My Trip to Turkey

Two weeks ago it was time to hop on another plane, relax on the beach and eat unlimited scoops of ice cream: I went to Turkey. You might remember me going to Bodrum last year, but this time we decided to go for another city and our eyes landed on this hotel in Kemer, so we decided to book it.

One of the main reasons for going to Turkey is the weather and we were so lucky that the entire week that we were there was beautiful. Blue sky, sunshine and 28 ˚C every day, it was amazing! Of course hot summer weather also means getting a tan and I am happy to announce that I am no longer a vampire. The pale skin -without the Twilight sparkles unfortunately- has turned into a light tan, and to me that is a big deal. I have been excepting all the ah's and oh's gracefully as I show everyone my tan line and tell them about my chilling days on the beach. 
When I was lying on the beach I also had time to read. I always buy books but I never really read them. For me, the beach is the perfect moment for those things, so that's exactly what I did. I worked my way through '13 Reasons Why' and 'Lion' in three days. I loved both of them so much. Especially 'Lion'. 

Some holidays I want to be adventurous and do lots of things, explore the country that I'm in and see it all. This was not one of those holidays. We mainly came there to chill the eff out, read books, swim and sleep a lot. I know some people hate this kind of holiday, but I find it very refreshing from my busy life back home. 
We did visit two cities when we were there: Kiris and Kemer. Our hotel was in Kiris and right outside were shops where you could buy some bits and bobs. Mainly touristy things and knock off Chanel bags, but it was nice to stroll around for a bit. I am actually guilty of buying a few tourist things myself. I bought a magnet in the shape of a turtle -I collect these from every country, so please don't judge that I'm being that person- and I bought six coasters with the most gorgeous flower design. They all have different colours but they match in their own unique way. They will look lovely on the coffee table in my future apartment and they were only €1 each. Such a bargain.
In Kemer we also walked around for a bit, did some shopping -I didn't buy anything- and sat down for some cake and a drink. I had a cheesecake and it was so good. Also the fact that in total we paid around €5.80 for this in total is ridiculous. Here those things are way more expensive. 

When we arrived back in Amsterdam I was completely relaxed from all the tanning and the sauna visits, but that mood faded quickly when I had to get back to work and worry about uni things. Can't wait to finish uni, get my degree and make myself ready for the next big adventure! Bali anyone?

Do you have any trips planned for the summer?
