Peja/Pec – Kosovo’s Natural Beauty

After a long break, I would like to write about Kosovo’s greenest and naturally the most beautiful city, Peja. In every daily visit we visited somewhere new there. The downtown is small, cute and important as it is the hometown of Majlinda Kelmendi, the 2014 Judo champion of the world. It has narrow streets, old…

Munich in 3 Days

Munich, (German München) the capital of Bavaria Land, is a city famous for its quality of living and of course its Octoberfest. Luckily, we have friends who live there and they showed Munich’s beautiful places to us as much as they can in 3 days. First of all, we learned that Munich means ‘home of…

Honeymoon in Singapore and Thailand

– Singapore We went to Singapore and Thailand for our 10-day honeymoon on Dec 25. It was a long way but it was worth every minute. We had read that it was dry season there from the end of December to February; however, it rained for 10 min a few days. We liked its rain,…

(Peaceful) Tirana, Albania 

While living in Kosovo, it’s our goal to explore the Balkan area in depth. We are starting with the common trips now but in time we hope to discover hidden treasures here. Anyway, we visited Albania’s capital Tirana last weekend and I can say that it was a little surprise for me as I didn’t…

Skopje – Matka

As it is our nearest and dearest neighbour, I feel obliged to write about Republic of Macedonia especially its capital Skopje. It is the center of the Balkan Peninsula, offering different ways to go to other Balkan countries. It is highly recommended to make a big tour to see the whole Balkan area starting from…

Rhode Island

Bordered with Massachusetts, Connecticut and Atlantic Ocean, Rhode Island (Ocean State) is worth seeing as it is quite different from the other states. We first went to Newport. It is an intact wooden city and the yachting capital of the US. It has several oceanfront beaches, historic mansions, lighthouses, art museums, restaurants with freshest seafood…

Viva Puerto Rico!

If you look for a place to live without winter, Puerto Rico will be the best choice. It’s neither too hot nor cold at all and it rains for more or less 10 minutes to refresh almost everyday. It offers stunning ocean views, rain forests with varios species, parrots, white beaches, historic castles that we…

Boston -the most European city in the US

I always like the university cities which are famous for their student life and culture. Boston has Harvard and MIT and those universities are like myth in Turkey. If we have any friends studying or studied there, we give them privilege, respect, and admiration. It was great to see their campuses and say that Bogazici…

Chicago

In the Midwest of the US, Chicago is a big vibrant city well known for blues, jazz, comedy, shopping, and dining. That’s why we went to the a Blues place called Buddy Guy and listened to a British group on the first day. For three days, we walked around as it is very easy to wander and tried…

Philadelphia (by Segway)

     I was in Philadelphia in the first week of October, 2015 and you see that the weather was not that bad. It is a very historical and beautiful city. When my dear friend Diana suggested to tour the city on segways, I knew that it would be so fun. We had a nice discount…

Governors Island – NY

This amazing little island is open until the end of September and I had the chance to enjoy it on a Saturday. It’s very close to Manhattan but you can’t believe how silent, historical, peaceful and gorgeous it is. You can go there for cycling, picnic, end lying in the hammocks. Its two forts, Fort…

Little Italy’s San Gennaro Feast

Little Italy, Manhattan, New York I found out this feast online and decided to join as I love Italian food. For 89 years, it’s taken place in NYC by immigrant Italians. They close a very long street and it turned out to be a little Italian town in which hundreds of stalls serving Italian pasta,…
