In May, right in the middle of starting a new life in Istanbul, 8-months pregnant, a husband and 4-year old in tow, Asia Spa magazine asked me whether I would like to write an article about myself for their upcoming Adventure issue. "Sure", I said, "that shouldn't be too hard". Stories and experiences to draw from I had plenty, but taking a pencil (I correct: sitting down in front of my laptop) and trying to condense it all to a few pages of text in a magazine, turned out to be a not-so-easy exercise.
Writing about yourself is a bit like masturbating in public (excuse my language and please tell me if you can think of a better analogy): It feels good but somewhat embarrassing at the same time.
The result of my 'public exposure', a 6-page article entitled "A Life Less Ordinary", can be found in this month's issue of Asia Spa, which I have posted here as a PDF for those who really want to read it. Would be great to hear some comments.
