Şu gördüğünüz yer, Bursa'nın Yahudi Mahallesi.... Fakat Demokrat Parti iktidarından sonra ailelerin çoğu Kudüs'e göçüyor. Tek tük de olsa mahallesini terk etmeyenler var. Bir ayrıntı daha: Yahudiler dışında burası diğer gayrimüslim halkın da ikamet etti bir nokta olmuş tarih boyunca. @bursanindaveti ne bu bilgi için teşekkürler.
What a view from our tower! Today's kids grow up in a world where human kind is already so much more ahead of what we dared to dream when my generation were kids: keeping the environment, new power resources, flying so cheap like you are taking the bus or travelling with a magic wand in your pocket - the smartphone, that is also a flashlight🔦 (when finding your way back to hotel from remote beach road), currency converter💰, compass, map 🗺 or even better the Atlas. Not mentioning the other main functions of the cellphone like calling 📞or 🎥 . And your private transportation "the metal horse" 🐴is just minutes away...(#Uber or Grab in Asia) How else do you find your smartphone useful for on your travels?⠀⠀
I want to wish a happy birthday to an immensely talented lady. @sky1967 captures lovers, solitary souls & rain in Paris like no other and seeing my favourite city through her eyes is one of my daily pleasures here on Instagram. If you don't know her account already, I strongly suggest you have a look.
Joyeux anniversaire Brigitte!
Stellenbosch |▪️#WeTravelFor @MajekaHouse - This place was our first stop in wine country and they set the bar really high. The entire staff at Majeka House, including the owner, were so hospitable and went out of their way to ensure we had the best time. They have a garden on the property where they grow all the produce that they serve on their menu. Lastly, their rooms 😱. This was our room #101 and we learned upon check in that we had our own pool, shared only with rooms #102 and #103 . If #Stellenbosch is on your list, make sure you stay at #MajekaHouse 👍🏼
Cayman viewing in the dark last night. We stayed far away from the big guys, but this baby was safe enough to get a little closer in the boat for a pic. I have NO IDEA how our local guides could spot this little guy from across the lake with a flashlight, but thanks to their eagle eyes we found many! Not going to lie...I was pretty scared in the pitch black with caymans in the water!

It is important to not dwell in the past. It cannot be changed, and therefore should not be fretted over. Some times, though, when you find yourself struggling to move forward, take a quick glance over your shoulder and see how far you have come. It may provide you with the encouragement to keep pushing on and working towards the important goals in life.
Only a few days to go until my adventure in #Jordan begins. I keep wondering what to expect; I hope to meet some local people and refugees, see some beautiful architecture, marvel at nature and try to fit into my clothes when I leave... I just added Karak to my list of places to visit and, whilst I am very excited about exploring Petra, my heart races every time I imagine Wadi Rum and the tough nomadic life. And I keep looking at the map and asking myself the same question: what is keeping me from Israel? But maybe that's a conversation for another time... I still haven't decided if I need hiking boots or not (thoughts?) and I definitely need to buy a sleeping bag for my night or two in the desert. Much to do but, right now, deep breaths and gratitude for the extraordinary possibilities and adventures life has afforded me.
