Kanak-Kanak Çanakkale

Albeit not being a crazy fan of Brad Pitt or Orlando Bloom, I would still go gaga if I ever met them in person. Seeing the iconic ‘wooden horse’ from the film Troy, which both handsome men acted in at Çanakkale’s seafront was truly half as awesome to me. Three reasons for you to view this post at all: 1. The gorgeous set of sunset photos at the end; which […]

Kusadasi Travel Guide

I enjoy history but sometimes the dry facts that come with it bore me to the core of my bones. While writing this piece, I find myself enjoying it very much as my memories remain colourful and vividly they dance. I quickly realize that the reason is because my tour guide was witty enough to only err to the fun side. In this travelogue, you’ll read many stories resembling Game […]

Fields of Opium

We basically lived on the Turkish roads en route to Konya that dusty summer in June. From day to night, from 7 to 7, we sat in a van named Vamos that transported us from Cappadocia to Pamukkale via Konya. Throughout the 12 hours journey I slept loads; dozing off every now and then, waking up to see peaceful hilly scenes of soothing greens that faithfully stayed on my left […]

Let’s Go Ballooning

I get asked a lot as to where I find the money to travel. Firstly, you might not see it but I work hard and save wisely. Secondly, I think it is a matter of life priorities. Everyone can travel, but not everyone puts it as an actual life priority. I do. To me, our 20′s is the time to truly live. Instead of being tied down by a mortgage, for […]

At a land where everything seems like 80% deserts and caves, one might wonder, “What’s there to buy?” As the van drove us along Paşabağ valley, I thought about the people I love and the home I live in. What can I get for them and my apartment to remind me of the precious time collected at Turkey? I remember giving up on that thought – until Cappadocia’s pretty trinkets […]

Cappadocia Travel Guide

Cappadocia definitely owns a spot in the ‘Must Visit Places in Your Lifetime’ list. There is nothing like it – not just another church, mountain or town. It is a historical land manifested with caves out-of-this-world once used as churches, food storages and stables. Today, you can even sleep in one (search: cave hotel). So, what can you expect from a day trip to Cappadocia? 1. Göreme open air museum 2. Underground […]
