Last night we went out for a quick walk just as the light was fading. We headed to a little parcel of vacant land that we spied about a month ago. It's in a quiet little area close to where we live at the moment.
The light at this time is so beautiful.
We talked to a couple of locals and found out that the land belongs to the government but the land adjoining with four rundown (and badly built in the first place) houses on it is for sale...a cool 3.3 million Turkish Lira (very roughly 3 Million Australian dollars or 2 million US dollars).
Sure the places look pretty ramshackle (and apparently there is a condition on the land that you are only allowed to 'restore' them)
But the views! At the moment we're just going to keep on dreaming!
I live in Istanbul with my little baby boy and my husband. I like food, chocolate, books, making stuff, taking photos, more chocolate, old wooden furniture and sitting on my balcony looking at the Bosphorus. I wish I had more time, a coffee machine, an extra hand and a private jet to fly my family and friends over to visit me!
If you have any questions feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a comment under one of my posts. Thanks for visiting!
I'm looking forward to getting cosy under a big warm blanket, sipping a hot chocolate (or something a little stronger!) and reading these:
