Personal Tuesday

So I haven’t been very active lately, I just found it very hard to sit down in front of the computer, blog, reply to tweets and emails, I am so behind with replying to emails and blogging assignments.

Last Saturday I had a great time with iDBUS and the BB Bakery. We had an unusual Afternoon Tea on a red double decker bus. It was so much fun and I met the most wonderful people. I also made a very big decision last week and I will leave London for a little bit to move Istanbul. I don’t know if it’s for six months, a year or if I stay for long term yet. It depends how I get on in Turkey and how I feel there. Compared to London I will have a lot more time to myself in Istanbul, the school is everyday from 8:30 until 3:30 so during that time I can go to the gym, learn Turkish, have lunch in peace or explore the Paris of the East. I wouldn’t have an excuse not to go to the gym over there and eating healthy is a lot easier in Istanbul than in London. Fresh vegetables and fruit everywhere and my dislike for Turkish Delight should make losing weight easy. It is also cheap to hire a Personal Trainer in Istanbul. Eating out doesn’t cost much either, you can get very fresh fish in restaurants along the Bosphorus for only a few pounds. I am looking forward to moving, it will all be decided on the 8th of December, I will travel to Istanbul the weekend before then to see if I like everything, check out the new place to live and once all my questions are answered, I will say yes or no. But honestly, I don’t need much convincing.

So what will happen to this blog? Of course I will continue to write this blog, my move is probably only temporary and I will be in London a lot too. Surely I will blog about Istanbul and I will also travel a lot while I am in Istanbul, not just in Turkey but worldwide. Not much changes, I am just located in Istanbul. At least, that’s what I am telling myself. At first I was thinking about changing names, but I have built up such a loyal following and many people advised me not to start from scratch again.

I hope you all have a lovely week, I am looking forward to see some of you on Saturday at the Bloggers Christmas Party in London.
