I am glad I had you...

The one night getaway turned into two…My beloved had scheduled a meeting that evening at Bursa…so we thought… well…why not, eh? Bursa means Uludağ…which usually equals to snow…and the kids have missed the snow coz İstanbul unfortunately do not produce enough snow for their liking…so we decided to tag along…

Anyway, we left our home that Tuesday morning with the weather forecast predicting a very bad weather that day. True enough… the ferry that crossed us to Yalova was moving side tos ide almost violently… our mounty roads to bursa was greeted with strong wind and raindrops of snow which made us prayed for our own lives…Still, we drove on to the place where we would be staying for the night…

The kids demanded Uludağ mountain first instead of lunch even though it was almost their lunch time..they were eager to meet Mr. Snow….We succumbed to their requests and fed them milk and sandwiches that i made for the journey. ..

The journey up the mountain was quite scary as snowy some parts were sort of icy…but the view of trees covered in snowflakes was magnificently breathtaking…Yup.. Uludağ do have snow!! Yippie!!



We went to the place we went last year where there were the slide vehicle for us to rent and slide down the slope… the kids had enjoyed it last year…u can imagined our disappointment when we discovered that place was empty!! I guess the season has not started yet…but we did played snow fight and just walked around the place which was thigh deep in snow and simply had fun!!







We decided to rent the slide later and decided to slide somewhere else…Yup… we went to slide where someone pointed us to.. there were also a group of high school girls there sliding… we joined them…I thought that place was quite dangerous but the kids wanted to slide…and so..they did…..until…..

Two girls on a slide suddenly went off way and slided towards a higher harder slope and simply fly up in the air, their slide turned upside down and of about one metre high fell on their faces… right in front of where Hatice and ı were standing…..! My beloved and i were shocked…. I looked at him for signs on what to do.. after a few stumping moments… we both ran to the girls…. One were unconcious..the other were crying from the pain on her neck….It was a good thing the accident was right next to Acibadem polyclinic..the medical help was right next door…


Naturally that took away the joy of everything… as parents we couldnt help but to think..what if that were our kids? All the ifs….which scared the hell out of us…


But we still let the kids slide on a less dangerous way… with us watching them like a hawk more than ever…. The kids still had fun..which was really important for us…..We went down the mountain to catch up with the meeting my beloved had to attend.. and yup.. we had a late lunch…if u can call that lunch…at almost 5pm that day!! Hahah and yes… baddin was simply eating the snow whenever he thought i was not looking when we were in Uludağ!! hahaha


The next morning was simply trying to find our ways to Oylat.. the place where we were to stay for the night…. it was outside of Bursa..passing Inegöl (where the köfte is very famous)… and again..we were up and down the road of a mountain to reach Oylat…a place famous for its Thermal water/bath…


We were awed…the trees were covered in snowflakes which made the view unbelievably gorgeous.. i felt as if i was in wonderland…Yenges (my beloved aunties) g oto this place every year.. they have talked of this place for years…. Now i believe them :0)…


But before the hotel…it was the cave visiting… the cave is soooooooooooo big and deep that af first the kids were scared….but they finally got over their fears and were able to appreciate the beauty of formations inside the cave.. .. it was really awesome indeed!! I mean..i had been inside caves in Malaysia… but this is simply.. worth going to!!



Anyway, we went to our hotel room where we discovered our suit hotel room has 3 single beds and one double bed of two connecting rooms which was spacious for 5 people… we had a bit of jungle trekking only to stop before we reached the waterfalls due to the snowy icy roads… and the thermal pool? Hmmm… now i see why people like it so much….the health properties in the water and the after effects of the hot pool was indeed refreshing!! I liked it so much that i was even willing to wake up early and go to the thermal bath at 6.30 in the morning! Hahahah..Oylat…. It was simply the hot bath…the stunning view all over with only the screams of my beloved and kids having snow fights and the sound of gushes of water from the river to entertain a soul….Baddin even cried that morning coz he didnt wanna get ready for breakfast coz he knew that we would go back to İstanbul after that…we had to promise him that we would come back again one day for 2 days (at least) the next time…


Yes, 3 days and 2 nights at 2 different places… that was our winter holiday this year…I am glad i had you coz i had the most amazing time of my life….and i know Halil, Hatice and Baddin will agree with me too…!

Eating, loving, singing and digesting are, in fact, the four acts of the jocose opera known as way of life, and they pass like bubbles of a grit of champagne. Whoever lets them cripple without having enjoyed them is a entire fool.
