DSC03650I love Istanbul! This city is one of my favourite cities in the world to visit and hang out in. It has a bit of everything but still has a special flavour.

I can spend days just wandering around different parts of the city and just throw myself into daily living. I can sit by the sea and watch families playing and couples strolling. I can watch buses of tourists line up to see ancient mosques and palaces. I can listen to various foreign languages or, in the summer, enjoy free entertainment in tourist zones. I can watch students heading off to class or old men going off to prayers. Women go about their business in headscarves or without.

I can snack all day. Cheap vendors sell everything you could want on the street from corn to roasted chestnuts to bread. I especially like cheese toast (basically a grilled cheese sandwich for a lira or two) which I can eat every single day at the cheap eateries. I can also find food from all over the world if I get sick of local cuisine and snacks.

Summer is warm and wonderful and winter was not so bad either. I love this city and want to share some snapshots. My husband and I had many romantic times in Turkey so it is always dear to my heart. I look forward to going back again!
