Ben geldim, gidiyorum.

I’ve come and I’m gone.


Ten months, two semesters, countless adventures, and one cancelled transatlantic flight later, I’m finally heading home. The idea of going home is bittersweet. I’m ready — I cried last night when I found out my flight home was cancelled, because I just wanted to board the plane today and get there. But at the same time, I love Türkiye, it’s a place where I could stay — I’ll probably cry when I board the plane tomorrow.


I’m at a loss for words to describe how I feel, what this year has meant to me, and everything that I’ve learned about this place, the world, and myself. So, tonight I’m just going to stream Power Türk and dance around my hotel room instead.

I leave you with the sights and sounds of the city that has stolen my heart…

Herşey için teşekkür ederim, Türkiye.
