Gotta love it! AIA made another Top 10 list!! Check it out:
10 expat blogs about living in Turkey – Property Turkey.
Extensive information on Adventures in Ankara, include day trips and excursions, interaction with expat societies and groups in the region. She also focuses on issues such as food, family life, healthcare as a foreigner and language difficulties. Anyone planning to live in Ankara will definitely benefit from her wide source of knowledge and contacts.
I am sure you all remember the “hype” a couple of months ago. Everyone was taking the ALS Bucket Challenge. I did it myself . . . sans bucket.
Sadly, and as always, people had negative things to say about it – mostly because not everyone was donating cash for the cause. But the naysayers were quickly silenced because one of the biggest goals of the challenge was to raise awareness.
And that we did. I took the challenge myself for Team Audry, a high school friend. I am proud to share her Facebook update with you, in case you also donated to her Team:
Hi everyone!!! Just wanted to give a shout out to Team Audry!!! With all of your generous donations Team Audry raised over $10,500 for The Ocean City Walk To Defeat ALS!!! I love you all So proud to know each and every one of you! Great job!
Whether or not you took the challenge, donated to Team Audry (it’ not too late) or ALS, or simply shared my blog post, I want to Thank You. We are making a difference!
Team Audry, Ocean City Walk to Defeat ALS
We love you too, Audry!!!
