Istanbul is a trove of culinary delights. I won't soon forget a single bite.
We are off to Rome today to meet a friend who just arrived there ahead of us. There must be a word for this mix of happy anxious excited sad at leaving happy for going mood we experience whenever we leave a place we love for a place we've always wanted to visit.
My favorite way to get around this gorgeous city of #Istanbul is on a ferry. Something about being on the (extra) turquoise water makes my heart happy. ⚓️ #vapuring#istanbulmoments#istanbul 🇹🇷 🍬 To all my Turkish friends: Mutlu Bayramlar! 🍬
Everyone who's been to Istanbul knows it's beautiful whenever and however. But a full blown summer is finally here and all I want to do is just sit and watch it's beauty from day to night. It's not long before I start missing my first love. The roads are calling out to me; time to travel some more ☺️ ------------------------- Bilen bilir, İstanbul her mevsim güzel -e güzel yani sonuçta. Maşaallah. Ama dünden bu yana yaz tam geldi (galiba) ve İstanbul daha bir güzel oldu. Ancak çok kısa bir süre sonra ben İstanbul'u özleyen moduna geçeceğim. Kısacık da olsa yollara düşme vakti geldi de geçti bile. Dikkat edin de başınıza güneş geçmesin ☺️
I was really taken with much of the Hagia Sophia although I thought the admission price was a little dear. But I was especially taken with how the floors looked like they were melting from centuries of feet smoothing them out. The marble was just dripping around the doorways.
It was an amazing day. I can't believe how much we did today. Check my story for a highlight reel!
We took the ferry out of Istanbul to Princes islands. After a solid 100 minutes on the ferry and Istanbul still looked like this. Dense and urban and insanely massive. We've been told that the population here is 23 million, which puts Istanbul in the top 5 most populated cities on earth.
I'm a real sucker for modern art. Some amazing pieces at Istanbul Modern today. Could have spent many more hours here. Swipe for more and be sure to check out my story for a few more videos (and a boomerang of a cat). #visitistanbul#istanbul#visavistravel
