Story of My Saturday

Whether it's sailing or knitting, we want to be a part of something with other people. This is my story from early morning till late evening (on the Asian side). I like spring and its colors simply because green and blue both seems almost iridescent, and it feels like I am walking on a silk carpet...!

Special thanks from my heart to Liz and Lucie
for their fantastic greetings!


  1. Happy spring. Come see my music giveaway! :)

  2. Just stopping by to wish you a Happy Easter, Nihal. Your photos are lovely as they always are. I can taste those sweet strawberries! The photo of the water reminds me of our stay at the hotel in Antalya. I loved the sound of the sea as it washed up on the shore below the hotel's restaurant balcony. I am so glad that my husband's job took him so many places and that I could go along. The flowers are lovely, too. None here yet. Still too cool. Happy Spring and have a lovely day!

  3. Wonderful! Thank you for these beautiful snippets of Turkish life!!

  5. Nihal, thanks for this description of your Saturday with many beautiful images!
    About successful italian brands, I have some names:
    Fiat, (ever-present!) for the famous cars
    Armani, Biagiotti, Valentino, Versace, for the fashion
    Tim (Telecom Italia Mobile), for the telephones and internet.
    There are many more, of course!
    Happy Easter!

  6. Nihal,
    I felt like I was walking with you!
    You should see the beautiful tulips at Uskudar square near quayside and Baglarbasi near Capitol today!
    I expect from you a "Tulips in Istanbul" post very soon!
