a heavenly getaway at beautiful karia bel hotel in bozburun, marmaris

one cannot get enough of vitamin sea, especially on beautiful costs of turkey.. marmaris area has always been so special for me and bozburun is a hidden gem. and in that hidden gem there is another beauty; karia bel hotel . karia bel is the definition of a quiet get away with good food and nature! with no land access, they welcome you to their hotel with their boats and you settle into your sea viewed rooms, each decorated differently that reflect mediterranean lifestyle, and enjoy 50 shades of blue with your freshly baked pastries or specially prepared drinks.. from it’s owner to each personnel at the hotel, they make sure you feel more than at your home. and in the end you will be addicted and would want to come back before next year.. drop me a message or a like below if you really want to visit this piece of heaven after this post! may you all have great adventures every moment..

the real voyage of discovery consists not in seeking new landscapes but in having new eyes. - marcel proust

Cunda Ortunc Hotel Destination Wedding

Selin and Berke tied the knot at a very beautiful September day in beautiful Cunda. surrounded with olive trees and deep blue water of the aeagean sea; this two-day event was hands down one of my favorite. Selin and Berke live in New York but they wanted to have this special event in Ayvalik area where it is very special for Selin and her family and they kept the event very minimal with some traditional tastes. The wedding was held in famous Ortunc Hotel. Selin has designed her own jewelry, as part of her brand Selin Kent, along with her husband's cufflinks and shirt buttons. Her dress was a long sleeved beautiful Lihi Hod design. Overall the main goal was to have fun with the loved ones all around the world and they sure did achieve this! if you wanna learn more about the details of this lovely wedding you can find little inteview of Selin about her wedding on famous Coveteur with more of my images! <3

santorini , oia travel guide

probably one of the most visited island of greece, santorini provides the infinite feeling of the beautiful mediterranean. on a very hot june weekend, while visiting for a wedding, i get to discover the colorful northern part of the island, oia. this small island welcomes so many tourists that it is very hard to find empty spots to enjoy. but yet i have managed to find my way into this cute town and manage to experience both the hot morning and the breezy afternoon with great sunset view. being a volcanic island, the dark texture of nature meets beautifully with the neat pearl like man made architecture. the one and only pedestrian street of oia is enough to discover the iconic view of the island. blue domed churches, rustic bells, the colorful cliff view and the sunset.. 

because it is a very popular island i highly recommend you to do all your reservations way earlier than usual. the airline fees are very high, hotels are relatively expensive compared to what they offer and restaurants are always packed during dinner time. so plan very ahead. i stayed at family own the flower pension at the very entrance of oia which was walking distance to the main street with a parking lot! which is a lifesaver! i have always liked greek food and the restaurants we have been were also very nice to dine at. candouni, a very small restaurant with live music and nice atmosphere, is in the inner side of oia streets but if you wanna have the view and dine strogili was also a good choice to dine with the sunset. santorini is a destination for everyone. a bit harder with kids with strolling reasons but it can be romantic, adventurous, calming, artsy... you name it. if you give at least of 2 days you'll get to see plenty. but i highly recommend to stay 3 days to see the most of it. 

i hope you'll enjoy the photos as much as i did while taking them! more of the greek island photos to come soon too! and also big thank you to dilara&gokalp from puciwed for taking my portraits too! <3
