All right, I don't even know where to begin. I have left my job and life as I know it behind, in the pursuit of my dreams, some new inspirations and culture. And Lord, am I EVER Happy I did it! It is funny because I know a lot of people who say they want this and that out of their lives, but they never seem to leave their comfort zone to pursue, or even have a little taste of what they think they deserve in life. Well being the Leo that I am, I don't wait for things to happen. I packed my things and headed off to a whole new continent and started my new adventure/life in Turkey. Turkey is something else. I have never been in a country where people are so different and yet so close to my background. It was a cultural shock but yet I was so delighted to see so many different things and places. I started my trip in a place called PATARA. A get away from busy Istanbul, a chilled Mediterrean coast line, surrounded by dunes, hills and warm sea water. All I did for 7 days was sunbathe, drink mojitos and catch up with the boyfriend whom I had not seen for almost 4 months. Call me a gypsy but I somehow can make anywhere my home very quickly, especially if the place is +37 with a hot sun, sweet drinks and good food. Welcome to Part 1 - Turkish Delight (I am sorry I have no outfit posting, because I was literally 24/7 in a bikini).
It was my first time in the Mediterrean Sea, my soul was cleansed; for those of you who don't believe it to be true, a swim in the ocean can cure many things! I did spend my days at the beach to only get back in the late afternoon to the hotel, sit by the pool to drink more Mojitos, snack on fresh watermelon and a Turkish appy called "Cheese Rolls". Being exposed to so many new dishes that included so much cheese (my weakness did not help in keeping me in shape; actually since the beginning of this trip I have forgotten what it is to be healthy, all I do is eat + drink and repeat! Cheers!!!
