Photo Diary: Büyükada

Two days ago, I was in Büyükada with my lovely friends Edith, Verda and Irmak. I used to go to this island so much when I was younger, but in the past couple of years, because of a reason I don't even know, I never stepped a foot on it. Being there and remembering all those good times felt really great, and what felt even greater was that we rented and rode bikes for almost two hours around the island, in the beautiful nature, just feeling the peace with the birds chirping and the sound of the waves. Our trip actually took much longer than usual since we stopped in every ten minutes to take photos or videos, but it was totally worth it. I really love these girls, they're the only ones from highschool, staying in Istanbul for college, so you'll probably see their faces a lot in here. I also recorded a video when we were on our little lovely trip, with my iPhone again, so enjoy!

İki gün önce, sevgili arkadaşlarım Edith, Verda ve Irmak ile Büyükada'daydım. Bu adaya küçükken çok giderdim ve geçen birkaç senede, nedenini bilmediğim bir sebepten ötürü buraya adımımı bile atmadım. Orada olmak ve o güzel zamanları hatırlamak gerçekten çok iyi hissettirdi, daha da iyisi ise, bisiklet kiralayıp adanın etrafında iki saat boyunca turlamamızdı, harika doğa içinde, kuş cıvıltıları ve dalga sesleriyle beraber gelen huzuru tadarak. Gezimiz, her on dakikada bir durup fotoğraf ve video çektiğimizden dolayı normalden uzun sürdü ama tamamiyle buna deydi. Bu kızları gerçekten çok seviyorum, lise arkadaşlarım arasından üniversite için İstanbul'da kalan sadece onlar, bu yüzden onların suratlarını burada daha çok göreceksiniz. Aynı zamanda, yine iPhone'umla, bu güzel günle ilgili bir video hazırladım, tadını çıkarın!

  2. Dearest Eda, such a wonderful island and you had the perfect idea to rode there with the rented bikes! I would like to bike there immediately, too :) And your girls are all really pretty but you are still my fav <3 Unfortunately I can´t watch the video because the German GEMA doesn´t allow it caused by the music ...

    Wish you a happy and great time!

    Big hugs from Bavaria/Germany, Rena
