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.

Living in Istanbul

There is no doubt that I’m living in one of the most beautiful cities in the world, Istanbul.
It is the only city that straddles two continents. Living in such a unique city has
some outcomes like traffic, noise, pollution … etc.  Let me tell you what happens if you’d like
to see 3 people in different district in the same city. Actually, it happens almost everyone who
live in this city. This situation is unique to Istanbul among 81 cities in Turkey.

I left home at 8:30 a.m. and I was at home at 5:00 p.m. I met 3 people and all over conversation
took one and half hours, remain part spent at traffic jam. I used 10 public transportation. It felt me like making a big journey, at the end I felt exhausted so I couldn’t blog it last night as I panned.

Even though this terrible situation, still I love Istanbul.


I’m missing Istanbul even I’m turning back to night.
