Moving Again | Italy to Turkey

Moving from Italy to Turkey

It has been one year we left dark and rainy Ireland. Last year we moved to Italy two people and now we are leaving three. Italy was good destination point to give a birth with its naturalist and conscious doctors and good quality food. However, getting close to winter and missing baklava and kebab was enough to pull us toward to the Turkey.


How can two adults and a baby move by a car? 

This was the question we were looking for an answer recently. How could we find space for our clothes while baby stroller, baby bed and baby bathtub fill all the bagage.

Thankfully we have sold our problem with 320 litres of car top box.
