Why Barcelona is the most camper unfriendly place?

Some people know our camper coast camper trip starting from Venice, travelling all the Mediterranean coast of Italy, France, Spain until Cadiz city. Coming at the end of the travel after 3 months, we stayed in 27 different cities or towns so far.
Making the travel in budget we rarely stayed in camping areas. We were parked in a parking or on a street in the center and we didn’t have any problem. Even when we come first time to Barcelona by camper, there was huge free parking at the beach and we are happy to park there one week. Knowing Barcelona’s fame about robbery and hearing the robbery stories didn’t ease us tough. (more…)

Longlife - lifeexpectancy

The secrets of LONG life

Italy is the country where people live the longest after Japan (the average age is 86) with the life expectancy at age 85. Actually you don’t need any statistics to understand the reality, you just have to look around on the street. You can see people in theır eighties and nineties jumping around, going shopping, riding bicycles or meeting friends and having some wine. As I emerged from the cultural shock, I observed and understood deeper of life style and relatedly about long-healthy life.

Eating For Living VS Italian Food

I don’t know about others, but I used to be a person who ate for living and I was happy with that. I never ate too much or searched for food in my life. Often I forgot to have dinner and remembered when I was already in bed muttering to myself “Oh shit I forgot to have dinner”. Yes, it is possible and this happened many times to me. Of course living alone and not having the responsibility to cook for anyone doesn’t make your eating style better. (more…)

Why should you marry a foreigner?

Why I did?

After having so many experiences, I began to form the theory that having a foreign partner makes life more interesting. It’s exciting to spend time getting to know their culture and exchanging language. It turns out it was a brilliant idea.

Fortunately, my spouse wasn’t the only good result of my theory. As time goes on, I’ve started to realize that there were even more good reasons to make this decision and I’m so glad I did. With a clear mind and the ability to see the consequences from both sides, I’m sure this has been one of the best choices I have made in my life.

Pumpkin Festival in Italy

As a person coming from a muslim country, it was the first time for me to see a Pumpkin Festival. I was  so happy and excited for that. Yayy! Believe me or not but also one of my dreams was spending Christmas or Thanks-giving (for me not so different) with local people. Imagine how I was desperate. Lol. No worries! I already spent my Christmas with locals last year. Still eating turkey is pending, but it is okay. I watched a lot of American movies. Well, Halloween could be the other important event to be spent with locals. Local means for me, people who celebrate an event by their own culture. (more…)

Similarities of Latin (Romance) Languages

People say that I learn a language fast when I start to make sentences in Italian after learning French and Spanish.

Will you marry me? But Turkish style!

What is a Turkish wedding?

Marriage is very important in a person’s life and in Turkish society. When I tell my Turkish friends that marriage is less important in Europe and that lots of people live with their romantic partner without getting married, people get very surprised. Except in a very few areas, you cannot do this in Turkey. In Turkey, virginity is still a very important and sensitive topic, so we see early marriages in Turkey for this reason. (more…)
