It’s been a month to the wedding and am slowly settling into the new life. I always do a monthly favorites post, but for March the best part was Turkey Honeymoon. It was such an amazing experience and I thought it would be a great idea to share my memories with y’all!
So here’s the first of hopefully a couple more parts of Turkey Adventures. We were in Istanbul and Cappadocia, and both have their own unique charm. Let’s begin with Day 1 in Istanbul.
Istanbul has something for everyone. Whether you’re a history geek, foodie, photography enthusiast, every corner is like a living museum. The people are so warm and welcoming, which totally adds to the overall travel experience.
After a lot of sightseeing it was time for a scrumptious lunch. Turkish delicacies and local food is so delishh! Hummus, the local bread, fresh pomegranate juice and orange juice, lots and lots of variety of cheese, local rice, and the highlight is meat. I had so much beef, it was so yummy.
Stuffed and happy after a great lunch, we were ready to explore the most iconic shopping destination of Istanbul – The Grand Bazaar.
The best way to travel is to take public transport. Cabs are easily available all around the city. And if you stay around central Istanbul – near Taksim Square, or Spice Bazaar area, you can easily walk around. Make sure to wear comfortable walking shoes, because most day tours would be walking tours.
Time runs so fast when you’re on vacation. Day 1 was fun and fulfilling. Beautiful places, yummy food, lots of shopping – what else can you ask for!
Come back to see all the excitement that we did on the rest of the trip! See you soon. Tesheque Aderim (Thank You) in Turkish……
