What You Could Get in Kalabaka for $10 – What’s More Than Meteora In This Small Town

Hi everyone! 😀

Time has passed so fast that we’re now already in mid-January. You know what that means? It’s only a month to go until my 30th birthday. I’m so getting ready to bid farewell to my 20s, but it’s not the case because we’re now back to the $10 series.

So, after we once talked about how you could spend your $10 in Athens, right now we’re going to some other place in Greece. And in this opportunity, I’m lucky to reconnect with Lindsay of Carpe Diem My Way as she volunteered to cover the town of Kalabaka in the country.

Hello, everyone! 😀

The second Wednesday of 2019, and my correspondence with Lindsay from My Trampoline Kids took me back to summer 2010 instead. Time flies so fast that I didn’t even notice that it’s almost 9 years already ever since I left Izmir.

Yes, on this week’s $10 series, we’ll go to the Aegean coast to see how you could spend your $10 in Izmir. When I read Lindsay’s piece on this, I’ve got so many things to add on but then again I’m not sure how much 9 years have changed the city.

3 years ago, I was also in Turkey but I, unfortunately, didn’t get a chance to stop by the present area of Smyrna and only had a chance to visit my friend in Mersin and my then-boyfriend in Istanbul.
