Wanderlust and Terrible Dust

Wednesday morning I headed to Kütahya, if you have been following our blog for 10 years and have an excellent memory, you might remember that we have an old house there.

It is about 500km from our home, normally I take the longer route as it is a highway but I took by accident the shorter one and I ended up in some cute villages which were also fun.

Traffic was mostly a bunch of geese :)

I was in Kütahy till Saturday evening. The house was in a much worse state, we never went there in the past 10 years. I didn't take any photos, everything was covered in a thick layer of dust, windows were broken and thieves even stole the doors and metal work of the windows. Time was not so kind to the building but it was the people who ruined it.

As it is a historic building I went to several governmental offices that might buy it. I also spoke to the new Mayor of Kütahya which is luckily not part of AKparty which is a big improvement and a lucky break. Hopefully, soon they'll buy it and renovate it, I'm not holding my breath but at least I did something about it. I stayed with friend's who are some of the sweetest people we know which was a ray of sunshine in the otherwise somber visit.


  1. Oh how come you have such a house?
    And it looks pretty impressive, I hope it gets bought, so it can be restored!

  2. It would be interesting to see its interiors. way and destroyed by time
    I wish you quickly find a buyer

  3. Great picks. To have a house you have to have a heavy bag of money, but to have two houses ... If the house is empty, the best is to sell it out.
