Dont you love blogging?? I especially love it when I finally meet a favorite blogger in the real world.Well, Phivos of Taxidiaris and his wife Poppy are here in İstanbul this weekend.
We have met on Friday afternoon and as you can guess there were so many things to share and learn about each other. It was a lovely evening. I believe that a virtual friendship turned into a lifelong one that evening.
We even managed to visit the Orthodox Patriarchate before the dinner. It was a rainy night before the Easter but still lots of visitors were there..
It was so nice to meet with you guys...Lets try to do it again soon...
How wonderful to meet your blogging friends and share this time together.. I hope your weekend created wonderful memories... xx JulieReplyDelete

Lucky Phivos and Poppy, lucky you.ReplyDelete
Isn't that great? Those of us who live in large cities are lucky; it's easier to meet blogging friends. I met one on Friday. The funny thing is I had met her on an Australian blog but we both live in California!ReplyDelete
