Images of Istanbul ♥

I am back from Istanbul Turkey....well it's been like 5 weeks since I have returned to be honest. It has been a busy 5 weeks and I literally forgot to even publish this. But it's ready take a look at some of my snaps from Istanbul. 

Browsing around the Arasta Bazaar near the blue mosque. If you're looking for quiet and peaceful shopping then this is the place to go. 

Ayasofya is like an old church that has been turned in to a museum. I found it really interesting because you can see paintings of Jesus and Islamic art right next to it. So you can see two different religions displayed in this building. 

What is the number one food to try in Istanbul? Kebab of course! no not the doner kebab that you can find all over Europe. Try the other types of local kebab dishes (the one in this picture was called adana kofte) 

The infamous blue mosque. They will give you a headscarf and an appropriate "cover up" to wear for free. The outside was beautiful but the inside was disappointing because tourists only get to see one small empty area. 

Eminou pier is so beautiful, and I would definitely recommend it as a place to get some fresh air. Don't forget to try the fresh fish sandwich. You can see local old men fishing in front of you, and the stall will cook the fish in front of you. I heard some tourists speaking English and pounced on them with the "hey could you please take a photo for me?". 

So Turkish people are known for their hospitality. This restaurant gave me some free baklava after my meal. 

Posing outside Ayasofya. The colour of the building matches my dress!

A random photo of a shop selling Turkish delight. I brought back a box that tasted like a mix of coffee, nuts, and vanilla.
