Good to be back home



ONE of Angourie's favourite daughters is back in town for a few weeks to catch up with friends.

Sevtap Yuce, a restauranteur who left in 2003 to go travelling, made an impact on the lives of many Angourie residents and forged life-long friendships while living there.

The Angourie community rallied when her Turkish brother was taken hostage and killed in Iraq by militants last year.

The Angourie community banded together and held a fundraiser for her brother's widow and family, managing to raise more than $2000.

Sevtap, who tries to visit once a year and still has her house and most belongings at Angourie, said she was happy to be back.

"It's amazing here, there is so much love and friendship. It's lovely to see all my friends again and to spend time seeing them and catching up with them," she said

While on her most recent travels she met her partner and the two of them now live in Den Hage in Holland.

"Here it is full of lovely weather, over there things are quite different. The weather is grey and where I live is like a big country town and it doesn't have the same atmosphere, or is as beautiful as here."
