Eid al-Adha

After a long and tough journey I arrived my home yesterday. In normal conditions it takes 8 or 9 hours from Istanbul to Konya using a bus but ours broken down between Ankara and Bolu and it took 3 hours to get an aid to change the transportation vehicle. So, it took 12 hours. During 3 hours wait time, I got cold and barely getting better.

In my religion these days are called Eid al-Adha and whole week is officially holiday. I usually spent my time with my family in holidays and this is the main reason why I’ve traveled. Konya is one of the most facinating cities in Turkey and it is best known with Mevlana(k.s.). You can learn more about Mevlana(k.s.) and Konya using wikipedia or just I ask me 🙂

Eid Mubarek to all my brothers and sistes.

    Wow, you’re from Konya? Fascinating place. Haven’t been there yet though. Actually, I was told be friends that it’s a very conservative place and I shouldn’t go there at all.

    Although in the past people also told me not to go to Bulgaria (where I lived for half a year) and it was one of the best decisions I ever made… So I won’t let that stop me 😉

    Yes, I’m from Konya and all my parents and family live here. I bet Istanbul is much more conservative than Konya 🙂 . Konya is a mystic place so sometimes foreign people may call it conservative. I suggest you to see Konya and also, Anatolia.
