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.

I also share more miscellaneous things here:

I got my hair cut yesterday and today I’m wearing a yellow dress. So, that’s a thing :)

I may also take myself to read a book in a tea garden in Çengelköy.

I am going to Berlin tomorrown

The only thing I know I want to do today in the way of last experiences in Turkey/Istanbul is eat menemen and Turkish breakfast and watch the sunset at Moda Park.

As far as loose ends I’d like to sell my Turkish phone and donate some clothes and fixins to the squat a couple blocks from my house.

Yup, that and reading and packing and listening to music and looking for hosts on CS and washing clothes.

The list was simple in my head. Eeek!

It’ll be alright!

Maybe I’ll also write down some anxieties and gratitude.

Happy Tuesday.

This is relevant as I prepare to leave Istanbul for good. I’m sure I’ll visit but it’s not my home anymore.
