Another Trip to Istanbul

28 May

Again, last week I went to Istanbul, but that time accompanied with my husband. I wanted him to see how beautiful is Istanbul. We visited the touristical and historical sites of course and new ones too, for me. We stayed at Taksim square, walked along the Istiklal street many times, had dinner and lunches there. We visited Hagia Sophia, Blue Mosque, the amazing palace Dolmabahçe. The Spice Bazaar and Grand Bazaar. We crossed the Bosphorus to the Asian Side. We spent a couple of days in Sultanahmat… in restaurants, cafés, touring and shopping.

We took the ferry to the Prince’s Islands, reached the last, fourth one and stayed there a couple of hours, had some picnic-lunch by the sea. We rented bicycles and toured the calm, nice streets of the island.

We walked alot. Ate alot. Drank alot of turkish tea. Laughed alot and enjoyed our time . I won’t mind going back to Istanbul one more time. Life seems easy there, people, tourists everywhere, at anytime of the day, at noon or midnight, it’s the same. Whenever you feel down, you can just walk a little or take the tram, few minutes, and you’ll reach the sea. Have a cup of turkish tea and enjoy the sun, the blue sky, the blue sea, the amazing views. I’ll leave you with some pictures. Enjoy as I did.
