This weekend we will gather around a fireplace in a mountain lodge lounge area with panoramic windows overlooking the Beykoz forests, not too far from Istanbul. Believe it or not but surely this is an iconic wilderness experience in Istanbul borders close to Black Sea. Interestingly, this is one of the rare places you can hear nightingales that breed in nettles, hops and raspberry bushes around the lodge. If not nightingales, surprisingly, you will definitely hear other exotic songs of birds that you don’t recognize from the city. After midnight, jackals and wild pigs pay visits to vast hill tops behind the bungalows. Squirrels hop over the bungalow roofs and race around. Early in the morning you can smell the wonderful aromas from the stone oven that fresh breads, pizzas, and other cakes are baked for breakfast. We spend quality time in this place and would also like to invite you to join us. Join us to boost your psychological health.
