Eat, Pray, Love

What a crazy last few months! I just got back from Europe and OMG what a fantastic ride... We went back to France but this time instead of staying in the city of Paris we stayed just outside the city in Chatou, a quaint beautiful neighborhood. We did a lot of sight seeing and walking tours and revisited some of our favorite places. The we went to Istanbul, Turkiye for a few days and all I can say is this is one of the most unique places I have ever been. The history, architecture, Mosque, food, culture, textiles, bakeries, spice bazarrs, boats... I could go on and on. We had a blast in Turkiye waking up early and going all day until the wee hours of the night trying not to miss a beat. I am so grateful and blessed to have had the opportunity to see such a unique country. I can't even wrap my mind around how old this place is and the museums, palaces, mosque, all built hundreds and hundreds  of years ago... I can say that when our time was up in Europe I was quite saddened to come back to the states. There is so much out there and people always say this is a small world but really.... It's bigger than I can grasp. How can so many people not have a clue about other countries, cultures, religions, languages, taste and so on? I can say I know I will revisit Turkiye again I just know it. Some day some how....
