tl;dr Easiest way for finding out the current local time is to make a Google search.
Let’s say you need to call someone in Turkey. A loved one, or someone who is helping you with organizing your trip. You need to know the time there before you can call them. It might get a bit confusing, especially around the times when day light savings adjustments are made.
Turkey geographically spans two time zones GMT+2 and GMT+3. Latter one is used as the summer time (yaz saati). On average there will be 7 hours time difference with the east coast (GMT-5) and 10 hours time difference with the west coast (GMT-8).
One thing you need to be aware of that is summer time means different things in different parts of the world. Typically in North America it will happen between early March to early November. Whereas in Europe and Turkey it will be between late March to late October.
There is an awesome fact that is beyond all these math. There could be up to 11 hours time difference between where you live and Turkey. If you dig a hole from where you stand and get out from the other side of the world you will have 12 hours or a half day of time difference. That means Turkey is almost on the other side of the world. You should congratulate yourself for making such a great trip and discovering the beauties of the world you live in.
