Who am I? It is hard to answer this question while the reason of this journey is to find the answer. But I can tell who was I so far, may be it could help. In dictionary it is defined as 28 year old editor who was born in Ankara, trying to survive in Istanbul for 2 years, heart beating in Bodrum but actually belongs to nowhere. Slave of media, rat of subway. My friends call me “ Meker”. Just a simple abbreviation of Merve Eker.
People of Ankara are kind of control freaks. I am also one of them. For me there is always “beter option than I had chosen” in life. My sentences usually starts with “ohh I should have done…”. Murphy is my goddess. Don’t understand anything of Secret, Quantum, reiki, meditation etc. The only thing I think of while doing yoga is what to eat after the class. Indeed, I usually decide what to eat at diner from the morning. Never can carry a small bag cause I can’t put my umbrella and socks in it otherwise!
However there is some part trying to become free inside me. If I really want something, never look for logic. Even I prefer the unlogical option in purpose. There is even logic in my illogical behavior. I just have to know what I really want, then everythins is OK. That is why the name of this journey is “soul free project”. This soul needs to be relieved, freed and needs to ignore the rest. It is all about changing the mind and vision. There is no need to go far away to do it but I believe changes could bring others within. We’ll see. Rest of the metropol people could try to be relieved with alcohol etc., I prefer to find myself through exploring, questioning, recognizing. Briefly, the answer of “Who am I?” will be found on this blog.
I am sorry that this is not a typical travel blog informing you what to do or not to do on your journey. Since my travel partner is Murphy you can learn not to do as you read. Reason to choose South America is to free my soul with getting know free souls, to see a different world in an area where capitalism did not ruin everything completely.
