ENGLISH BELOW Hiking yaparken g├Âz├╝m├╝zden ka├ž─▒yor olabilir ama Western Cape b├Âlgesinde tam be┼č tane zehirli y─▒lan t├╝r├╝ varm─▒┼č. Bunlardan en bilineni Cape Cobra t├╝r├╝. Is─▒rd─▒─č─▒ andan itibaren 24 saat i├žinde tedavi edilmezse ├Âld├╝r├╝c├╝ olabiliyormu┼č. Dolay─▒s─▒yla siz siz olun mutlaka uzun pantolonlar giyin ve y├╝r├╝rken bast─▒─č─▒n─▒z yere bak─▒n.
ENGLISH It may go unnoticed when we are hiking but there are 5 poisonous snake species in Western Cape. The most common one is named Cape Cobra. Its bite can kill you if not treated within the day of the attack. So, always wear long trousers and watch your steps when hiking!

ENGLISH BELOW 2017'nin son g├╝n├╝ne Jeffrey's Bay'de ba┼člam─▒┼čt─▒m. Buras─▒ Garden Route ├╝zerindeki en pop├╝ler plajlardan biri. Dalgalar─▒n y├╝ksekli─či surf i├žin olduk├ža uygun. Surf tahtas─▒ ve k─▒yafetlerine ki┼či ba┼č─▒ 250 rand vererek 2 saat kullanabilirsiniz. G├╝n├╝n detaylar─▒n─▒ ve yeni y─▒la girerken Port Elizabeth'de tan─▒k oldu─čum havai fisek g├Âsterisini storylerden izleyebilirsiniz.

ENGLISH I started off the last day of 2017 at Jeffrey's Bay. This is one of th3 most famous beaches of South Africa and Garden Route. The height of the waves makes it very suitable for surfing. You can rent the wet suit and surf board for 2 hours for 250 R. Check out the stories for the details of the day and the firework show in Port Elizabeth as we welcomed 2018.

ENGLISH BELOW Observatory b├Âlgesine her ge├žen g├╝n daha da a┼č─▒k oluyorum. A┼č─▒r─▒ sakin ve huzurlu sokaklar─▒n─▒n arkas─▒nda canl─▒ bir hayat var. Her k├Â┼čede bir kafe, galeri, k├╝t├╝phane ve bar var. ├ľ─črenciler, hipsterlar, m├╝zisyenler, artistler ve daha niceleri. ┼×ehir merkezinin turist ve araba trafi─či olmayan versiyonu.

ENGLISH I am falling in love with the neighborhood of Observatory day by day. Behind the peaceful and quiet streets lies a very vibrant life style. There are coffee shops, restaurants, galleries, pubs and libraries at every corner. Students, hipsters, artists and musicians reside here. It is the version of the city center without the traffic jam and the tourist crowd.

ENGLISH BELOW Garden Route gezimizin sekizinci g├╝n├╝n├╝ Tsitsikamma National Park'da ge├žirdik. Burada asl─▒nda g├╝nlerce s├╝ren y├╝r├╝y├╝┼č rotalar─▒ var ve insanlar cadirlar─▒n─▒ vs s─▒rtlay─▒p yol ├╝zerinde kamp yapa yapa y├╝r├╝yor.

ENGLISH On the 8th day of our Garden Route trip, we spent time at Tsitsikamma National Park. The park has such lengthy hiking trails that will take days to complete. We saw lots of people carrying all their equipments on their backs, ready to camp along the way. I, on the other hand, barely hiked two short trails with my flip flops since I forgot my hiking shoes in the tent. But it was worth every minute!

ENGLISH BELOW Ge├žen hafta yazd─▒─č─▒m yaz─▒dan sonra tan─▒d─▒─č─▒m tan─▒mad─▒─č─▒m bir s├╝r├╝ insandan destek mesaj─▒ ald─▒m, ┼ča┼čk─▒na d├Ând├╝m a├ž─▒k├žas─▒ ve baya mutlu oldum. Yaln─▒z olmad─▒─č─▒m─▒ biliyordum ama san─▒r─▒m insan panik halinde sa─čl─▒kl─▒ d├╝┼č├╝nemiyor. Bu krizi de simdilik atlatt─▒m ve dersler ├ž─▒kard─▒m hatta. Yeni ya┼č─▒ma girerken uygulayabilecek miyim g├Ârece─čiz.
25'ten 26'ya ge├ži┼č bana gen├žlikten yeti┼čkinli─če yap─▒lm─▒┼č ├žok keskin bir ge├ži┼č gibi geliyor, pek haz─▒r hissetmedim ┼čimdi ne yalan s├Âyliyim. Ama geriye bakt─▒─č─▒mda en ├žok de─či┼čti─čim ve en dolu dolu ya┼čad─▒─č─▒m ya┼č─▒n 25 oldu─čunu g├Âr├╝yorum.
Burada insanlar─▒n birbirine s├╝rpriz do─čum g├╝n├╝ d├╝zenleme al─▒┼čkanl─▒─č─▒ yok gibi bi┼čey.┬á Birinin do─čum g├╝n├╝yse o kendi pastas─▒n─▒ al─▒p ofisine falan g├Ât├╝r├╝yor. Benim gibi ├╝┼čenge├žlere k├Ât├╝ haber tabi. Neyse ki etraf─▒mda beni ayr─▒ ayr─▒ ┼č─▒martan insanlar var. Her birine ba┼čta ailem olmak ├╝zere ayr─▒ ayr─▒ minnettar─▒m.

ENGLISH I have been getting lots of motivational messages from a lot people ever since I posted my latest article on my blog. It made me shocked and happy! I did know that I wasn't alone in my struggles but one fails to think rationally in a state of emergency. Fortunately, I was able to overcome the issues and even learn lessons from it. We'll see if I can apply those lessons in my new age.
The transition from 25 to 26 to me was like a very sharp one from youth to adulthood. I have to admit that it is quite intimidating! But when I look back, I feel that the age of 25 was very productive, eventful and lived to its fullest the most.
Here, people don't really have the habit of throwing surprise bday parties for one another. Usually the bday person is expected to buy his/her own cakeand take it to the office. Luckily, I have enough people to spoil me with surprises and kindness. And I feel grateful to every single one of them, especially my family!

ENGLISH You might think I travel a lot judging from my Instagram posts. We usually assume that people living abroad live these perfect lives all the time. But that might be an illusion sometimes. I wrote about some struggles I had for the past few weeks in Cape Town. Link in bio.

ENGLISH I finally managed to find a decent accommodation for myself, I will be moving in on the weekend. The place is in Observatory, which is one of my favorites and just as vibrant as Bo Kaap. As a bonus, the place has got a housekeeper who keeps calling me "baby"

ENGLISH BELOW Bazen diyorum ki. Nereden geldim buraya. Zorluklarla m├╝cadele etmeyi hala beceremedigim dogrudur. Bu aralar da yine oyle bir d├Ânem. B─▒rak─▒p d├Ânesim geliyor, hic olmazsa adam gibi i┼čim g├╝c├╝m olur para kazan─▒r─▒m, neye ├žabal─▒yorsam. Sonra bu manzaraya bak─▒yorum... ama pek i┼če yaram─▒yor­čśů. ├ťzerime motivasyon atsa birileri.

ENGLISH Recently I found myself asking "why am I even here?" It is clear that I still suck at facing challanges in life. It's one of those days where I want to just quit like a boss and leave. Then I look at this view... but it doesn't help either ­čśů. I need some encouragement.

ENGLISH BELOW Franschhoek Flemenk├že'de French Corner demek. 17. Y├╝zy─▒lda Frans─▒z Protestanlar buraya yerle┼čip tar─▒m faaliyetlerine ba┼člam─▒┼č. Bug├╝n d├╝nyan─▒n en kaliteli ┼čarap ba─člar─▒na ve restoranlar─▒na ev sahipli─či yap─▒yor buras─▒. Kasaban─▒n hemen yan─▒ ba┼č─▒nda teneke evlerden olu┼čan bir township olmas─▒na ra─čmen ├╝lkede su├ž oran─▒n─▒n en az oldu─ču yerlerden. Turistlerin u─črak yeri olmas─▒ nedeniyle hizmet sekt├Âr├╝nde pek ├žok i┼č olana─č─▒ do─čmu┼č.

ENGLISH Franschhoek means "French Corner" in Dutch. The first settlers after the San people were the French Huguenuts who started agricultural businesses in the area. Today, the town is home to one of the highest quality of winefarms and restaurants. Despite the proximity of a township in the area, it is one of the low crime areas in the country. This is probably because of a lot of job opportunities rising from the high demand in tourism since the town is a popular destination for foreigners.

ENGLISH BELOW ─░stanbul'da kar ya─čd─▒─č─▒n─▒ duyunca bir garip hissettim. Kar neye benziyordu unuttum desem yeridir. Ama asl─▒nda G├╝ney Afrika'da ├Âzellikle i├ž k─▒s─▒mlarda kar ya─č─▒┼č─▒ g├Âr├╝len bir iki yer varm─▒┼č. Bunlardan Cape Town'a en yak─▒n olan─▒ Cederberg

ENGLISH I felt weird when I heard it was snowing in Istanbul. I almost forgot how a snowflake looked like. In fact, there are still a few places to see snow in South Africa, especially in the inner parts and high altitudes. The closest to Cape Town is Cederberg.

