Anyone who’s been following the @decorartuk account on Twitter must have noticed that I have disappeared a bit abruptly (this wasn’t planned, I had only 1 day to pack my suitcase!), but you might also have seen that I’m spending my one week holiday in Turkey (I’ve posted a few photos on Instagram).
I must admit Turkey doesn’t sound as good as the Maldives, Dubai or, if we talk about Europe, Italy or the French Riviera, but, as I’ve never been to this country before, this is something that counts as experience, right?
I’m a very nervous flyer, so I can already put a very big cross next to one of the ten life tips I’ve posted together with the May desktop image – “scare yourself a little bit every day, it will expand your inner map”. My inner map must be the size of a football pitch at the moment and I can still feel it expanding, as I know that I’ll have to get back home the same way I got here…
Anyway, here are some first impressions:
May is the time to go – it’s not too hot (+22/+28C) and there aren’t that many holidaymakers.
If you don’t like lamb, you’d better like chicken.
The call for prayer (five times a day) adds some charm to the overall experience.
Cat lovers must carry food at all times!
The locals can be very “stubborn” offering their services.
If you haven’t mastered the art of haggling, better don’t buy anything – any possibility to rip you off will be gladly taken (while smiling widely).

I can’t tell you anything else at the moment, but I’ll try to post some photos later in the week.
P.S. If you’ve been to Turkey (or if you live there) and you think there’s something I should do/try, please le me know what it is. Thank you!
