Let me just say..
I LOVE TURKEY!
(no, not the meat. Although I do love that as well)
I don't have time right now to post all the important pics so I thought I would post some fun ones just to show the fun time we all had!
So here is a little preview of our amazing trip.
|A nice treat in the Tel Aviv airport. That is some great hair, if you ask me.|
|Trying to spell out TURKEY in Istanbul.. not sure if it is too legible though.|
|Me and Vladi showin off our riches, well MY riches. 50 lira, baby! Which actually isn't that much.|
|Just enjoying the view of the Blue Mosque.|
|Kyle and I having a romantic moment in front of the Blue Mosque (which by the way is beautiful)|
|Ethan and his Harem.|
|The majority of our time was spent riding in the bus so me and Boone found a secret room under the bus. This moment only lasted about 5 minutes though due to the horrifying smell of feet.|
|We were lucky to have a bonfire and dance party on the beach at our hotel in Selchuk. SO MUCH FUN! This is Shealeigh, Dan and I "dancing in the moonlight"|
|Nice awkward posing in Pergamon. Pillar pics are very common here so you gotta switch up the posing.|
|Jumping pic on the beach at our 3rd hotel (we stayed at 4 different hotels in a matter of a week) in Surmeli Efes, which is near Ephesus.|
|How come I never see these hairties in America? They are so hot.|
|The shop man let me try on his cool boots, even if I didn't buy them. Sweet sweet man.|
|So much confusion when I saw this man. Multiple hats on his head and creepy dolls. That's the way to go.|
|Funny hats in the Grand Bazaar.|
|Shealeigh and I just doing some good ol' airplane on the beach at our 2nd hotel in Selchuk (Obviously I could be spelling theat horribly wrong.. that Turkish language is confusing).|
|Showing off my flexibility (or lack of, it was very painful) in Assos.|
|At one of our hotels they had a disco club.. We went... "hey, you come here often?"|
|Jen and I with some Turkish Delight!|
I will update on all the details later but for now I hope you enjoy these "fun" pictures. I finally got my camera back so I was lucky enough to take most of these with my own camera! :) Turkey was great and I am so glad that I am blessed with this opportunity to be here and to do all these wonderful things and to be learning new things every day! So grateful.
P.s. A shout out to my niece, Alyssa, It is her 8th birthday today! I can't believe she is already 8 years old! What a fun, exciting, and joyful girl she is and I love her very much!
|PJ's on Christmas Eve! Glad I have this girl to use as an excuse to still act like a child. :)|
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ALYSSA!
