23 Images of the Aya Sofia in Istanbul

The Aya Sofia is one of Istanbul's most prominent attractions. I had no idea, however, that it would be so big... or so awe-inspiring. Rather than try to fill this page with a huge list of cliches and overused expressions, I figured I'd let the images do the talking for me. Enjoy!

Day 177: Pancakes, Because People are Feeling Homesick

There’s been nothing quite like the good ol’ American holiday of July 4th to bring out the homesickness in just about every American abroad I know. Talking about barbecues and fireworks has taken over my blog feed lately, but I’ll tell you what, the homesickness factor became apparent in my local circle of friends a little sooner than that. And… Read more

Day 116: Cobblestone Streets, Bad for Feet

Day 116: Big Toe Says, "Ouch!"
If you asked me now what the most important part of my body is when it comes to being in good physical condition, I would have to say feet since I’ve had so many issues lately. I used to think that having a good knee was all I wanted, and the back seems to… Read more

Day 92: Not Happy With What I Saw
There are some things about Australia that I can’t quite handle on a regular basis. One such thing is also the reason I will never, ever, ever, EVER leave the windows down in a car in this country when I’m not driving. We got a little reminder of that reason last night… Read more

Day 90: Ways to Better Enjoy Rottnest Island

Day 90: Bike Riding Rottnest Island
Going to Perth and not going to Rottnest Island, to me, is like going to Paris and not visiting the Eiffel Tower. It’s one of those places that makes up Australia and speaks of this country’s natural splendor. After arriving for an afternoon adventure on day 90, I immediately saw resemblances to both Fraser… Read more

Day 35: Preparing for Malaysia by Eating Loads of Malaysian Food

Day 35: Alice's Malaysian Extravaganza
I’ve been eating heaps of Malaysian food now that I have Patrick in my life, and it isn’t always a bad thing — just when all the food is prepared with seafood. Tonight we went to dinner with his family over to Alice’s, a restaurant way up in the North Shore of Sydney with some… Read more

Day 34: Chillin' Like a Villain

Day 34: Glued to the TV & Waiting

Day 34: Chillin' Like a Villain
Falling asleep on a bean bag chair is not the most comfortable thing in the world, which is why I woke up at 2:00am and made my way to the bedroom (although it was too hot and sticky to sleep well there either). I think I had nodded off around 1:30am, trying to watch… Read more

Day 23: The Things You Can See at Bondi

Day 23: Bondi to Bronte Walk
Oh, glorious day. The sun was super bright today in Sydney, so Pat & I took it upon ourselves to do the Bondi to Bronte seaside walk. Excellent choice! We were met with clear skies, beautiful waters and a cool breeze during the 2.5 km (or is it 3.5 km?) walk each way.… Read more
