Eek! I’m so excited we fly out in less than a week, first to Turkey and then to Saudi Arabia.

I grew up in Saudi Arabia, so the trip will be more nostalgic and spritual (two grand mosques and heart of the Muslim World). Also beacuse I was there in April 2014 visiting my parents, o did I mention that? I guess now I did. A picture from last visit:

But Turkey…o my, my! It will out first trip ever. It’s going to be only a day long visit and there’s so much to explore. Not just the places, but the aroma and the taste of culture everywhere. Can’t wait…stay tuned for more by the end of February.
