  1. Hello Kaitlyn & Co.,

    I loved reading your blog post about Turkey and it was such a pleasure for Younes and I to have gotten the chance to meet you and your family there! Just to refresh your memory, we were your neighbors at Bunk Hostel and we shared some delicious Persian snacks together :)

    I hope to meet you guys again sometime soon! I will be traveling to Australia in mid-February so if this somehow corresponds with your dates there, it would be so exciting to meet again. Hope to be in touch!

    Big hug,
