Last Sunday I took off to Bodrum, Turkey, with my friend Antoine to enjoy some vacations there. I joined my best friend Tala whom her family has rented a beautiful apartment (pool included) next to the seaside and the center of Bodrum town. I stayed there with the family, while Antoine booked a hotel room. Although Turkey is pretty close to Lebanon on the map, it was my first time there! I am really thankful to Tala and her family because they have helped my trip to be at the top best.

Sunday: We arrived at Bodrum around 2 or 3pm. We had lunch at the Midtown mall and then went back to the apartment to swim in the pool. We stayed in at night and had a needed good night sleep.
Monday: we went to visit the towns near Bodrum by car and we stopped at a luxurious mall in Yali Kavak—18 km away from Bodrum and kind of a Zeytuna Bay only nicer. In addition, I made some purchases from the amazing Mudo store, including the 100% cellulose hat that I would be wearing for the rest of the vacay. Back to the apartment, we swam in the pool again but for the last time during my trip. At night, we went out to Bodrum’s center where we stayed up very late till about 2 am. I bought some wonderful and unique small needlepoint embroideries. We had dinner at a random place at the market. We walked in a bar fast and drank shots.
Thursday: (and last day) we went on a trip all day from early morning till late afternoon to tan on a boat and dive into the sea. We went on a buoy and banana boat ride, the last, which was a near-death experience, (I almost got hit by the engine of the boat that was waiting for us to leave). At night, we enjoyed our first and last Turkish dinner in peace and quiet and hung out in Bodrum center for the last time this summer.
Friday: we took off to Beirut early in the morning and arrived home in the middle of the afternoon. Antoine and I had great laughs in the plane so much we were drunk-tired!
