23. Out of My Comfort Zone.


Just tying up one last loose string from my previous blog about the BBC. Our home away from home ... away from home ... British brew pub here in Istanbul!

The hubster mentioned to the owner's son (who then mentioned to his dad), that I have learned calligraphy in the past. Oh boy! Well, that doesn't translate to chalk—but the hubster would not take "no" for an answer when said pub owner asked me to draw up their current beer selection. He went off on an adventure to find chalk in this ding-dang city, we spent a couple of afternoons at the pub, and voila! My first attempt at chalk writing is complete. Good enough for now—but I have seriously considered getting a chalkboard so I can practice fancier writing in my free time.

Always the over-achiever! xx

Not as fancy as I'd like—
but it's a start.

Dipping sauce = a puree of garlic,
roasted red peppers, olive oil. Delish!

I love Yorkshire pudding!

Imperial stout.
My favorite offered at this pub.

My barley strikes me as being
a bit Roman!

  1. €10 beers... You have to commit to a lot of drinks to forget how much you have to pay for them I guess!

  3. TL10 not €10; that's more like €4.30 / $5.60. Not bad for a good brew in this town!

  4. My dear Consi, Turkish Lira not Euros. 10TL is ~$6 US. That's not bad for big city livin'! xx

  5. that'd be great if 50cc beers were 10TL. i think it's too much for 33cc beer because other brewing pubs cheaper.

  9. I was glad to hear that your comfort zone referred to your chalk abilities and not to something more serious! :)
