The Turkey Road Trip Begins, Basketball, & Getting out of Istanbul- Family World Travel Adventures- Carrentals.co.uk
And so another great adventure begins to unfold slowly, softly before our grateful eyes. We haven’t been in a car in a long, long time and our last road trip was back when we first became The Nomadic Family back in 201. We drove a 30-footer through virgin Rocky Mountain snow and loved it. Since then, we’ve hated this home and that one, became perpetually barefoot, and learned through world travel that we know nothing. We also danced to Oh, The Places You Will Go and almost died hiking the Annapurna Circuit in Nepal. We spent 6 months in India and loved Diwali and Holi Holiday, and then, we had this crazy idea to do a road trip through Eastern Europe and Carrentals.co.uk sort of appeared before our eyes as angels and we bowed.

We have another crazy idea. Maybe, maybe, maybe (if the Gods are particularly benevolent and the stars are aligned just right) we’ll get an RV for two months at the end of this summer and kill each other in closed, claustrophobic quarters. Yes, that will be lovely. Considering we’re now in a lovely two-story, two-bedroom apartment in Bergama, Turkey at TheSmallHotels.com’s Red Basilica and we’re about to murder them, I think the romantic dream of being the Brady Bunch in an RV just died. And hard. WE. WILL. MURDER. THEM. in a small mobile home. I don’t think there can be enough technology to keep us sane. No. So now that we have made that decision, I think we may look into a farmhouse somewhere in the remote hills of some Eastern European country, and in that farmhouse, I will seek rooms that are miles apart. Yes. At 11pm with three kids awake and nowhere close to sleeping, yes, I think dropping the RV dream and seeking the spacious farmhouse idea is brilliant!
Give it to me loves. Tell me how your kids are perfect and go to bed when you ask them too. Tell me how adorable it is that Orazi’s new best Turkish friend is three sizes bigger than him and still Orazi insists on wearing his basketball clothing. Tell me how big-city traffic when it’s new is still romantic and exciting. Tell me that you also just want to go to sleep in a house that is quiet. Tell me I’m somewhat, slightly normal. Just slightly.
