Two weekends ago, I went to Sinop for a friend’s birthday. It felt fantastic to finally get out of Ankara and see another part of Turkey! Sinop is in the north on the Black Sea. Most Turks that I meet from the Black Sea region are very proud of their cities, food and general culture. I have to admit that I loved it there too. I never thought that being away from water would be a big deal, but the familiar feeling of being home in Florida came back to me.

The weekend had the feeling of a women’s retreat. There were 10 girls crammed in a one-bedroom apartment. We spent the time eating, wandering the city and listening to live Black Sea folk music.

I guess I’m the only person who knows what’s going on…


I will definitely be back next year!
