I’m not where I thought I would be at 35. But when is that the case? We all have life plans...checklists and very few of us end up where we thought we would be. I never thought I would be spending my 35th birthday in Germany dancing to 80s German pop music and downing tequila shots.
If your friends can’t get you drunk...then who can?
I left Italy..a bit fatter (4kgs and counting) filled with amazing experience and more proficient in Italian. I learned the art of doing nothing and living la dolce vita. Germany provided a transition for my return to Turkey.
I am realising that you can do what you want in life. I do not need to settle (well, I will eventually when my savings run out). The world is my home. 85,000 kilometers travelled: Bangkok, London, Istanbul, Brodrum, Rome, Naples, Milan, Torre del Lago, Cologne. Next stops: Istanbul, Ankara, Belgrade, Zurich, New York, Washington, Boston, Chicago, Cape Town, Nairobi, Buenos Aires, Sao Paulo, Bogota....?
I left my heart in Istanbul. I’ve decided to come back to further discover this amazing city.
