When Huffman, who lived in Turkey for three years and speaks Turkish fluently, retired from a Fortune 500 company in 1997, he decided to follow his passion and open a travel business. He returns to Turkey at least once a year, keeping an eye out for new hotels, restaurants, and sights. He plans at least 10 bespoke trips to the country each year, and is equally skilled at helping travelers navigate the experiences in major destinations (Istanbul, Ephesus, Cappadocia) and discover new ones, like sailing by gulet along the Turkish coast.
