unknown assailant, one Australian man encountered some disturbing information from Google search results. Revealed in image searches and even filled in by Google’s autocomplete searches was his own name, linked with the names of local criminals, mobsters to be exact.

How to Be Less of a Traveling Asshole in 2019

Everyone likes to think that they’re a good traveler. But are you as good as you think you are? Probably not. “How dare you call me an asshole?! I’m one of the good ones!” I mean, we’re all assholes.
