These pics are amazing!! :) I’m SO excited to be going to Greece & Turkey in just over a week as a post-masters-degree celebration! Did you have any favorites? Must-sees?


Heather (Heather's Dish) May 10, 2010 at 12:31 pm

me = in love with these pictures :) the kitty one right above is probably my favorite though, TOO cute!


Diana May 10, 2010 at 12:33 pm

Love the photos as always! :) Ahhhhhhh I wanna travel so much!


meghan May 10, 2010 at 12:36 pm

I love how all your vacation pics always have pictures of cats! Haha, I am so the same way!
p.s. Your posts still aren’t showing up on Blog Lovin’. Just an FYI. I don’t know if that means it’s not showing up on other blog readers or what. I love the new layout though!

the architecture blows my mind. im left speechless!


Courtney @ Sweet Tooth, Sweet Life May 10, 2010 at 1:11 pm

The architecture on some of those buildings is just phenomenal. Why can’t traveling be cheaper?!?? ;)

Angela (Oh She Glows) May 10, 2010 at 1:28 pm

hmm why are my comments not threading anymore :(


Kate May 10, 2010 at 1:44 pm

Awesome, awesome pics!!! :) Absolutely love these! The kitty is adorable! I love catching cats in other countries doing their thang… I always wondered if they think with an accent. ;)

This is one of the places I wanted to go on my honeymoon. Wasn’t able to afford it so hopefully I will make it sometime in the future.


Anne @ Food Loving Polar Bear May 10, 2010 at 2:23 pm

I love these pictures. I’ve been to Turkey twice but never to Istanbul!


Mo May 10, 2010 at 3:24 pm

That picture of Eric wth the Coke-Cola truck is funny. And now he is so over that! Yeah for him!


Gosia May 10, 2010 at 3:24 pm

It’s so funny that you have a picture of graffiti made by some Polish guy:) Greetings from Poland!

I have plans to visit the families of a friend this summer in Turkey. The idea is that I’ll travel around and his family who live all over the country will take me in, teach me how to cook, and send me along my way. What can I not miss in your opinion?


Melinda May 10, 2010 at 3:56 pm

Great pics. I hope to get there some day, but hopefully not stationed there. I do know many people who were stationed in Turkey and I think most of them enjoyed it. I am hoping we get Spain or Italy next.


Kamaile May 10, 2010 at 3:59 pm

Those are lovely pictures! :-( to the dogs and cats sleeping on the street.


Nicole @ Making Good Choices May 10, 2010 at 4:00 pm

Beautiful pictures Angela. I can’t wait until I have the opportunity to get over to Europe. Thank you for sharing!


Michelle May 10, 2010 at 4:25 pm

Istanbul is my dream trip. I took a university course on Byzantine history, and fell in love with it. Istanbul is so rich in history – Hagia Sophia, Bosporus Straight, Hippodrome of Constantinople, and Hagia Irene. One day I’ll get there, I know I will.


Laura May 10, 2010 at 4:39 pm

I’m loving your travel series. If you could go back to spend more time in one city you visited during your honeymoon, which would it be?


Wei-Wei May 10, 2010 at 5:10 pm

Loving the beautiful photos! :D The “tourism police” cracked me up. And the graffiti is so cool, albeit the grammar a little poor (sorry, I’m a stickler for details!)

I love that Coca-Cola truck, by the way. So vintage! ;)



Leah May 10, 2010 at 6:21 pm

These pictures are so beautiful. Im LOVING that cat in the last one. He just looks so happy.


Taylor S. May 10, 2010 at 7:42 pm

I haven’t seen your new page because I’ve been so busy with college, but it looks great! Thank you for being such an inspiration.

I think you have a love for cats, me too.


mary May 10, 2010 at 10:18 pm

I love your 1000 words posts. Seriously!


Triathlonbabe May 10, 2010 at 11:03 pm

I love the colorful bean bags and the kitty too.


Rachel May 10, 2010 at 11:17 pm

These pictures are AMAZING! I recently discovered your blog, and think it is fantastic. Quick question, how tall are you? Just checking, because your husband looks so tall in comparison haha!


Courtney (Pancakes & Postcards) May 11, 2010 at 2:40 am

Ahh, Istanbul!! So beautiful. My dad is 100% Turkish (grew up there) and I FINALLY got to visit in 2007. I really think that this is one of the most amazing cities in the entire world. The blending of East and West, modernism and deeply rooted history… I want to go back. Or live there… reconnect with my heritage :)
