I’m Meg, a former travel publicist turned writer and editor. I’m a non-practicing New Yorker living in Durham, North Carolina after stints in Istanbul, Turkey and Wellington, New Zealand. My daughter Vera is an old pro at travel, clocking in 20 countries before she turned six.
You may remember me as Meg Nesterov, or even Meg Lamb. Alcazar was my grandmother’s maiden name; her father was an attorney and the mayor of Port of Spain, Trinidad nearly a century ago. The name is Spanish, but Sir Henry Alcazar took the name from his father, a visiting French dignitary who had an affair with an islander, scandalous!

As the first commenter on this blog, I want to kick things off by saying “well done, Meg.” A really quirky, fun, interesting blog with articles I actually read in their entirety. Very refreshing.
The more we read your blog entries, the more we are considering a visit to Turkey next spring (late) or summer (early). Keep up the flow of interesting info.
