I think of traveling as baby steps. We put ourself into a world which we did not know before. We trust and we put one step front to discover a new place.
I am taking one step front today. I will be taking a bus to Istanbul first. TV can influence our perspectives .Last o few months ,here , in Turkey ,we are hearing bad news constantly .
Bombings affected people’s mood . Even I -who don’t watch news – am affected .But I don’t wanna live with fear. I wanna move around and live.
Therefore ,I am exited to go Italy. I bought my Venice guide book and I printed all the attractions which I wanna see.
It has been such a long time since I tried to write anything here. I decided to start again after all these times. I hope ,this is gonna be a good start and I will keep my promise to myself. The reason I did not write is -I think after traveling for a long time -I felt like there is nothing to mention here in my hometown.Coming back to hometown did not go well with me.It has been really hard and I did not want to write negativity much.
After all this time I decided to go somewhere again. This move gave me inspiration to write again . It is scary feeling actually to open up again and it is scary to travel again .But these are only thoughts and reality .And I will feel like other myself again soon. I say other myself because now this myself does not feel like my other myself -:) .
As I mentioned that I will be going to trip for six days .It will be Venice. I have been there for a one day once and I wanted to come back for spending good time in Venice. All I want is loose myself in Venice .I wanna be lost in alley and drink good coffee and eat good food.
And I wanna take pictures as much as I can. This time I will write about my trip and hopefully I will continue to write my blog as much as I can.
Czech-French writer Milan Kundera examines our ambivalent amble through life with unparalleled grace and poetic precision in his 1984 novel The Unbearable Lightness of Being — one of the most beloved and enduringly rewarding books of the past century. Reading his words makes me feel better .We can never know what to want, because, living only one life, we can neither compare it with our previous lives nor perfect it in our lives to come.
There is no means of testing which decision is better, because there is no basis for comparison. We live everything as it comes, without warning, like an actor going on cold. And what can life be worth if the first rehearsal for life is life itself? That is why life is always like a sketch. No, “sketch” is not quite the word, because a sketch is an outline of something, the groundwork for a picture, whereas the sketch that is our life is a sketch for nothing, an outline with no picture.

In the morning
When I began to wake,
It happened again—
That you, Beloved,
Had stood over me all night
That as soon as I began to stir
You put Your lips on my forehead
And lit a Holy Lamp
Inside my heart.
You do not have to be good.
You do not have to walk on your knees
For a hundred miles through the desert, repenting.
You only have to let the soft animal of your body
love what it loves.
Tell me about despair, yours, and I will tell you mine.
Meanwhile the world goes on.
Meanwhile the sun and the clear pebbles of the rain
are moving across the landscapes,
over the prairies and the deep trees,
the mountains and the rivers.
Meanwhile the wild geese, high in the clean blue air,
are heading home again.
Whoever you are, no matter how lonely,
the world offers itself to your imagination,
calls to you like the wild geese, harsh and exciting —
over and over announcing your place
in the family of things.
