  1. Your movie list is so similar to mine! In fact, I am going to bookmark this, so I can watch some of them again. Add Turkey to your wishlist. From all of the countries I’ve ever lived in, it’s my absolute favorite!

    P.S. Where are these caves that you mentioned? :O I want to have a midnight adventure too!

    • Oo Turkey. Having grown in a house where Turkey is like second home I forgot mentioning it only. That is one country first on list of must visits.
      Those caves are in an university campus in delhi …We spent the whole night searching and found it early morning 😀 So was quite a fun expedition 🙂
