Phil Buckley



Phil originally hails from Manchester, England. A student of Art History and European literature, he travelled during his gap year of employment. He started doing coach tours and representative jobs in continental Europe but decided to try something alternative whilst on a break from a Ph.D. in Philosophy and Art. An adventure company offered him trekking in Turkey and he never went back!

Later he partnered with Ufuk and Tevfik to start Bougainville Travel. When not travelling, Phil is interested in photography, technology, music and football. Phil is married to Alison and has a daughter and a son. He speaks English, Turkish and French.
