I am now back in Istanbul. After spending a long time with the boat life I thought I would love to be back in a city. I do like Istanbul and living here, but some parts of living on a boat makes it really hard to adapt back to this life!
First of all, I am finding it hard to wear shoes! 🙂 Shane was telling me before he doesn’t like wearing shoes. He was walking around barefoot and I was forcing him to put on some type of footwear. But, now that’s a pretty hard thing for myself (I am sure he is laughing now as he reads it). [Shane – for the record….I am….so much :)]
Secondly, the quite life on a boat was great and the stress level was very low. Since Istanbul is a hectic city, finding quite moments can be hard!
Also, of course, when you’re on a boat you need less things, especially clothing! I liked just wearing bikinis and a t-shirt!
I think now that I have the boating virus in my blood it is going to be hard to keep away from this life style!
PS – of course there are many things I like about being in Istanbul. I missed my friends and Turkish food! I am so lucky that all my friends are either cooking the things I like just for me or going out to my favorite restaurants!
