This post is long overdue.
Eight years ago, I joined a tour to the Black Sea region of Turkey alone, and in the group were Ceren and Bariş. Since I was the only solo traveler, Ceren was very kind and invited me to join them at the dinning table, etc.
Their hospitality has passed down to the next generation. A week ago, her son, Toprak, has welcomed me to stay at their home for four days. We have spent a great time together doing many different things.
I am also glad to get to know Ceren much more. She is one of the most thoughtful, compassionate and helpful persons I know. I can’t thank her enough for helping me, from coming up with gifts ideas to translating at the barber shop. I won’t forget our conversations and the time we spent together.
I wish Ceren and her family the best in the years to come!
