📍 Safranbolu, Karabük, Turkey 🇹🇷
📌 Yüzyıllar boyunca Çin'den Anadolu topraklarına uzanan tarihi İpekyolu üzerinde kurulmuş irili ufaklı yüzlerce kervansaraydan biri de Safranbolu'daki Cinci Han'dır.

📌 Tarihi İpekyolu'nun etkinliğini yitirmeye başladığı 20'nci yüzyıla kadar kervansaray olarak kullanılan Cinci Han şu an otel olarak kullanılmaktadır.

I’ve been freelancing and traveling for about 3.5 years. Once a year, my birthday reminds me to take a moment to jot down a few reflections. Over time, this has become a list of values that quickly remind who I am, where I’ve been, and who I continue to strive to be. It’s that time of the year again, so here’s my current list:
➱ CULTIVATE CONNECTION. Good people are awesome - there’s absolutely no replacement for this. Make genuine connections and go spend more time with people who care.
➱ SAY YES TO OPPORTUNITY. Peak anxiety and overwhelming excitement are not mutually exclusive. It probably means that you’re doing something uncomfortably exciting that you’ll grow from and remember later on. Embrace it and run with it.
➱ LET STRESS BE A CHOICE. All that premature white hair disappears when you lose things to stress out about. I’ve gotten caught twice with a backpack and no place to live by new covid lockdowns. The most recent time also happened to coincide with crunchtime on #starwarsvisions . With access to housing, food, and transportation via cell phone in both cases, I was sorted within a train ride. Shit happens. Have an emergency fund and support network of family and friends to tap into to make stress a choice.
➱ PRIORITIZE SELF CARE. Repetitive stress injuries, joint issues, and digestive malfunctions don’t go away easily. I now have a regular morning breathwork, afternoon exercise, and weekly self care routing that I can follow no matter where I am in the world.
➱ KNOW WHAT YOU NEED TO BE PRODUCTIVE. Maintain a clear list of the things you need in order to operate optimally for a 2-week vs 2–month vs long-term stay. Turns out, the lists really aren’t that long. But giving it conscious thought makes it so much easier NOT to compromise on what you need to be happy and productive.
I could keep going, but five seems about right this year. What’s in your top five?
