Stratis is a short version of my grandfather's name which is Efsratios and it means "to follow a good road in your life". We thought Efe Stratis works well instead of Efstratios, but people struggle to pronounce it! Also this way DS has a Turkish and a Greek name (just to confuse the poor kid more) What do your children's names mean?
I know what you mean about spending some time in Turkey! We have been thinking to spend 6 months in Greece, and 6 in Instanbul, but haven't figured out how to do it! I come from Lefkada, which is one of the Ionian Islands in the Northwest of Greece, and Kaan comes from Instanbul. He loves the island, but the job opportunities are very limited in a small place, so we are stuck with sunny Manchester. We didn't actually decide to stay here, it just happened. We met here while studying, and then we haven't felt ready to move somewhere else. We are working at it though!
Are you celebrating Christmas? I know they don't really do so in Turkey, but thank god Kaan loves the whole thing! We actually call xmas "Goosemas",cause we love the Goose so much!
