Accidentally Istanbul and other travel tales

Never meaning to go to Istanbul, Nancy Knudsen ended up living there for two years. Finding no help from guidebooks to adjusting to life in this exotic city, Nancy wrote her book Accidentally Istanbul, a humorous account of her experiences trying to decipher the intricacies of Turkish culture, food politics and lifestyle.

With a varied career in acting, founding her own travel company and being named owner of the year in the Telstra Business Women's Awards, Nancy then spent six years sailing around the world with her husband.

Her first book Shooting stars and Flying Fish, chronicles the adventures from this time sailing the world.
