2007-01-03 [LiKeaNaDDiCt]: ughh :) :p
2007-01-03 [banu]: Why?:P
2007-01-03 [LiKeaNaDDiCt]: hahah i dont know :)
2007-01-03 [banu]: ok then :P
2007-01-04 [banu]: That's bad :P
2007-01-04 [Elmiira]: I checked.. he's on my list. :D well, it's more like funny if you don't take it too seriously.. these messages I mean. As long as they are not hurting you. But anyway, my mother has been in Turkey and I've seen pics. It looks really a beautiful place. :) Though we all think our own country is the best , I think :P Or at least many people do.
2007-01-04 [banu]: Sure, we all think our own country is the best but maybe we can say "one of the best countries"!:)Where has your mother been to?If you want to see more pics, please check Wandering in Turkey out:)
2007-01-05 [spincrus]: Trust me, I've almost been all around the world (except Far-East Asia, Australia and South America, if you exclude Cuba of course, oh and the poles for sure) and honestly, Anatolia is among the top 5 of the "must-see places before you die".
2007-01-06 [Elmiira]: So you've been in northern Europe too? :D Meaning Finland, Sweden, Norway and Iceland? :) No, really, I believe you. I haven't travelled a lot, so I cannot say much. I just know I love this place and would never change it for anything.. Finland I mean. But I would love to see so much about the world.. Including all the beautiful places. :D My mother visited.. oh, I don't remember the name of the city.. it was one of the touristplaces anyway. :) Hehe, I always remember the way she told me about the school uniforms.. :D She just loved them. She was like "Why can't there be things like that here, they would be so nice, simple and they were so pretty.." :D
2007-01-06 [spincrus]: Iceland I haven't been to yet (thanks to Sigur Ros, I'll probably go there sometime in the future), but Sweden, Denmark and Finland I have been to. Haven't seen the Fjords yet, though.
But seriously, although these countries have an incredible, and I mean INCREDIBLE nature, it's not as diverse as Anatolia. Scandinavian nature is somewhat uniform, although very pretty.
In Anatolia, at one spot you can see a reindeer in a lush forest, and at another spot you can see a striped hyena gnawing on a dead sheep. Go to high altitudes and you'll find packs of wolves, bears and what not, and go to somewhat drier lands and if you're lucky (and if it still hasn't gone extinct) you might, might see an Anatolian Leopard (Pardus).
At one peak, go skiing, and with a one hour drive, you can enjoy the sun at the beach. Go to the Black Sea and enjoy what a Northern sea would feel like, and travel to the Mediterranean just to discover the lands the ancient Greek, Hittites, Assyrians, Byzantine, Romans, Persians have lived on.
This country is seriously to die for when you think about it.
2007-01-06 [Shainn]: umm hyena? in anatolia? I seriosly doubt it. we have coyotes, yes but I do not think we have the hyena. or do we?
and reindeer? :D they are deers and gazelles.
but oh ok I get the point. this place IS beautiful and has a diverse environment.
one of the earliest homo sapiens sites as well, just after east africa and then the middle east.
ahahah and we STILL have this:
2007-01-06 [spincrus]: http://en.wiki
Even Wikipedia supports my claim :D No, seriously, I've heard quite a bit about hyenas in Anatolia (including a friend who did his military duty two years ago). They aren't THAT common but yes, there are some.
Oh and yes, I didn't mean to say reindeer :D Regular deer. You can't find reindeer here :D
OOOH let's not forget that we have flamingos during spring, summer and autumn (Manyas Lake, etc...)
We also still have Neanderthals and Homo erectus walking among us!
2007-01-06 [Shainn]: ahahhahah ;D
2007-01-07 [Elmiira]: lol. :D But I believe it's beautiful. I just wouldn't survive there for long, because it's so damn hot there.. Or so I've heard. :D I'd stay on the mountains skiing then. :D But seriously, I would like to see it.. as well as many other places on this planet. I don't really think anyone can say what is the most beautiful place.. because there are so many places that are all different and all beautiful. There are so many different kinds of beauty. Hehe, and of course it's uniform, as there is only few species that can survive here. My loving for this place is unfair, cause I cannot compare it with anything. This is what I've always seen, and afgter sharing my childhood, my secrets, my laughs and cries with the forests and lakes here, i cannot really find anything else as good. That sounds poetic, but really, the nature has always played a big part in my life. Ever since I was old enough to run, I've played in the forests, climbed to the trees.. and when something's really wrong, I just went to my special place.. It was a little "island" in the middle of two rapids.. there were a few trees growing there and cliff to sit on.. And there I sat, under a birch tree, the loud noice of flowing watwer around me, and let the nature calm my bad feeling. After that, you really can't blame me for saying this place is the best. :D
