Breakfast on the terrace, couple from hotel across the street from our hotel. Little did I know when I was making my hotel reservation that we would be staying between the Blue Mosque and the Haghia Sophia. The hotel wasn't fancy, just very regular but expensive but the location was incredible. We could walk to all the major monuments. This was our first morning, we had just arrived the night before, night really isn't it, more like 1 in the morning. It was exhilarating, to be in Istanbul, Turkey. We've read and heard so much about and there we were, walking its streets....
View of the where the Golden Horn meets the Bosporus and the Marmara sea. What an incredible view from the breakfast terrace of our hotel.
View of the Haghia Sophia on the other side... It's just walking distance and presto magico.... we're at the doorstep of one of the world's most famous church, later a mosque, now a museum.
So for the next few months I'll take you on the same trip that we took. I pray that you too will find time and money to visit Turkey and especially Cappadocia.It's nothing you've ever seen in this world. It does have another worldly atmosphere to it.
