Türkiye | Sky Watch

Türkiye | Sky Watch

Traveling to Türkiye, was one of my long cherished dreams, especially to Istanbul. The Türkiye Connection I have always felt a deep connection with this land without having ever visited it. And when we did in October 2022, it was like homecoming. The people were warm, kind-hearted; the winding alleys felt oh! So familiar, as did the bazaars and the baklavas.

Turning 6 on 6 | It’s a Sixer | Blogiversary

It’s a Sixer   Natasha Musing turned 6 today, on the 6th Day of December, 2022.  (I’m not counting the time I set up my blogspot account- 17 years ago; as I’d like to believe that WP gave wings to my personal writing in a different form.)
