This is my big list of all of my favourite things on this trip, enjoy!
Turkey is currently my favourite country, Istanbul if you want to be specific. I like the people, and definitely the food. One of the best parts is that there are a lot of kittens!
I think Spanish might be my favourite, to me it’s not as cryptic as others, such as Greek. I would definitely try to learn Spanish as it is spoken all around the world.
I have to say I’ve got a couple. I love all pastries, there’s something about them that after six months, still can’t put a finger on. I also love Turkish donner kebabs, it is where they put meat on a large metal rod that rotates around a heater. Then, they shave it off the rod then pack it in a pita among fries, yogurt, lettuce and tomatoes. Yum!
Favourite Mode of Transportation
I think my favourite is boats, I like them because they aren’t like buses or cars, because they make me sick, especially on bad roads. You also don’t need to scamper around a huge building with thousands of other people, to get on your plane… One of the best things though is that you can live on a boat, and that’s pretty amazing. The ocean is your backyard!
My favourite beaches are in Sri Lanka. I love surfing (or at least trying to). But when I am not surfing, the snorkelling is fantastic! Once, I touched a sea turtle! When I’m not doing either, my brothers and I are trying not to get knocked over in the waves.
My favourite park is definitely the one on the Zorlu Mall in Istanbul! You might wonder why my favourite is not Gullivers Park in Valencia. I don’t really know why. I do, however, know why I love the Zorlu park so much. That is because it has:
- A slide that is super wide, that my brothers and I can all go on all together, horizontally!
- It has a ton of fun stuff integrated into the area, like trampolines, climbing ropes and a lot more stuff that I do not know the name of.
- Best of all there is a super long slide that goes through a concrete wall!
If you go to Istanbul you have to go there.
Favourite Museum/Science Center
I honestly have loved every single Science Center we have gone to. Some of the museums although they were educational, weren’t very enjoyable. I think at the all-time favourite award goes to the Vida Science Center in Brno, Czech Republic. Even though I visited it about four and a half months ago, and have been to many more science centers, it is still my favourite. Inside the building, one of my favourite things is a tube that you fill with hydrogen by electrolysis, and once the pressure reaches a certain point a spark is lit and the hydrogen explodes, making a huge BANG!
Favourite Historical Site
My favourite historical site would definitely be the Tombs of Kings. I like it because there are a ton of caves that you can explore that real ancient kings were stored in! Some of the caves are huge so we could walk around and pretend that we were dead kings, because who wouldn’t want to be a dead king!
I have two favourite desserts. The first one is Sibel’s homemade chocolate pudding in Kuzguncuk, Istanbul. It was absolutely amazing. I think I could even eat it for breakfast (if only I were allowed). My next favourite is ice cream/gelato, as we have been traveling I have tasted some amazing flavors and I’m challenging myself to try as many flavors as possible!
That’s my big list, I hope you liked it. Bye!
