I am going to tell you the story of this olives. Just an olive? No. 7 cities, 40 hours, 8 meals and unlimited tea.
You know, most of the things start with a tiny idea like “wouldn’t it be great?” so our Izmir trip. Someone said, “Oh it would be great to make a trip to Izmir” and the other replied “Fantastic idea” Another one said “Maybe if we can arrange a car” and the other said “Oh, I can arrange it” and we hit the road with 15 + 1800 people.
Turkish pies has been eaten, deserts swallowed while saying “Actually I am on a diet” and some toast has been sent down. We finally arrived Izmir around afternoon. Can Fotokopi has welcomed us with a great hospitality and with great affection. We cannot thank enough! Those great tables has been full. We took photos, we tried pens and shake hands. People swarmed with each other like they have known each other for years.
Well, I am quite surprised that we are around 1300 in the blog and nearly 2000 in the Facebook group. A little blog, a small group snowballed into something this big. And today those friendships are reaching to other citiess. I am glad that you are here! I am glad that you are a part of this family of Write to Me Often. Thank you a hundred times!
