Australia Trip Plan

Genel @ 12 Eyl├╝l 2012 - 3:40

You may find an example trip plan to Australia below. Me and a friend of mine were prepared it as a homework but it could guide everyone who has responsibility for doing the similar one.

I wish it was real. Unfortunately, it wasn’t…

This plan includes:

  • Two ways tickets between San Francisco and Sydney
  • Visiting┬áthree cities (Sydney, Malbourne and Canberra) and one big national park (Alpine)
  • Staying at 5 stars hotels
  • Renting BMW X6 to travel around the Australia
  • Rafting, climbing, fishing, hiking, horse and camel riding.
  • Guided tours, shows, art galleries, museums, historical places, zoo, shopping and sunbathing!

These applications were used to prepare it: Corel Photoimpact, Microsoft Publisher

Think of a number

Genel @ 20 Mart 2012 - 4:45

One of the bestsellers is “Think of a number” from John Verdon nowadays. It is such a good story but reading this book is not much exciting.

Actually, I had been reading it for a long time. I have just finished it. Maybe that’s why I couldn’t enjoy a lot. At the end of the book is more interesting than first chapters. The┬ábeginning┬áis little bit slow but then you could find yourself in the┬áfascinating story.

My motto for reading books: “Don’t give up, give a chance to the author“. It worked for┬á“Think of a number”!

Genel @ 27 Kas─▒m 2011 - 11:18

Bug├╝nlerde ├žok ara┼čt─▒rmam gereken bir konuydu :) Neler g├Ânderilebilir? Ne kadarl─▒k ├╝r├╝nler g├Ânderilebilir?┬áNihayet do─čru ve ayr─▒nt─▒l─▒ bilgiye ula┼čabildim. ├ľzetle:

  • Toplam de─čeri 75 avrodan d├╝┼č├╝k olan ├╝r├╝nleri (cep telefonu, kozmetik ├╝r├╝nleri, sporcu g─▒dalar─▒ hari├ž) T├╝rkiye’ye vergiden muaf olarak g├Ânderebilirsiniz. Bu ├╝r├╝n├╝n a─č─▒rl─▒─č─▒ 30 kilogramdan y├╝ksek olmamal─▒.
  • Toplam de─čeri 75 avrodan y├╝ksek olan ├╝r├╝nlerde ise G├╝mr├╝k’de ek vergi konuluyor. B├Âylece T├╝rkiye’deki┬áile ayn─▒ fiyata geliyor.
  • Vergi muafiyetinden y─▒lda en fazla 5 kez yararlanabilirsiniz.

E─čer yurtd─▒┼č─▒ndan kendiniz geliyorsan─▒z ve beraberinizde ├╝r├╝n getirmek istiyorsan─▒z:

  • Toplam de─čeri 430 avroyu ge├žmeyen ├╝r├╝nleri vergiden muaf olarak beraberinizde getirebilirsiniz.
  • Toplam de─čeri 430 avrodan y├╝ksek olan ├╝r├╝nlerde ise G├╝mr├╝k’de ek vergi konuluyor.
  • Cep telefonu getirmek konusunda ayr─▒ca bir k─▒s─▒tlama daha var: 2 y─▒lda 1 kez telefon getirme hakk─▒n─▒z var :(

Ayr─▒nt─▒l─▒ bilgi i├žin G├╝mr├╝k ve Ticaret Bakanl─▒─č─▒’n─▒n sitesini inceleyebilirsiniz:
