We determined that if, or when family visits they will need to take all of their preconceived notions of how things are or should be…and leave them in America. This place is really amazing if you can throw everything you know out the window and look at it with open eyes and accept it for what it is.
This place is definitely different. We keep saying it’s kind of surreal to think we actually live here, and it really is. It’s a different world than we’ve ever known. And it’s awesome in it’s own way. Never in a million years would I have guessed we would be spending a Sunday, lounging by the Mediterranean ocean in Turkey, but I’m so, so glad that God gave us this experience. In some ways it feels like this is what I was meant to do in life. There isn’t much that makes me happier than exploring a new place, taking pictures, and writing about it to look back on for years to come. To me this is life. This is living.
