Those who follow me on Instagram and Snapchat (@veroniquedeval) know that I was invited to discover the black sea region of Turkey a couple weeks ago.
The trip was organised by Türkei Tourism and as expected our schedule was jam-packed. We spent 5 days discovering the hidden green mountains of Borçka-Karagöl, rafting down the river Firtina, picking tealeaves at a traditional tea plantation, visiting ancient mosques of Rize, sunbathing by the Black Sea and all the while drinking lots and lots of delicious Turkish tea. Every meal was accompanied by delicious Köfte (a kind of meatball) and a traditional shepherd's salad, made up of tomatoes, cucumbers, onions and lettuce. Our nights were partly spent in grande 5 star hotels in the City of Trabzon and the also in adorable, traditional huts way up in the mountains. Discovering the foreign country and culture was most rewarding, a real treat and most definitely eye-opening. Thank you again!
