I'm taking an aupair job looking after an adorable 2-year-old and it's going to be amazing. I'm not going until August but when I get there I'll be sure to take plenty of photos. I'm also going to be living in a güzel daire (gorgeous apartment) right by the deniz (sea).
I have lived in Turkey before but only learned very basic Turkish (numbers 1 to 10, various greetings and basic nouns - very limited adjectives). This time I plan to get a much better grasp of the language - I may even stay there until I am fluent. Who knows how long that will take though.
