Daily Life

Take a peek at what I did last week..

This is the place where I used to show what I did last week in the series Pictures Monday- now called Daily Life. It was a peek into the matters of my daily life in Istanbul. I don’t know why, but I’ve quit this series quite some ago. Maybe because Istanbul was just horrible at some point. Maybe because I was at a dark place myself in life for a while. Or maybe life was just too boring to share. Or maybe just because I was too fed up with the quality of the pictures of my phone and too lazy to carry a compact camera around with me. I honestly don’t remember, and all of them sound like good possibilities. Either way, fact is that I didn’t continue and still am not sure whether I should or not. You know.. there is just not so much going in life on at the moment. But I do miss it sometimes. It is super nice to be able to take a look back, enjoy old memories and remember those feelings.. So maybe, maybe.. maybe I’ll continue in the near future and will give you a peek into my daily life again ;-)

I have some serious cravings for chocolate lately. I actually ate two of those chocolate bars and half of the Islak kek which Ksenia brought. Islak kek means literately wet kek and it`s so good….

It`s interesting how living in another country changes you, not only mentally but also in the taste of food. On of the things I missed most when we were in The Netherlands was Pogača. Kinda…

Good food means good life! We verbleven een dag in Pamukkale. Mooi hè? Het is jammer dat het zo ontzettend toeristisch is, je wordt letterlijk omver gelopen halverwege de dag. Maar als je `s ochtends…

Sleeping Beauty! Ik moest naar de orthodontist want m`n draadje achter m`n onderste tanden sprong los. Echt niets kan hier normaal gaan. Bij de eerste afspraak konden ze het niet maken en bij de tweede…
