When I first discovered the magical world of blogging somewhere in April 2012, I’d started posting my funny little stories about life as ex-pat living in Altinkum, Turkey. I wasn’t quite sure what to expect and thought I’d be a bit of a Billy No Mates with the odd person accidentally discovering the blog on a rare occasion when they were searching for something far more interesting. So I was delighted when gradually I was joined by people who shared in my humour and when some of my fellow bloggers enquired how I came to be living in Turkey,the Honeymoon stories were born. On the recommendation, of another blogging friend, I indexed them all below for easy access, should anyone want to read them. For those of you that do, I hope you enjoy reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them, here’s the story so far:
In The Beginning (Part One)
Sometimes not getting what you want is a wonderful stroke of luck
When one door closes ………… pack your bags & fly away!
When life hands you pineapples, make pina coladas!
In life you’re either a passenger or a pilot; your choice!
Do you ever wish you had a second chance to meet someone again for the first time?
Cocktails; because no great story ever began with a salad
Be a traveler not a tourist
Work like a captain, play like a pirate
Every new friend is an adventure; the start of more memories
Shake it like a polaroid picture
The first step to living the life that you want, is leaving the life that you don’t want
May all your holiday blues be the ocean & the sky
Because not all witches live in Salem
Gardeners know all the best dirt
Loving & losing; different only by one letter & a million degrees of pain
Somedays you just want to unleash all your flying monkeys
Sometimes, just sometimes when people say forever they mean it
Dear Past, thank you for your lessons & Dear Future I’m ready & p.s. thank you for another chance
