sounds like an adventure

As many questions as I ask, you might as well ask some too.   This blog started as a way for me to document my one year adventure abroad that lasted from April 1st, 2012 to April 4th, 2013. New York to Istanbul, Turkey to Greece, Greece to Italy, Italy to Spain, Spain back to Turkey, Turkey until the end. It was an amazing endeavor that I am incredibly grateful for. What then became of this blog was my adjustment in returning to the US. Six months later it turned out my heart led me back across the Atlantic. Now, for life in Istanbul: round two. Round two lasted October 15th, 2014 to October 5th, 2014. Istanbul to London, London to Istanbul, Istanbul to Berlin, Berlin to Istanbul. Now, back in Philly and determined to still be filled with wanderlust in my hometown!

"yiyip bitirmek"

"to consume," as in "Kıskançlık onun içini yiyip bitirdi."

They said it translates to “He is consumed with jealousy.” But to me it looks more like “Jealousy has consumed his insides.” Could be because I’m dramatic.
