Let the winter break begin!

Sometimes there are people you feel very strongly about; whether this may be intense hatred toward some of them, pure love or intrigue, lust, passion... Sometimes there are objects you feel very attached to; the kind that might not have any physical value but mean a lot more than that diamond necklace you've been eyeballing. Pieces of paper haphazardly ripped from an old notebook with a note from a loved one, a plastic toy that probably came with one of them cheap kid magazines, a book you read in class and you still keep (not because the book was particularly intriguing but because the class you read the book in was just incredible!). I can go on and on. Then sometimes there are places. A country, a county, town, city, village....

I have done so on many occasions, but this is yet another post about how much I love IZMIR. I will always love my family and secondly I will always love this city. Why? Because the people are kind. Why? Because the scenery is just perfect, you have the right balance of the coast, mountains and palm trees. Why? Because it is the only true place I will call home. It is the only place I am always excited to go back to and stay. Forever. 

Being back here once again for a beautiful holiday season feels incredible! 2013 has been a great year and as we are getting close to 2014 I want to rediscover why I love Izmir so much besides the obvious few reasons I have stated. In the next 5 days I have set myself a task of walking the city and show you why this city makes me love her more and more every day, minute, second. I want to take you on a journey. Fasten your seat belts, it will be a bumpy but a pleasant ride.

Finally at home around midnight. Why I love Izmir? Because it feels like I have never left.

Just because there are apartments everywhere, doesn't mean there won't be any decorations for the festive spirit!

Finally back to the flashing lights

Flashing lights. Flashing lights. Everywhere. 

Skyline as viewed from my window. On top of the world.
