So after something like 3days of just sleeping we decided its time to get the ball rolling! and roll it did! Robin and i had spent two days of hard core CV dropping, between us we dropped something like 70 sheets all together.

I had a try out day at a cafe called MECCA seems nice but after my second try out day the manager told me they weren't looking fr anyone at the moment... and i got payed $50 for 8 hours work. oh well learn and live. But soon after that Robin got a nice wee job at a Belgium bar/restaurant. i had an other try out day at a night club, it went well and now i have worked about 6shifts doing bar work and things like that... its OK

So that take us up to about now really...


i will move over the next two day fast. so from London to LA and then a nice 29 hours in flight all together! s i watched movies and movies and movies and it was great!


We got a bus to the city center and then found our hostel very easily and then soon after we checked in it was time for bed! night and good morning!

Erasmus and other things

So i wanted to add more photos of thing so i will and also some photos of the hostel we stayed in.

This is an Image from the Palace place that we went i thought it was a really nice roof thing so as you can see i took a photo!

also i noticed in the city of Istanbul that there was lots of these yellow arms all over the place so i took like over 30 photos of them in different places but here is one a ground level i like it!!!!
So yes the place that we stayed was great and i don't think i put any photos of it up and i don't have anyway photos to put up... yet. so there we go enjoy. somuch for more and other things sorry...

Istambul again

SOOOOoooOoO back to the city (im writing this when im in New Zealand oh well...)

yes robin and i returned to the big city and this time we meant business!! we went to see all the good things like the Blue mosque, Topkapi palace and much much more super cool things!!! oh the grand bazaar!!! woopwoop! but some photos first will give you an idea of how lovely the places we saw were...makes sense i don't know.... PHOTOS

this is the Blue Mosque, i had to put a head scarf on because im a wOooman... and Robin didn't.

and the next image is inside the Mosque, was a really great thing to see. really quiet and special the building was SOOOO big and the walls and roof were lovely! We were only aloud in the back of the Mosque because there were people praying in the back!

We went to another Mosque called Saint Sofia, we payed to enter because we were told it was a really great thing to see but... not so much there was massive scaffolding in the middle and not really all that great so i will only show one of the good photos form this place.

mmm it was still nice but not all that i thought it was cracked up to be. and we had to pay and the Blur Mosque, which i though was nicer we didn't have to pay for but oh well learn and live.

Oh we were really good and cultured and went to the museum of Archeology! spent 5 hours there i wanted to cry but Robin was in heaven... so fool of things!! a really good museum you get your moneys worth for sure!!

This is a big cat that was outside the museum and i liked it so i got a photo with it LOLO COOLCOOL!!! MEAW
HAHA i had to they had suck peachy bum!! nice! i think that was the highlight of the day.. no not really! it was a really great museum!
That's all the good photos i have of things for the moment but i will be sure to add more and better ones!

So Cappadocia

Yes so from Safronbulo we moved to a town called Gorome, it took nearly all day to get there and when we arrived it was dark and we were not sure if there was going to be places to stay. The sights of Gorome by night were very strange because the area is a mixture of normal looking Turkish houses and then the strange mountain houses, like pixi houses or chimneys. so it turns out that we found a really nice hotel to stay in that was super cheap!!

the next day Robin and i decided to walk. we go up prity early and asked the owner of the hotel where was a good walk. This man was a great help and showed us many valleys that we could see.

We started our walk to a valley called Pigeon Valley it was amazing!!! the forms of these old mountain houses are so strange and we were free to walk in them and touch them, it was really great!
So we walked through this valley for most of our first day. I got scared of slippery Cliff faces that we were trying to clime but it was worth it in the end because then we discovered the best song in the world! It is some kind of turkistic cleche music im sure you can find if you google traditional Turkish music. Really is something you have to do in life its so so.... whats the word, wistful, repetitive. Im not sure but wow it blew my mind for sure!
The next day Robin and i decided to take a tour, we chose the green tour that meant there was very little shopping involved which was great! we saw many sights an under grown city, for when Christians in that time (whenever that time was) were under attack. It was amazing there were 12 levels and we only went down to the 8Th and it seemed to go on forever! DOWN AND DOWN AND DOWN! and Robin was always too tall!
our next stop was a valley walk that took an hour it was really great, we stopped once to view a church that had been carved in to the valley. at the end of the walk we had our lunch and i was ready for that because i had no breakfast.
After lunch we drove to this massive fortress on the side of this big mountain it was really impressive, there were 3 churches and a school area in it. From a distance it looked like the scene in Star Wars where Jabba the hut lives... also many a joke was made because i was also wearing my starwars Tshirt that day. hahaha StarWars..
We stopped once for some icream before our last stop which was an Onyx workshop where we got a small tour of the work areas then they showed us jewelry. But everyone on the tour were travelers and couldn't afford to buy expensive things. Back in Gorome it was nearly 6:30 it was a really fool day of sights. We found food and then went to bed to get ready for another day!
the next few days we just wondered in the beauty of the area before we went back to the big city by a night bus.
