So, we all know it's been quite a while since my last time. Laugh as much as you like, I'm actually ok with it because I'm trying to accomplish something by not doing it. If I did it, it'd take my eyes off my main goal, which right now is graduating. And I can't let that happen - the eyes-off-goal, not the graduation.
But you know what it's like when you don't do it for too long. At least for me it's really difficult. I get all moody and edgy and like really frustrated. So I decided it's going to happen, just a quickie for in-between. Not much time for any real, proper fun, but this should be good, anyways. That's what best friends are for after all, right?
It's Tuesday today and on Friday I'm going to Istanbul for 6 days - did you think something else was going to happen? You didn't, did you?
Never been before, although I've been to Turkey. I went to the asian side last year - Anatalya and Cappadocia for about a week, there's going to be a post about that, don't worry.
I'm really curious about the place because a good friend of mine used to live there and she says the place is absolutely wonderful. And another friend is actually from there and lives there with her husband and little daughter and I haven't seen her since we met in Barcelona some 6 years ago! And there's really nice CouchSurfers over there, so I hope to meet some of those. So many people are involved in the choice of place here, my best friend saying "I really want to go!" was not the only reason at all.
And then of course there's the place itself - architecture, history, culture, food! So much to see and hear and smell and taste... and we'll take a ferry and cross over from Europe to Asia and back again like over and over and over hehehe. I think it's going to be great.
It's only a short trip, only a few days, but sometimes that's just what you need to keep going on through the drought.
I'll post about it when I'm back - I'm sure it's going to be awesome!!!
Would you like to know if it's been a long time since the last time I ... the other thing you thought about? Yes, you would? Shut up.
