End of July 2014, marks 2 full months into my 2014 journey. So far I have traveled to Turkey, Greece, Germany and Switzerland.
As much as the fact that traveling opens my mind, my heart and my eyes to new culture, new thoughts, new beliefs and new experiences. Traveling also makes me reflect and appreciate what I already have and allows me to share with others my past experiences.
The word “Compare” can be viewed in different ways… Compare can lead to degradation. Compare can cause inspiration. Compare can cause insecurity. Compare can create motivation. Compare can create competition.
Coming from Toronto, Canada – I am constantly reminded all the goodness that Toronto offered – which I have taken for granted!
The saying, “You don’t know what you’ve got until it’s gone” – is very true.
I cannot wait to taste these fresh fruits in a few weeks time!! These fruit trees and vines can be found on roadways of cities and villages in Greece and Turkey.
After 25 days of bus and ferry travel in Greece; solo and with new friends – I’ve gathered a few more observations to share with you.
Curiosity keeps me alert and asking questions. I’d like to talk candidly about them here. This conversation started on this other post. If you already have read it, welcome back!
On the cusp of my return to Turkey, I’m traveling in Rhodes or Rodos. It is one of the Greek islands that offer direct ferries to cross the border into Turkey.
This island not only boasts Byzantine walls and Greek ruins but a medieval fortress and Turkish remnants. Walking down narrow paths and alleyways bring unexpected surprises.
