Photo an Hour // Road Trip 18.07.2015

Monday, July 27, 2015

07:00 / After my mothers cousing called her and invited us for breakfast at their summer house we decided it would be a good idea since it was a holiday. We were on the road pretty early because it would take us 2,5 hours.
08:00 / Got stuck in traffic which delayed our trip about 40 minutes.
09:00 / Leaving the city and starting to see a bit of land instead of building upon buildings.
10:00 / More wonderful scenery.
12:00 / We had breakfast (which I forgot to photography at around 11) and I decided to take a photo from the balcony.
13:00 / We drank turkish coffee and ate some chocolate.
14:00 / I went by the beach and sat down under a tree and just chilled.
15:00 / The weather got unbearably hot so I went back into the house to lie down a bit.
16:30 / I went by the beach again because no one else came up to the house and I got a bit bored. I drank some juice which kept me fresh.
18:00 / After I went to the beach everyone decided to head back so when we did come back I decided to hang out on my phone and edit some photos.
19:00 / We ate some dinner before we went on the road to go back home.
20:30 / Stopped by a pond and the sun was setting so we took a few photos before it was all gone. Really loved the atmosphere here, nothing but nature.
21:00 / After only going on the open road for another 30 minutes we hit major traffic. It took us 7 hours to get back home which is insane considering that the road usually only takes 2,5 hours as I have said before. They closed up roads on 3 locations which was the cause of this mess.
After coming home from that traffic I just took a shower and slept. It was a really fun day but I seriously thought I was losing my mind in that ridiculous traffic. I have lived in Istanbul a long time and seen all kinds of traffic but never one like this. I would probably never go down that road again. Anyways it was great taking you along with me though :) 

Have you ever been stuck in this much traffic? Let me know!

  1. Sadlly, the traffic in Manila is more insane and this happens on normal working days. :( Nice photos. I really love "Photo an hour" segment :)

  2. Oh my goodness, seven hours in traffic is for sure a nightmare! I would have lost my mind too. Despite hitting bad traffic it looks like you had a nice time. I would love to try some Turkish coffee, it looks wonderful !

  3. wonderful photos
