Raised in Izmir by the Aegean Coast, Mr Gunturk Ustun, is a retired medical doctor, a travel/gourmet poet-writer. As a long-time transportation fan, he has written and published some volumes of poetry (all in Turkish) until now and he currently works on his new books. His poems have been published in various literary journals and anthologies in Turkey as well as in a English language poetry website called Mediterranean Poetry [www.odyssey.pm] based in Sweden. As an avid reader and researcher on the transportation issues, he also comments regularly (as a weekly columnist) by using some of his poetic skills in a popular Turkish logistics/transport news website [Lojiport]. Furthermore, he keeps commenting in French mostly on European railroads on the renowned "La Vie du Rail" magazine's various websites. Besides Turkish, Mr Ustun is fluent both in English and French. He divides his time between Istanbul and Izmir.
