Technology Hates Me

Technology officially hates me...

Yesterday afternoon I was relaxing in my bedroom, watching old episodes from my current favorite TV series "Covert Affairs" that I had on my external hard drive, when suddenly, the hard drive was ejected and stopped working...

Istanbul...Simply Amazing!

I'm baaaaccckkk!
I'm back from a wonderful vacation I have spent in Istanbul. It was my first time visiting this city, but definitely not my last. I am sure I will be going back again and again.

Christmas Day, we landed in Istanbul, and after getting the luggage and heading to the hotel, it was time to rest for a while, before going out and exploring the city.
We were staying in Sultanahmet, which is the old part of Istanbul where the most important historical monuments are. Our hotel, a beautiful and charming luxury boutique hotel, was within a few minutes walking distance from the historical sights and the tram station.

After resting for a few hours, we decided to take a walk around the area. We were stopped by waiters and restaurant managers on a busy touristic street, each inviting us to take a look at their menu. This happened quite a few times on the same street and I got a little frustrated. I've literally just arrived a few hours ago, and all I wanted was to walk a…
