something unexpected happened to me- such is life :-( - so my plans to visit turkey, cyprus and malta have been put on hold for the short term. only for the short term mind. since whatever happened rendered me useless in planning and budgeting for matters turkey, cyprus and malta, i decided to make up for it and do some small time travelling around the uk, and then of course write about it.
so, for my current travel writing blog, visit me here.
still, i promise you that turkey, cyprus and malta are still on my mind and i shall 'do' them one day. only not any time soon.

the deal with online surveys is that most of them give you points for every survey you take and then when your points accumulate to a certain amount you can exchange then for shopping vouchers. Yay! It might not be hard cash but atleast you get the money to buy stuff, therefore you get to save your own money.
i have about 60, 000 points with toluna, which is 20, 000 short of the amount needed to get a £15 shopping voucher. Meager I know, but I'm trying to do anything and everything. I must say though, these surveys are not for everyone, they can really test your patience. I can't tell you how much I've clicked on the 'don't know' option on some surveys because I was either too tired or just couldn't be bothered but needed the bloody points anyway.

i have a love affair with this country. to say i'm obsessed is an understatement because i'm bloody obsessed with turkey! i've even considered studying there or living there but that's another story.
my love for turkey started purely by accident. it was august last year and i was all over the place, no plans e.t.c, before i knew it i had met people from turkey who later became my friends and it went on until i just randomly found myself with a bunch of people i call friends from turkey (the list is still growing). the rest as the say is history. well, actually not because i then went to cyprus and spent two weeks in north cyprus and fell in love with the turkish language, culture and basically everything turkish.
so now i want to go to turkey itself.
