Short trip to Istanbul








After 6 months, i am gonna enjoy being in Istanbul again!!!! Yesss ladies and gentleman, i am flying to Istanbul tomorrow and i will be there for 1 week.
Istanbul... What a beautiful city... Before i came to Northwich, i could never imagine that i'd miss her so much. I missed everything; people, streets, crowd of Taksim Square which welcomes all kind of people, Bosphorous...Hahaha maybe you won't believe but i even miss the traffic jam in Istanbul.
I already planned many things with my friends. Eating doner-kebab, playing backgammon, going for a coffee in Gloria Jeans', sitting in the Bosphorous and watching the sea, feeding the birds from the boat on my way from European to Asian side, finding a fortuneteller and become curious about what he's gonna say ( Yes in Istanbul wherever you step, you can come across one, believe me!!!).
And my family...I have never been far away from my family so long and i never cried for it before. But when you change the country you live i understood that it's so hard to stand being without them. Ok Joerg did everything to make me comfort here and he's taking care of me quite well but nothing can be compare with family, right? Sleeping in my bed, cuddling with my little brother, going for a drink and watching football match with my dad and elder brother, asking my mum to cook for my favourite dish...I can't wait until tomorrow guys!!!
By the way, i am going alone. Don't misunderstand, there's nothing bad going on between me and my husband. It's only because he doesn't have the opportunity to get any vacation even for 1 week because he's quite busy with his work. But there's no reason for me not to go eh? :) As i haven't applied for a job (i am planning to work as 'teaching assistant' in a primary school after i'm back from Istanbul) at least i am free to see my family and friends and my beloved city Istanbul :)) I am gonna be back on next Saturday. Oh i can hear my hubby already crying :))

Take care guys

Hugssss

Wow. Very pretty. I had no idea Istanbul looked that nice.

And there's nothing wrong w/ taking a solo vacation. Everyone needs their space from time to time. ;-)

Wow, those photos are just beautiful! When my Turkish housemate told me that Istanbul is the most beautiful city in the world, I just nodded politely, but having seen these pictures it seems that he just might be right!

Burcu είπε...

@Bitter Chocolate : I have to say that your housemate is definetly right. But to understand it, you need to visit Istanbul at least once :)
Thanks for dropping by, it was nice to see you in our blog.
