Hey, I am Derya, blogger based in London/Dubai. Here you will find me documenting my travels, food and also talking about life and happiness. Since opening my blog I feel like I am constantly learning and sharing ideas. I feel so much more grateful and content with my life. Although starting a blog is easy I have realised, managing it is not.  Coming up with interesting ideas, interacting with readers and building a community around the blog are awesome challenges that would force you to keep learning and growing. I have to constantly write and publish often and I have learned how to manage my time wisely. I have met amazing people during my journey some that I will stay lifelong friends with.


I have always been a creative person but since having my own online journal I image better and create ideas that challenge me.

Personally, I’ve found that the feeling of having inspired, helped or saved someone is what gives me the greatest joy. I’ve heard many other people say the same thing. And since I’ve embraced blogging, it has helped me become more generous with my knowledge. There’s an amazing bliss I feel with every positive comment, email, tweet and Facebook share I get from readers whose worlds my words have impacted.

It’s a great feeling and money cannot buy it.

I spend a lot of time and effort every single day on this and I hope you enjoy reading.
