Traveling for me is not just an excuse to have fun, but a form of inspiration. Everywhere I go, I see the beauty of the places I’m at. I seek out ways to experience the culture of the place I’m visiting by talking with the locals, venturing out of the city centers, and immersing myself wherever I am.
The past year I’ve travelled to Thailand, France, Luxembourg, The Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, Mexico, England, and my home country, Turkey. Each country and each city has its own uniqueness that has moved me. The warmth that Mexicans exude – with their kind hearts and welcoming energies made me feel at home. Spending the winter in the incredible city of Southampton, England made me feel so connected to nature; Amsterdam and The Netherlands, really captured my spirit.
The history and city structure of Amsterdam was truly breathtaking. Every corner of the city was incredibly picturesque. The canals were a maze of true beauty. The city was filled with locals and tourists and the hustle and bustle of the town was non-stop. With an influence of many cultures, the city is truly a melting pot and inspired me like no other.
Inspiration comes in various forms and it’s important to allow it to consume you. Without inspiration, we would not be able to create. For my inspiration, traveling comes with a lot of unexpected things as well. The stress of travel can be quite daunting, but when you’re prepared, you can truly take on the world.
