Here’s to the crazy ones…

Standard

It’s final. I’m hopelessly addicted to pashminas. They’re just so soft and pretty! How could I help but love them so much? We made another trip to the Grand Bazaar this morning before our friend’s flight got into Istanbul, getting soooo many pretty pashminas that I will love forever. I don’t think I have any reason to buy a regular scarf ever again.

The rest of the weekend was just relaxing, walking around, showing our friend to our favorite sights so far (AKA the guy who sells mussels by the water…we really just wanted an excuse to go back there). A reminder was home, but it made it hard to go back to Beirut the next day. It’s been a long five months, with ups and down, and I’m about ready to go home to all my crazy people. Of course, I still have some things to do before leaving Lebanon, like completing my scuba diving certification class and going to the beach every weekend (Boston’s beaches suck, and Lebanon’s aren’t world class but they’re definitely a step up), but at this point the end is so near its pretty much just a countdown.

I’m definitely going to return to Turkey as soon as I can though. I feel like I barely got to scratch the surface and there’s so much more to see and do and learn. This was a great week and I can’t wait for my next chance to return to this huge, diverse country (where the people and cats are so friendly!).

About gabbyjockers

Just a student who loves to travel, eat, cook, have adventures and hang out with awesome people! I'm restless and want to see the whole world. Music powers me and I love listening to new things and going to shows with my crazy friends. I grew up in South Florida and made the move up to Boston for college as soon as I could. Right now I'm doing an internship in marketing for The Alleyway in Beirut and it's pretty exciting being here!
