I have long learned from grade school that Venus is the hottest planet in the solar system. And when I grew up, living in one of the hottest nations where the fiery hot sun is up every day, there are boiling moments that I would start believing that my muggy sweaty beach-weather country is not on Earth but in burning Venus!
winter cold: the tropical country version! hahaha!
But not today! At a temperate 24 degrees Celsius, my country now must be in a winter season status! Haha! And it actually takes a cold snap in Korea, Japan and India before my country experience such a clement kind of temperature.
We don’t have winter but now that it is a little cold, I should pull out my winter gears! I don’t wanna experience frostbite! And yeah, I am happy and gone nuts because of this beautiful weather!
It has been more than a week that I have returned after a solo travel in Istanbul. I don’t know if I am to share my awesome experiences in this blog or keep it to myself and be selfish about how it is to be in magnificent Turkey.
While contemplating the thought on whether or not to share my breathtaking journey, I would like to thank Sam Smith’s music for keeping me sane during the lengthy travel time from Manila to Istanbul via Seoul, South Korea. It was a crazy 15 hour flight with 5 hours layover at Incheon Airport each way!
Here is my favorite track in Sam Smith’s recently released album:
I am more keen (of course) on writing about my Turkey journey. It’s just that my experiences were all so beautiful and colorful, I actually don’t know where to start. The title of this song is so like my travel to Turkey, “Baby, You Make Me Crazy”!!!
Tarki! Yu meyk me kreysi…
