The Five Elements of Santa Cruz Island

In the history book, the island Santa Cruz offers many interesting chapters: being disconnected from the rest of the world until mid-18th century ( Chumas people enjoyed the disconnection before) , being controlled by several missionaries and expeditions, serving as one of the most critical base during the World War II and some point being the largest privately owned island. Today this has become a national park, one of the attractive destinations for island packers.

During my recent visits to this island, these are the stories of the nature I could listen to.


The Five Elements


enjoying the open




and conversation


telling stories


of the Earth


the Water


the Air the Fire


and the Ether,








and sometimes deceiving


or silently observing around the Moon Point

  1. Kurye olarak hizmet veren kişiler, bulundukları lokasyondaki her adrese en kısa sürede ulaşma yolunu bilirler. Üstelik verilen bu görevi hava, trafik ve buna benzer diğer olumsuz şartlardan etkilenmeden yerine getirirler. Yani iş hayatı başta olmak üzere hayatın hemen her alanında önemli görevleri üstlenebilir ve başarıyla yerine getirebilirler. Özellikle büyük şehirlerdeki trafik kaosu ve adres konusundaki karmaşa göze alınırsa, kurye hizmetlerinden faydalanmanın bazı durumlarda zorunlu hale geleceği anlaşılabilir. Örneğin İstanbul’un bir noktasından diğer bir noktasına acil şekilde önemli bir evrak ulaştırmak gerektiğinde ya da hastanızın ihtiyacı olan ilacı acil ve güvenli bir şekilde ulaştırmak gerektiğinde, İstanbul moto kurye hizmetimizden faydalanarak sorununuza çözüm üretebilirsiniz.
