I’m not sure why, but I’m having a hard time writing about Istanbul. If I have to be perfectly honest, I think it’s a combination of several things. Such as (thanks for asking!) being scared I’m going to miss something, as well as trying to figure out how to cull down all my photos (I’m on my 3rd cull thus far and I still have over 75 pics!). And probably the biggest concern is being scared I’m not going to do it justice. You see, I think Istanbul is one of the most beautiful, most magical places I have ever been. I’m not sure why. I’ve been to beautiful and exotic places before, but none quite like this. At least for me. Perhaps there is some magical city out there for you, but for me it is the place formerly known as Constantinople.
So stick around and let me take you to my Istanbul.
