With only a weekend dedicated to the visiting my aunt, there was much to do too much exploration of either Hasanbey Köyü the village she lives in or Gönen itself a distinct, so doing simple things like becoming friends with cows, driving a tractor (oh I can't believe in myself but I learned to drive that huge device:), eating my first season's quinces, feeding the chickens in her farmhouse... while touristy are also very rewarding if you are free yourself from the mindset of being a guest. It's all about making the most efficient of where you are with the time you are given. And, in that mindset you can really appreciate anything.
Oh special thanks to my dear Auntie for making this citygirl in an unusual land feel at wonderland and in utmost comfort. Most of the things were a very first in my life. Worthy to pursue!
So these are a few important things I've learned from my trip down under:
.Learn through participation
.Digest the content can be the next big thing (for your network of friends)
.That which does not kill you;)
.Age? No, experience matters
.Be a tourist in your own home (forget your title!)
