Volubilis, everlasting proof of Roman Settlement in Fes

23.01.18 09:17 PM By Putri - Comment(s)

We had plenty of time in Fes, like five days and four nights…

Okay, I admit, it’s not even a week, but in my defends five days could be a full life span for some kind of insects out there. Although our stay was relatively short in Fes, we managed to not only enjoy the Fes Medina (and got lost in i...

Riding Hot Air Balloon in Cappadocia, Turkey

11.02.17 01:20 AM By Putri - Comment(s)

When we were planning the trip to Cappadocia, we thought we wouldn't go on any hot air balloon for two reasons: that ride costs a fortune (about 200$ per person for about an hour of ride) and I am afraid of heights. Oh wait, let me rephrase that, I am not necessarily afraid of heights, I am simply a...

Cruising Along the Mediterranean in Turkey

31.01.17 12:50 PM By Putri - Comment(s)

Before planning our trip to Turkey, we had no idea what the blue cruise was (or even heard about it), but after I read about it, hopping on a blue cruise adventure became one of my most pivotal purpose in life (excuse the exaggeration). The Blue cruise is basically sailing along the Mediterranean on...

Pamukkale, the Utterly Gorgeous Mineral Hotspring

I am a sucker for natural waterbodies. Rivers, lakes, even ponds, you name it, I love it, and I must have at least dipped my feet in 98% of waterbodies I see IRL, especially if its clear running waterbodies. So when I read about Pamukkale, the famous mineral water travertines in Turkey, I ...

Izmir, Turkey: Isa Bey Mosque, The house of Virgin Mary and Ephesus

Selçuk is the first city we visit after Istanbul. It took us 11 hours by night bus to get to this place. The night buses in Turkey are mostly very spacious (it has more leg space than any coach class flight I have ever had!) and it is often has wifi available. It's a fancy ride for a cheap price, an...

Selcuk, Izmir - Turkey: Temple of Artemis

12.10.16 12:15 PM By Putri - Comment(s)

What comes accross of your mind when you heard the word ‘Artemis’? a graceful Goddes? Ancient greek?

To be honest, what comes to my mind for that word is the white cat from Sailormoon. This is what happens if you grew up reading mangas instead of ancient histories...

Artemis cat from the Sailormoon lo...

Istanbul street food, sorry it took me so long to discover you.

Being from Jakarta, the capitol of Indonesia(and street food district), I grew up eating street food as part of my daily diet. When I moved to Québec City where street food is inexistant, I didn't know how to feed myself for the first few months after my arrival, seriously.

We went on a trip to Turk...

Bosphorus Cruise

Bosphorus strait was one of the most recomended places to visit when you are in Istanbul. This is where two continents meet; Europe and Asia. The strait connects the Black Sea to the Sea of Marmara, and ultimately the Mediterranean. Its strategical importance has been known throughout history and ma...

Hagia Sophia

One question that came to mind as soon as I stepped in to the Hagia Sophia mosque : HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT THIS SPECTACULAR BUILDING BUILT WHEN ELECTRICITY WASNT EVEN INVENTED ?

I had to round up my pashmina tight around my head and neck, not necessarily to follow the dresscode but to prevent m...

This is truly the most grandiose mosque I have ever seen. It is amazing how people is proud and love their religion so much, they build such a grand and amazing place to pray and still keep it's serene ambiance. 

The Sultan Ahmet mosque sits juxtaposed with Hagia Sophia, it is definitely one of ...
