I’m thinking from where to begin. I really do not know if I did not move here I would be closer to my high school friends or not. Last year in August I moved out and rented a flat around Kartal. So I am near a few of my high school friends since then. At the beginning of this year one of the friends mentioned a tour to Tbilisi at Jolly Tour travel agency. We checked out and decided that it worth to pay for it. We did 🙂 With monthly payments we are still paying for it.
Let me tell you which cities ı was bale to see; #Amasya – #Tokat – #Sivas – #Erzurum – #Erzincan – #Kars – #Artvin – #Ardahan – #Batum – #Tiflis – #Rize – #Trabzon – #Giresun – #Ordu – #Samsun .. in total of 13 cities! Hmm.. they forget Erzincan and Ardahan, I added up, so in total of 15 cities..
Our bus came in to Kartal around 11:30pm at 27th of June. With my friend Şefika we moved in to bus. We were so excited..
Now I need to cook 🙂 So I’m taking a break..
Returned back to writing..If you wonder about my cooking, you can visit W8:30TR – Wednesday 8:30pm #Turkey.
Now let me show you the road we took on the map.
I’m taking another break now. Hehe:) I caught cold 🙁 I’m sneezing!!
I will continue to write tomorrow, after doing some household jobs 🙂
So, keep reading!.
Let me continue tonight, yes all jobs being done already.
Here we were in the Bolu tunnel (on map ,on wiki) I realized it was about 2:30 in the morning, so I needed to have some sleep. My next photo was at 4:43 am. so I was able to sleep two hours or so.. And the darkness of the night slowly was going away..
And around 5:00 am sun light was slowly showing up.. And it was time for breakfast at Ilgaz.. so we stopped by the rest area (on map)
Something went wrong.. Saving it at that point.
After having breakfast we moved again towards #Amasya. I forgot to mentioned, all of those mountains at the area called as Ilgaz mountains
And sun began to show self. Mean time we were slowly coming to Tosya.
Well, it is late at the moment and I’m taking a break since tomorrow..
Time to time there were some constructions going on on the road..
Taking some break here! I want to visit mom..
Lets continue tonight! (July 10, 2014)
Last night I gave mom’s gift to her.
I know that for the first night I do have many photos, but this was first time for me to see around those places in my country. So I took many photos as possible. May be I will do some slides or videos too later on. I’m acting like what ever comes from inside:) I think that makes me happy and makes me keep writing.
I found out that is not so easy to take photos from a bus which is moving 90 km per hour.
Preparing a gif is easy and good, but without music. I will try to find a nice Black Sea music and use that..
It was awesome to watch morning while on the bus. hehe:) I was not driving at the end:)
A few days ago I checked this article from my phone, let me tell you that layout was not nice.. From internet it is not so bad to view all.
We were moving through to a stop to have breakfast.We were at Irmak Dinlenme Tesisleri for breakfast. They have two sitting area. I first went to open place near the road. I saw a small barrack and some tea settings in front. I saw a men just opened the door of the barrack and asked if he has some tea. Meantime I was hearing birds. There were many birds, mostly sparrow. Guy said tea is not ready yet and he was going to make it. So I sat just a small while to listen birds and walked back to other sitting area and had my tea there with lots of noise coming from buses 🙁 Maybe in the video on the link of Irmak Dinlenme Tesisleri you would not realize it, but there were a small fountain with an elephant at the corner; There were no water in the fountain.
Well sorry there were not much to say, many were sleeping on the bus:) and I was taking photos from the window..
#Amasya is going to be our first city to visit..
It is late again!
