Travel Pictures – Istanbul

Saturday, January 2nd, 2016

So here I am at the airport with my children and luggage in tow. My head is spinning and my eyes hurt from not enough sleep last night.

It has been an amazing 10 days and I have no words to describe how much this country has touched my soul. A big piece of my heart will remain here in the friendships I’ve made, the streets I’ve walked on, the places I visited and I know I will always yearn to return to this corner of the earth.

I’m going to keep this short as sometimes you just want to enjoy certain feelings without having to explain them in great detail. I’ll come back again, Istanbul. And insha Allah that will be sooner rather than later. There are still so many places untouched, many sites unvisited and too many words unspoken. And here’s a link to my Istanbul photos and videos:


Excuse some of the blurry captures, probably taken when my hands were shivering because of the cold! Not to mention all of the photos were taken on my mobile phone instead of a proper camera. The videos of the weaver repairing my kilim is there too.
