    Your responses are always so friendly :hugs:

    So will you be going to Turkey in August?
    Thanks HWB.:hugs:

    And well I would love to be able to say a definite yes to your question. However, to be honest I really don't know yet. I know, here it is July already. And if there ever was a time I could use a getaway, surely it is now. I need a break from my mundane life. I've been at my job now for over a year and this is the first time I have ever been able to think about traveling, and I am finally in a financial position to as well.

    I have been saving up and could buy a ticket anytime now. But he and I still don't know if things will be okay there with his life by that time. Long story short, its issues and problems in the family. If I don't get to go, I will be disappointed for sure, but I will stay with him and hope that I can start going next year.


    to Respect-Good to hear that you had a great time in Turkey. Have you any stories to tell of your adventure in Turkey?

    It sounds like you're in a difficult position so I wish you the best of luck. When things get long distance it can be quite painful I know, but all good things come to people that wait right? Chin up

    I didn't know you're Turkish and I'm pretty sure that I've quote you before on some of the football threads.

    Hi everyone, I recently came back from Turkey and just out of curiosity I wanted to ask how come I seen so many Turkish people drinking alcohol. I know Turkey is very secular and drinking is a personal choice, but for a country where 98% of the population is Muslim I was quite surprised to see so many Turks drinking.

    I'm not a strict Muslim either, but is this common across the country?

    Thanks, just wanted to ask as I've not seen this in other Muslim countries and I was just curious.

    When I visited Turkey, I stayed in a conservative city and I did not see many people drinking. On the contrary, I saw people praying outside the mosque because it was so packed inside; prayer rooms inside coach stations; many women wearing the scarf etc

    Maybe you went to a big touristic city?
