The purpose of this blog is to track my journey of teaching, travelling and living in Turkey. While my efforts at blogging in the past have been less than successful, I really do want to make an effort to do this for two reasons: Firstly, I want a way to remember all of the amazing things I'm going to experience this year and secondly, I'm hoping this will be a convienent way to keep contact with all of my friends and family back in Canada.
I encourage people to ask questions and make comments on this blog, which will hopefully make it more interactive than just a diary. It also might encourage me to update more frequently.
The flight to Turkey (and this is a long one) is from Moncton to Montreal to Munich to Ankara, all of which I've done before, just not strung together in so many hours. I leave from Moncton at 4pm and will arrive in Ankara at 3pm (their time, which is 6 hours ahead of NB). I'm just about finished packing my two bags and backpacks filled with clothes, shoes and a year's supply of tampons and getting ready to say goodbye to friends and family for nearly a whole year.
It's not long now...
