It is almost October and I am still reminiscing about my glorious summer. I forbid myself to look at the pictures until at least a month had passed since I didn’t want to develop an obsession with what were probably the happiest days I’ve had in a really long time. During the summer I visited several parts of Turkey, including what would become my favourite city in the world so far: Istanbul.
Poised between Europe and Asia, the modern and the ancient, secular elitism and Islam. Istanbul is not only filled with history and cultural places to see but its young population make it a very appealing destination for those like me, who are interested in fashion, nightlife and good food. Here are some snapshots of my visit along with some other pictures of Turkey.