ENGLISH BELOW Bu aralar ev aray─▒┼č─▒ ve okula kay─▒t i┼člemleri derken hafif stresli bir d├Ânemden ge├žiyorum. Biraz geriye d├Ân├╝p kafa da─č─▒tma zaman─▒ o halde. Garden Route gezimizin 7. g├╝n├╝nde d├╝nyan─▒n en y├╝ksek k├Âpr├╝ bungee jumping noktas─▒ olan Bloukrans K├Âpr├╝s├╝'n├╝ ziyaret etmi┼č ve turlara kat─▒lm─▒┼čt─▒k. Buraya ger├žekten g├╝nde belki de y├╝zlerce turist atlay─▒┼č yapmak i├žin geliyor ama yine de Face Adrenaline isimli ┼čirkete ait turlar hem ├žok organize hem de bir hayli heyecan verici. K├Âpr├╝n├╝n ├╝zerinde y├╝r├╝meye ba┼člad─▒─č─▒n─▒z an h─▒zlanmaya ba┼člayan kalp at─▒┼člar─▒n─▒z atlama noktas─▒ndaki tekno m├╝zikle zirveye ula┼č─▒yor. G├╝n├╝n detaylar─▒n─▒ storylerden takip edebilirsiniz!

ENGLISH I have recently been going through an intense period of accomodation search and registration. Now is the time for a throwback for distraction! On our 7th day of the Garden Route trip we visited Bloukrans Bridge which is the highest bridge bungee jumping point in the world. Hundreds of tourists visit here everyday for the jump, yet the company Face Adrenaline manages to keep the tours organized and entertaining at the same time. The adrenalin rush starting as you walk towards the jump point reaches its peak with the techno music playing in the background. Check out the stories for more photos and videos

ENGLISH Another Garden Route moment, another amazing trekking day. On our sixth day, we paid a visit to the Robberg Nature Reserve known for the numerous amounts of cape fur seals. Here, you can hike for hours and then literally slide down the sand dunes into the blue Indian Ocean.

ENGLISH BELOW Kano yapmak benim i├žin ayn─▒ anda hem dinlendirici hem de yorucu bir etkinlik olmu┼čtur. Wilderness National Park giri┼činde iki ki┼čilik kanolar─▒ kiralad─▒─č─▒m─▒zda bu kadar g├╝zel bir g├╝n ge├žirece─čimi tahmin etmiyordum. Hatta nedense ┼ču an "Nehirlerin ├╝zerinden a─ča├žlar─▒n aras─▒ndan gideriz b├╝y├╝kanneye" ┼čark─▒s─▒ geldi akl─▒ma. Ye┼čil zehirlenmesi ya┼čad─▒m desem yalan olmaz, hatta suda y├╝zen y─▒lanlar bile ├žimen ye┼čiliydi.

ENGLISH Canoeing has always been both a meditating and a challenging activity for me. When we rented the canoes at the entrance of Wilderness National Park, I never thought I'd have spent such an amazing day. Paddling along the valleys covered in green gave me an overdose. Even the snakes floating on the surface were light-green colored.

ENGLISH Today's hiking route was called Kromsrivier, 1.5 hour drive away from Cape Town. It is an incredible feeling to dive in freezing water after hiking under the sun light, and then sitting on the rock and appreciating the nature. Now I am ready to go back to school. In fact, I missed my old routine.

Wilderness, Garden Route ├╝zerinde bulunan bir sahil kasabas─▒. Buraya ge├ž var─▒nca bir de iki g├╝n kamptan sonra rahat yatak bulunca bizimkiler kendini uykuya verdi. Ben de kendimi sahile att─▒m. Sahilin bir taraf─▒ baya kalabal─▒k, siyahiler deli gibi e─členiyor, di─čer tarafta da beyazlara ait olan denize s─▒f─▒r tahminimce milyon dolarl─▒k evler.
Wilderness is one of the coastal towns along the garden route. Because we got here late and because we found comfortable beds after two days of camping, my friends went to sleep immediately. So I decided to take a walk along the beach to watch the beautiful sunset

ENGLISH BELOW Oudtshoorn kasabas─▒ndaki Cango Cave devasa sark─▒t ve dikitleriyle ├╝nl├╝. Biz ki┼či ba┼č─▒ 160 rand vererek macera turuna kat─▒ld─▒k. Bizi ma─čaran─▒n derinliklerindeki dar t├╝nellere g├Ât├╝rd├╝ler. Baz─▒ yerler o kadar dard─▒ bir iki ki┼či neredeyse s─▒k─▒┼č─▒p kalacak gibi oldu. Ama o an ger├žekten kendinizi bir korku filminde gibi hissediyorsunuz. Bir de asl─▒nda bana Hugo'yu an─▒msatt─▒. Hani ma─čaran─▒n i├žinde trenle ilerledi─či bir oyun vard─▒. Hatta baz─▒ noktalarda stres atmak i├žin Hugo'ya k├╝fredecek gibi oldum.

ENGLISH Cango Cave in Oudthsoorn is famous for its giant rock formations. Me and my friends purchased the adventure tour for 160 rands each. They took us through the narrow tunnels inside the cave. Some parts were so narrow that a few people almost got stuck. It was certainly a place right out of horror movies. Some parts also reminded me of the game character Hugo riding a train inside a cave.
