The Amazing Adventures of Kayla in Istanbul - Epilogue
On January 2 we got our bags into the car and prepared for the long way back to Bucharest. We were kind of quiet during breakfast. We all realized our little adventure around Istanbul was pretty much over.

I don't know how others feel in these situations. I always feel melancholy and sadness when a trip ends. It is because, like my friend Mark said once, you simply leave all your worries and daily nonsense at home when you embark on such an adventure. Yes, I see every little trip and getaway as an adventure. Childish? Maybe, but it allows me to have the best of every experience, domestic or foreign.

So we left Istanbul to get on the highway that initially got us there. It got cloudy and looked like it was about to rain before getting to the border. I guess the weather looked like what I felt. We also drove by the last Mosque we were going to see for a while, the one just outside the border.

We drove to Bulgaria, it's lightless tunnels and bumpy roads.

As I was getting closer, I wished there was a way to stay more, one extra day maybe...Yes, childish.
For some reason I felt like driving the whole way back. Around 750 km, 12 hours with all the pit stops. I got home tired, too tired to think of anything, so I just slept for 12 hours or so. That was it! It was over. I downloaded the photos and chose those to be published on the blogs. While telling the story of how it all was, I kind of re-lived it.

More photos from the road back here.

    Indeed, all the way back all of us were sad. But look on the bright side: we'll always have quite a story to tell and we'll always have where to return to ;)

    Thank you for taking us on your Holiday adventure re-living. I'm sure that everybody here enjoyed it, even if they didn't say so. It's just envy that they weren't there (trust me, I know... I'm one of them:P).
