Bodrum

IMG_4675I don’t know if trips to Turkey can now really be recommended because of some riots that have happened recently, but at least still a month a agoย a day trip from Kos to Bodrum in Turkey was pretty nice and easy to carry out. I wanted to go to Turkey to for the bazaars (and to see if my memories of the country are still true, I’ve been there when I was maybe eight?).

There really is a lot to buy for a cheap price, but unfortunately almost everything was fake and the quality didn’t seem to be the best. For example, I would have wanted a new purse, but didn’t feel like buying a one with a poorly made “Mikael Kors” sign… Apart from that, Bodrum seemed really charming.

Pre-Blog Travels

I was just going through my old albums and files for finding pictures for a scrapbook, and I found real treasures! I’ve really been busy, didn’t even realize how many cool places I’ve been able to see and experience and with so many great people!

So here are some (certainly not all) memories from my past travels that have never been reported in my blog either. I could spend forever just studying old pictures and remembering what was the moment like when they were taken…

(In some the pictures the quality is unfortunately really bad though, just took a snapshot of some of them with my phone from the albums.)

A laguna in El Gouna, Egypt and the first photo I've ever judiciously photographed. I had of course taken a lot of pictures before but I remember that in this one I really gave thought to the composition and how would the picture turn out... I was on 6th grade.
