I Loved my Turkey adventure!!

Last week a client asked me which country I would recommend for their first abroad adventure and the first place that came to mind was Turkey. It is the perfect mix between European and Asian with its unique culture and magnificent buildings. Istanbul is one of the best cities to get lost in, to explore and to spend a couple of days getting to know the people and the culture.

While helping my client plan her amazing Turkey adventure I couldn’t help but wish that I was planning this adventure for myself as I could picture all the places I was mentioning and recommending to her.

I would love to explore Istanbul again!

Going through my Turkey photos again I couldn’t wait to share them and my wonderful Turkey adventure with everyone.

I spent a couple of days wondering the streets of Istanbul and found some of the most beautiful views over the Bosphorus at the Home of the Ottoman sultans. Topkapi Palace  was the heart of the vast Ottoman Empire for nearly 400 years and from here the Sultan had some of the most amazing views over his empire.

The pavilion of the Palace has a terrace overlooking the Sea of Marmara, built at the top of a cliff and it is here that I spent my afternoon enjoying the magnificent views over the Sea of Marmara, Bosphorus and the Golden Horn.

  1. Great pics! I’m back from Istanbul for just a week and I miss it already so I’ll be writing about it as well, from a different perspective. It’s a beautiful city and Turkey is a fascinating country

  2. I most definitely agree with you – I’ve now been to Turkey twice and will probably never tire of the country. It is amazing and Istanbul itself is a fantastic city for the newbie and veteran traveler.
