Ryan and I are now living in Turkey! I am so excited about this crazy opportunity and I can't wait to blog about all of our adventures! I am going to attempt while I am here to blog at least every other day. Hopefully I am successful! I will show you the good, the bad and the ugly of all that goes on here in Karsiyaka! At the end you can decide if you want to ever travel here or not! The way it has been going so far...YOU SHOULD COME! It is so different then I had pictured. Yes it is better then expected! Lot's of baklava, pitas, kebabs, "taksis" and the people are SO friendly! They are so patient with us asking our questions and doing some sort of sign language. They have most likely been greatly entertained with me trying to talk louder expecting that they will understand me easier! Our apartment needs a little TLC but with my amazing mom and sister here we will have this place whipped in to shape in no time! Wish us luck...here are some before pictures! After pictures will hopefully be posted soon!
