Buying a Turkish Rug

turkish-rug-sfb

[google1] My sister Bridgette has been bugging out for a Turkish rug for a long time. Now that we’re finally in Turkey I decided this would be a perfect time to find out what all the fuss is about and see if I could buy her one. Turns out I can’t because they are WAY expensive. Well at least the real ones are. I’ve been intimidated by most of the rug sellers in Turkey. You…

The piece also gives another glimpse into our time WWOOFing in Italy, which is why I chose to rework the title. Bombed into near oblivion during World War II…

The Essential Wwoofing Pack List

Anna just got injured but you'd never know it. Having a good sense of humor is key to enjoying life on the farm.

Packing for the first leg of our RTW was tough! Not only were we camping our way through Europe (with a tent, etc), but we were going through an array of temperatures – from Iceland to Southern Italy. On top of that I really wanted to wwoof and I had no idea what type of clothes to bring. Then I had to pack all this stuff into a backpack! Aghh!
