A little about me..

So here I am. Danni21 years old. An English girl living abroad. Why? Well… You’ve all heard the typical holiday romance stories, right? I’m living one. 

Up til the age of 19, I lived a pretty normal life. Born and raised in Essex, England. I left college with great grades, decided to go on a foreign holiday with my best friend to celebrate, and from then on in, everything changed.
While on holiday, I met a Turkish guy. To cut a long story short, 9 months later, and only having spent 2 full weeks together in that period, I moved to Turkey to be with him. Looking back, I’m suprised my family let me go through with it, I can’t even remember how the ‘Mum, Dad..I’m moving 4000 miles away’ conversation went, I think I must have tucked that little memory up deep inside somewhere. But I do remember it caused a lot of issues. Everyone thought I was naive, family members were wary, and I nearly lost some very good friends because of my decision.
That was in 2011. Now, over two years later, I’m still here. Still happy, still in love, and still living my own little holiday romance story. Do I regret it? Not at all. Things are not as I imagined they would be, no way. But I don’t regret it a bit.
I’ve always been a girl of few words, too shy for my own good, but I mean what I say, and say what I mean. I figured a blog would be the perfect place me to discuss things I’m passionate about, and give people an insight into what life is really like living in a foreign country far away from family, friends and everything I’ve ever known…

More than anything, it’s just a space for me and my thoughts.
