Category: ☉Notes on short trips

Based on my individual experiences I share my (mostly visual) notes about my journeys; short trips. Most of them around Anatolia. You can also find some review about places or tips for the roads.

Water Hike

Bertha Bert in Natureland

Joyful heart in limpid water 
Oh, the sound of this brilliant water is amazing
Water Walk/hike is very fun as I expected. I have only got a few little scars.
I couldn’t take many photos. This one comes from the calmest part of the path.
Wonderful place to practice my balance pose 
It has been a bright day 
Wishing you a wonderful weekend 

Climbing a mountain

I will attempt to climb a mountain  this weekend!!! 
Whether I can do this or not, trying to climb this mountain gives me a great excitement! 
I know that even daily hiking or only one night staying under the stars 🌌will mean a lot to me and change my mood even the days after. They are great short-cut to mindfulness and direct flight ✈️from the regular life to entire immersion in atmosphere full of qualitatively different sounds 🎶🎵🐦and images🌲🌳🌻🌸🌼. More sunlight, more oxygen, more bird songs, more green and…ah, streams 💧and of course increased physical activity. What can boost serotonin better? 🤗All ticked in one without costing a fortune. This has a little bit extra in it. I have to admit that climbing a peak part thrills me a lot!! 😆😊
MAY YOU ALL HAVE EXCELLENT WEEKEND 💖

St. Pierre Church

 

St. Pierre Church is an ancient cave church located just outside modern Antakya. You can observe Antakya from top of the hill where the church was located. Astonishingly beautiful natural site, full of olive trees, becomes even more striking with knowing its history and significance.

It was admitted as the F I R S T   C A T H E D R A L   O F   T H E   W O R L D !

“St. Pierre, to whom the church was dedicated, is the founder of the Antakya Church and the archpriest of the first Christian Community here and also the first Pope in the world. St. Pierre church and its surroundings played a significant role in the period of the early Christianity and expansion of the belief.
