  1. I agree with you on Turkey. Its an amazing country. I fell in love with it just by traveling in Istanbul and Eskesehir. The food, the architecture, the markets, raki, the cuisine and istikal street are just amazing. Looking forward to visit it next year again…:)

    • I’m hoping to visit it next year too. If you go in the summer, I highly recommend the Black Sea coast in the north; it’s stunning, especially with all the sunflower fields in bloom. Also very non-touristy.

  2. What a passion to find in Spain! Spanish knows how-to-live-life in its purest form. They ‘drink life to its lees’. Very nicely written articles on Spain. What a vivid imagery and Spanish replica in your words….
