Things to Do in North Carolina


North Carolina Zoo

Zoos are the most exciting places for children. Therefore, we went to the North Carolina Zoo on December 15. Although, it was a bit cold, Elif and all of us spent amazing time there Logistic It took almost 1 hour and 15 minutes from Chapel Hill to the North Carolina Zoo by car. It was […]

North Carolina State Farmers Public Market, Raleigh

Projects, midterm exams, homework, assignments, reading papers, term papers, more homework, more problem sets… This was a snapshot of the life of a graduate student during the semester. In the middle of the first semester, Aysegul, Elif and I were too bored with these tasks. Therefore, we decided to go to the North Carolina State […]

Wrightsville Beach in Wilmington, NC

Wrightsville Beach in Wilmington NC is one of the best beaches on the East Coast. It is a long sandy and sunny beach. In September 2020, we made a daily trip from Chapel Hill to Wilmington with our friends. That was an amazing experience. Our kids played whatever they wanted for hours.  The Road Trip […]

Duke is not only successful in education but also on campus and recreations. I think the Duke Campus is one of the best campuses in the USA. The buildings and the atmosphere is charming. Some buildings look like Hogwarts School in Harry Potter movies.  Aysegul, Elif, and I visit the campus at some weekends to walk […]

The administration of the museum made big changes to help protect the health and safety of our guests. I took tickets from the online store of the museum and made an appointment. The location of the […]

Just like an American dream: Fearrington Village

First, Aysegul and her friends went to Fearrington Village. Then she told us how amazing there was. After that, we decided to go there all together.  I heard that this village was an English-inspired village nestled in the idyllic countryside of the North Carolina piedmont. It was a place beyond my dreams. If one day I get […]

Al Buehler Trail During Winter Season

Duke forest, small hills, ponds, bridges, golf ground, and more… Al Buehler Trail includes all of those. It is a 3-mile-trail (5-km) near the Duke campus in Durham. We believe that it is one of the best trails in the region where we live. Bikes and motor vehicles are prohibited in Al Buehler Trail. So […]
