Hi! I'm Lisa. I'm a professionally trained opera singer, translator & urban wanderer since 1988. Having lived in Rome, Paris, Belgrade, New York & now Istanbul I consider myself a full-blown expat & therefore an expert in homesickness. Yes, that's right. As much as I love travelling and exploring the world, I've always found it difficult to maintain roots & feel myself at home. I started this blog & my Youtube channel in part as my work-in-progress to change that. See you around!
This blog features my experiences when i was still in Saudi Arabia, and the beautiful places here in the Philippines that we have been to. Likewise, this blog shares advice on working in the corporate world.
This photographic work of Istanbul is a work in progress since September 2013. Hüzün, melancholy or nostalgia in Turkish, is a feeling to be found in many cities, but nowhere to the extent you can find in the streets of Istanbul. Byzantium, Constantinople, Istanbul, the former capital of two worlds empires (Roman and Ottoman) during fifteen centuries. Straddling Europe and Asia, ruling over vast territories in the Balkans, the Middle East, and North Africa, it was always destined, by geography and history, to be an important global hub. However, other seems to be the fate of this people, the Turks, that starting moving from Central Asia, slowly but steadily moving west, to arrive at the doors of Europe, but are not yet part of it? Many old families continue to keep traditional customs while, over the last century, the city has experienced rapid westernization and modernization, a population explosion that make it the biggest city in Europe with over 15 million inhabitants and spectacular economic development. This has created a sharp contrast between modern and traditional ways of life. Surrounded by remnants of imperial glory, now living in a provincial town since Ankara became the capital of the new Republic, has caused a feeling of being neither here nor there, always in transition, with still very present past and a future yet to materialize, exacerbating this melancholy, this "Huzun"

Hello my name is Aida, I am orginally from Croatia but I have lived and studied at university in California. My blog consists of mainy photos from Turkey, Croatia and Georgia. Currently I am on an adventure in Turkey that has lasted for 2 years. Turkey? It started off as an internship and volunteer program for 2 months but then it turned into being all about love. 2 months turned into 2 years with my Turkish fiance accompanying me on some of my travels. Do I plan to settle down here? Once an expat always an expat. Soon I'll get the urge to move somewhere else. In the meantime I have to finish visiting every city in Turkey.
