The Turkey Diaries: Arriving in Malatya

After spending a few days in Istanbul, arriving in Malatya was a little bit of a shock, but it was also a really nice escape from being in such a touristy city. While Istanbul is located in the west of Turkey, Malatya is located all the way in eastern Turkey, which is known to be more conservative and religious. It was pretty funny being a tourist in Malatya mainly because they rarely get tourists, due to being a lesser-known city, so I stood out like a sore thumb.

Malatya is absolutely stunning though with snow-capped mountains in every direction you looked. I was just speechless looking at the beauty of the city during the cab ride to Inönü University, which is where Jeremy lives and teaches. That and the fact that I didn't know Turkish so I couldn't speak with the cab rider whose knowledge of English was non-existent.

We kept it pretty relaxing during our first full day in Malatya, mainly because Jeremy had to teach a class that day. It was so much fun meeting his students and actually seeing Jeremy as a teacher. Jeremy even played show-and-tell with me and let his class ask me various questions about everything from my job to my race. I can't wait to share with you guys more about Malatya in the next post. :)


  1. Love the simplicity of this outfit, because you pull it off so well! I would've been so intimidated with a show and tell in front of an entire class, what kind of questions were asked?


  2. Love this outfit! And the pics are really, really nice =]
