Amsterdam again

On friday I was in Amsterdam to get a UK visa.

The weather was lovely. So I took so many pictures.

I went to De Pijp area which I liked a lot . I believe now Amsterdam is prettier than a tourist place.

Autumn is perfect in this open-air theme park city, Amsterdam.

All photos are taken by me.

This trip was a rehab for me.

It softens all my thought , detoxicated my feelings.

Oisterwijk

Yesterday, while I was going to the university, I was astonished again by a Small town called Oisterwijk.

I decided to go there after school ofcourse if he agrees with me and has a lust to go there.

Thanks to sunshine and his boredom at work, it was so easy to convince him.

The town was prettier and cozier than I saw while trespassing by the train.

Old but fancy people were at the restaurants drinking wine, some old ladies were driving cabrio cars.

For an hour we project our retirement plans. Coziness of this town enchanted us.

There were issues we need to discuss, but we postponed . Just talked how we feel, an openair therapy session was the thing we need.

Please visit this town if you want to calm down yourselves. But ofcourse sunshine makes it perfect.

Black and White in a city

Today I took many black&white photographs in Eindhoven to join a photography competition.

I realized even the buildings are in a modern shape and new. Black and white European city photography reminds me only war. WWII specifically.

Here are the few of them.

Honey Mooon

I don’t know since when I haven’t been writing to this blog. Let’s say 1 year at most. 

Big alterations required time. 

I am married now. A big friendly wedding followed by a marvelous honeymoon in Santorini. 

I will tell about each detail of this 1 long year but I will begin with happy end . 

First we have just 1 week for our vacation so, we don’t want to spend our limited days on a flight and trying to overcome jetlag. 

Europe is the target for honeymoon under such conditions. Indeed I traveled many countries, a summerish holiday is demanded and Greece was winner due to it’s physical and cultural proximity. 
santorini was the answer. We looked through AirBnB and booked our place in akrotiri, santorini on December. 


This is or place Aura Marina apartments in Akrotiri.

Booked our ticket on application Hopper which shows the highest and lowest rates of the route , and calculates when it could be lower. 

Aeagen airlines have non-direct flights to Santorini. First you must stop in Athens Airport, a decent and shop lover style. Later you need to take a 45 minutes flight to Santorini. 


Santorini is a small and a mountainous island with 3 big villages. Oia ( the symbol of the island), Thira ( the center village, port is there) , Akrotiri, ( small and southern village, close to beaches) 

You better rent an ATV or car. It is a toursitc island in Greece do not wait proper public buses. And please enjoy your time and do not depend on anything. 

Island is not cheap. We spend for our dinners ( 3 mezes, 1 main course, ouzo or wine (glass)) 50-70 euro in different parts of the island. 

Sunset is incredible, I think in aegean region is incredible for sunset but Oia and Thira is special due to its architecture. 


For a greek tavern try To psaraki ( mussels and fish fresh) 


For fine dining try Selene.


For breakfast and bakery try Svoronos. 

For wine tasting go to Hadzjidakis . 


Try vinsantoo !! 😋 delicious 

We enjoyed we liked the island and We rested . 

now actual times begin…  a just married life
