Exploring Western Blacksea, Turkey

Back in July we worked on a project with TC Bakka in the Western Black Sea area of Turkey. Over the course of a week we were going to visit Safranbolu, Amasra, Zonguldak, Ereğli and a couple of places along the way!

We landed at Ataturk Airport in Istanbul and met up with our tour guides, Kafka Tur, and the minibus which would become our second home over the next week. We met the rest of the team in Beşiktaş and after a delicious lunch of kebabs and katmer, we started the 5 hour drive up to the Black Sea region of Turkey and the first stop on our itinerary – Safranbolu in the Karabük Province.

A walk round Brighton, England

Brighton is a seaside resort on the south coast of England. It’s just down the road from where a lot of my family live so whenever i’m back I always try to spend a day there wandering round and shopping. (okay, mostly shopping)

The seaside town is well known for it’s pebble beach, it’s pier, it’s Pavilion, the British Airways i360 (which was our first stop) and my favourite area – The Lanes which is just the cutest shopping area of narrow, winding streets and a must visit when in Brighton!

Burj Al Arab – The Most Luxurious Hotel in The World

Back in December I was lucky enough to goto Dubai and while I was there we got to visit the amazing Burj Al Arab. Built on a man-made island, construction of the Burj Al Arab began in 1993 and was completed in 1999. The Burj Al Arab is one of the most iconic buildings in Dubai and its unique sail-like shape is easy to spot from a far. If you have ever been to Dubai then it will come as no surprise that you will find “the world’s only 7-star hotel” there…..
