Week#23: Croissant & Coffee & More

Karaköy is one of the liveliest, however a bit hidden neighbourhoods. A few years ago, this old port neighbourhood was rather empty, but as days pass by, more and more new bars, restaurants and coffee shops are opening there. It is also one of my favourite breakfast destinations in town. In my #52breakfasts project, IContinue reading “Week#23: Croissant & Coffee & More”

Burak ali zakaj so se Slovenke začele učiti turško

V Turčiji so telenovele zelo pribljubljene. Turki pa raje kot tuje, spremljajo domače telenovele. Pred leti pa so jih tudi uspešno začeli ‘izvažati’ v tujino. V Latinski Ameriki na primer, to je v domovini telenovel, so postale tako priljubljene, da so nekateri otroci celo dobili turška imena oziroma imena po junakih telenovel. (Predvidevam, da imamoContinue reading “Burak ali zakaj so se Slovenke začele učiti turško”

Week #22: The House Which Never Disapoints

Beşiktaş is one of those places known among the breakfast lovers. You can enjoy your breakfast all day long, especially during the weekends. But more than the so-called Kahvaltıcılar sokağı (Breakfast street), I prefer the House Cafe on the corner of the Akaretler street. Although I always have mixed feelings when it comes to aContinue reading “Week #22: The House Which Never Disapoints”

Week #21: Healthy Choice

In the past 20 weeks, I have tried many different breakfast locations around (and beyond) Istanbul. Even tough breakfasts seem the same, they differ a lot. One of the most important things is the quality of ingredients used for breakfast. Organic olives, homemade jam and butter, homemade bread, special cheese and kaymak… all these ‘details’Continue reading “Week #21: Healthy Choice”

Living Abroad: Something No One Told You

There is no secret that people have been leaving their hometowns and countries since the beginning of time. In the last decades, travelling and therefore leaving one’s country has become much easier and more affordable. That is why more and more people move abroad for different reasons. Most people that move abroad because they wantContinue reading “Living Abroad: Something No One Told You”

Week #20: Home, Sweet Home

Let’s face it, Turkish breakfast tradition is great, but there is no way you could afford to follow it on a daily basis. It takes time and money to prepare it and then eat it. So here is what I actually have for breakfast on a regular working day, that means on a day whenContinue reading “Week #20: Home, Sweet Home”

Week #19: Meloon

Istanbul keeps on surprising me. Every neighbourhood has its own vibes, its own face… Every time you think you’ve figured Istanbul out, it just smiles and you and shows you yet another face. This happens to me every time I go to the Asian side of Istanbul, which, as I have always lived in the EuropeanContinue reading “Week #19: Meloon”

Week 17: Love from Beirut

In this week of my #52breakfasts challenge, I will take you on a journey to Beirut, Lebanon. Instead of a Turkish breakfast culture, let’s indulge into a Lebanese breakfast culture. This has been my first visit to Beirut and I’ve spent there just a few days, so I didn’t really have much time to discoverContinue reading “Week 17: Love from Beirut”
