My journey to and from the USA


For a wonderful 2 weeks, I visited my amazing family and friends in Virginia; I had a great time.  In the above slideshow you will find many pictures of my journey.

The journey to leave Turkey and return to Turkey was quite tumultuous, to say the least! However, I am back safely and with positivity for the future.

In the slides above you will find pictures of the airports I had to stop in in order to get back home (Frankurt, Sivas, Ataturk, Dulles, Norfolk INT’l and Sabiha Gökçen), roads of the bus trips I had to take to get to and from the airports, my family and other precious things that I thought you might enjoy seeing.

~Until Next Time.

Merry Christmas!


Today my beautiful, sweet friend Elif invited me over for some Christmas dinner.  We had dolmas, bread, pickles and yogurt.  And to drink, she prepared some Turkish tea.  Everything was wonderful and the company warmed my heart on such a day so far away from my family.

God bless you, Elif.
