Hello everyone. I am back and in this post you will see why i was away for such a long time.
I hope you are ready for this post. It's gone be huge.
But let me take things from the beginning, now, come with me...
In my student years i had many part time jobs along with my university courses. Not having major expenses i was able to save that money for future plans. Plans to travel outside my country. To see, touch and experience things, different cultures and people. During the summer of 2010 i travelled to all the cities across the Asia Minor (Anatolia) and especially to Smyrna, my grand-grandmother's birthplace. In my last semester i got paid because of my practise in schools. More money meant more ideas. But i had to get my degree first. When my graduation finally came last year, i was super lucky to receive as a graduation gift from my wonderful grandparents, a trip to Constantinople (last March). But the most amazing gift came through my awesome father. A trip to Scotland ladies and gentlemen. One of my biggest dreams came true!! My father was always a big traveller. I grew up exploring all the beauties of my country because of him. I own him so much and i own him all the amazing memories. And i will only hope for more experiences to come in future. To have the opportunity, the right people and the money to travel, i consider it one of the biggest blessings. My wish to you all, to be able to bring all your dreams to life. ❤
Of course i want to travel everywhere. Who will say no to a trip around the world? To explore this planet with all our senses? Scotland was always in my top five must-go list. And i did it!! What an experience! I manage to take 1500 photographs (!) and it would impossible to post them all. So, here are the highlights of my trip. Enjoy!

There are not many pictures of me. I see me everyday. But places like Scotland once (hope more) in a lifetime.
Glasgow Cathedral, also called the High Kirk of Glasgow or St Kentigern's or St Mungo's Cathedral
Finally i saw one from close!! Majestic, breathtaking and a memory i will always treasure.
Glasgow Necropolis (Click the above picture to enlarge and see details!)
Breathtaking, peaceful, one of a kind.
Scott Monument a Victorian Gothic monument to Scottish author Sir Walter Scott.
The Royal Mile (Scots: Ryal Mile) is the name given to a succession of streets forming the main thoroughfare of the Old Town of the city of Edinburgh.
The High Kirk of Edinburgh, known colloquially as St Giles' Cathedral.
Edinburgh Castle is a historic fortress which dominates the skyline of the city of Edinburgh, Scotland from its position on the Castle Rock. Not what i expected (inside) but still, a gorgeous historical site to see. At least the view of the city from the inside the castle was breathtaking!
Excuse my puffy-i-just-got-a-botox-face. Luck of sleep.
Greyfriars Kirkyard is the graveyard surrounding Greyfriars Kirk in Edinburgh, Scotland. It is located at the southern edge of the Old Town, adjacent to George Heriot's School. It was such an outstanding experience to be there. I have so many pictures that i will probably upload in my tumblr page.
Old Calton Cemetery (properly called Old Calton Burial Ground) is a graveyard in Edinburgh, Scotland. It is located on Calton Hill, to the north-east of the city centre. Smaller than the previous but still gorgeous.
