1:52 this bread is made with sourdough, it can stay fresh for 1 week without spoiling.

7:37 The yellow colored house you see across is the house where the Ottoman sultan Suleyman was born.

10:20 this knife is so sharp that you can cut even the paper with this knife

14:17 this road you walk is the famous silk road of history and trade from China to Europe is provided by this road and the historical buildings you see are on this road for accommodation and trade.

16:40 there are sometimes international flights as well as domestic flight at this airport.

17:18 😆😆😆😆 this boy wanted to tell you that the woman is poor(fakir is poor in turkish and it has similiar pronunciation with f***er in english) but he told you that are you f *** er because of his bad english



Turkey never ceases to amaze... You never said how the bread smelt, but I can imagine!

Trabzon is famous for its sourdough bread. Hope you had it! It's called vakfikebir bread.

I only came across you guys today. I love you already! You are so much fun and so relaxed it's brilliant, you even made me smile multiple times 🙂<<< see! 😊

You are to be my adopted family now seeing as I don't have any, I hope that's ok with you 😁 I will call you mummy & daddy, keep it simple 😂😉

The people of Turkey are beautiful, I had no idea, they say hello back when you say hello unlike in the UK! Just think how many other adopted families I could have there 😁 Oh man what a joy Turkey is. I can't believe I didn't know! I need Turkey in my life I reckon, I'd make friends with everyone I could, real genuine friends. I have watched about 6 of your videos so far today, awesome by the way, the friendliness of you two and the Turkish people actually made me well up, true story that is!

Edit: That "Oooohhh you're still there" 😂😂😂😂😂
