Turkey : Officially, the Republic of Turkey is a transcontinental country in Eurasia, mainly in Anatolia in Western Asia, with a smaller portion on the Balkan peninsula in Southeast Europe. Turkey is a democratic, secular, unitary, parliamentary republic with a diverse cultural heritage.
I know a lot of you have been asking for images and updates on my recent visit to Istanbul so no need to wait longer – the posts/images are finally here. I have a number of friends and family that have travelled to Turkey this year, and it was truly a must on my bucket list.
I had the pleasure of visiting Istanbul for a week and while that may sound like a number of days to do things, it is most definitely not! Istanbul reminds me of a crossover between the modern landscapes of Dubai and the conservative culture of Malaysia. The beauty of the city lies in its unique geography as it is situated directly between Europe and Asia. I don’t wish to get into a History lesson but I do recommend doing some background research before visiting because you don’t want to regret not seeing every inch of this place.
I have to admit, I do regret not doing as much homework as I could have on the place, but all the activities that I did definitely happened the way it was meant to for a reason, and I wouldn’t change a thing. From the spice bazaars to the bosphorous sea, I experienced a vacation like no other.
SO instead of blabbing on I am going to leave you with the images and blog post, and your full discretion to select what you want to know about on just a few of my Istanbul adventures, so be sure to check it out!
