I couldn’t help but to read the books of travellers and watch their experience videos lately. Doğu Ekspresi (East Express) was one of those. Since it is in the east part of Turkey and has an uncomfortable image (maybe), it isn’t a common choice for a trip. But with the videos we watched, we wanted to go there so badly and then we took out. 
East Express is a railroad servicing between Ankara and Kars. The route is: Ankara > Kırıkkale > Kayseri > Sivas > Erzincan > Erzurum > Kars.
We took our place on “Couchette Compartment”. 4-person armchairs turn into beds. They give you clean sheets and pillow covers. Everything is comfortable and clean. 
Train leaves the station at 18.00 and arrives to Erzincan around 6.30. You wake up to a view of deep blue river among the mountains. Not to miss anything, we watch outside without blinking an eye. As we approach to Erzurum, the view turns into an endless emptiness. Just then we hear Redd’s lyrics in the compartment. “What would a person do in this emptiness, gets bored and watch the moon.” You don’t get bored not one second even though the trip longs 25 hours. 
We welcome the sunset as well. The changing colours of the sky reflect on the snow. Though we have a sadness because the train trip is over, arriving to Kars makes us happy. 
The first stop of the day after is Çıldır Lake. There is a fish restaurant over there. A man from Kars working in the restaurant welcomes us, telling the story of the lake. It freezes on December and stays like this until April. The thickness of the ice is approximately 50 cm. You go on top of the lake with horses and sleds. White and emptiness all out… While looking at it, your brain is freshened, you get calm. We say hi to white foxes on the way. 
Our next stop is Ani Ruins on the Armenian border.  We end our route after an 8 km. walk by seeing all of the ruins. Ani Antique City is located on one of the most important trade routes of the world The Silk Road. It was built by Armenians on the 10th century. There are impressive churches and ruins of mosques in the city. Arpaçay River is like a natural border between Armenia and Turkey. It is a very big impressive slit. 
Then we go back to the airport. Emptiness is filled with concrete now.

Chat with Pırıl Arıkonmaz

I am Pırıl Arıkonmaz.
The first thing I do in the mornings is having an espresso. 
I came to Sanayi 313 today because I wanted to see the works of Devran Mursaloğlu hanging on the wall. 
I had “kokoreç” (grilled sheep’s intestines) at Sanayi 313. 
Among the desserts I had SKIP .
The first things that caught my eyes while going around the store were the books about gardening. 
Sanayi 313 Atelier mules stayed on my mind the most. 
After leaving Sanayi 313, I went around artists’ ateliers. There is no going back from Maslak without passing by Kemal Tufan, Günnur Özsoy and Seda Gazioğlu!
Before going to bed I always drink water.

Enis took me to the first days of Sanayi 313 with the Mood Board he prepared. The woman’s face taking place in the middle of the Mood Board was drawn by Seda Gazioğlu just before 313 was opened. The wheel around the image is symbolizing the Oto Sanayi area whereas the strong woman is a metaphor for the changing face of Sanayi. 
Today as a team, we are carrying the same excitement we had those days. That’s why I am proud of us all. 
The other objects of the Mood Board are pieces from Sanayi 313 Cruise Collection, our production chocolates, old timers of Sanayi 313 James Plumb bench and mirror, Enis’ design General Gordon poufs and Cathy Dalwood’s “Turkish Girl” sculpture which is a special edition. There are also the stairs of the store and 313’s irreplaceable the multi-purpose stools. 
Actually all those pieces remind me of different memories. The first picture I shared on Instagram was 313’s stairs. Chocolate was the first thing I brought home from 313. The multi-purpose stools (you can put your coat and bag inside it) were the first to attract my attention from the store. 
Cheers to the firsts…

Time management is a big issue. Prioritizing is the solution. 
From a TED talk I watched (video attached), I had some suggestions:
Going to the future, at the end of the year and stating what would make you happy in terms of career, family and self… 
I just wrote mine down:
CAREER
1) Writing Sanayi 313 Blog in the best way possible.
2) Publishing the book I wrote during my pregnancy.
3) Reading as many books as possible.
FAMILY
1) Spending good time with my family.
2) Raising my baby in the best possible way.
3) Providing a spiritual development for my family.
SELF
1) Healthy body with sports and balanced diet.
2) Spiritual development.
3) Educational development.

Now I am going to manage my time according to the priorities I have.

Sanayi 313 Bebek is open now. We are excited for our new spot in many ways. It’s a brand new location, it's open seven days a week, until 9.30 p.m. We are serving dinner, too. There is a one big table inside; we are sharing the table with strangers and socializing with them. We are sitting in front of Sanayi 313 Bebek, watching the streets of the most posh neighborhood of Istanbul. 
Another reason of our excitement is our collaboration with PG Art Gallery. PG is exhibiting on one of the walls of Sanayi 313 Bebek. Maura Sullivan, who is known for her black and white photography, is the first artist we are welcoming.

Chat with Sertab Erener

I am Sertab Erener.
The first thing I do in the morning is having a cup of ginger tea. 
I came to Sanayi 313 today because there is brunch.
I couldn’t resist the trifle among the desserts. 
The first thing that caught my eye was the interior design of the store.
The high ceiling remained on my mind the most from Sanayi 313.
After leaving Sanayi 313, I thought of coming here again.
Before going to bed every night I put on my night cream.

Our Creative Director Enis Karavil, who emphasizes on contrast in design, is creating “one of a kind” objects with his team. 
Even Karavil himself did not know that the oversized mirror, which he got from the antique fair during his visit to England, would turn into a coffee table…
“C” coffee table unfolds the powerful contrast between the cylinder base made out of ash tree and its brass body. 
One of the exciting components of this coffee table for the design team is seeing the reflections of the objects or the treats that the mirror is going to carry. 
The design story, which is private for Karavil, has many mysteries. Its name “C” is coming from the belt on the body.
