The love birds of Istanbul

Originally published on my previous blog on Nov 21, 2013.

We have spent a great weekend in Istanbul this November 🙂 Istanbul (and Turkey at large) has always been a very special destination for us since our honeymoon in 2006. But…,

  • We’ve lived more of the city experience as we did book everything by ourselves; no travel agents, no tour guides! cool 🙂 We get lost in Istanbul and reached untrodden places — Thanks to Google Maps 🙂
  • For Princes’ Islands, we decided to go to Heybeliada -instead of Büyükada– as woods and natural life there is amazing! Cycling around the island was fun as well 🙂
  • Turkish Kanafeh was not delicious as Nabulsi one 😉 but it’s good to try!
  • Fishing over the bridge was a wow experience for first timer like us 🙂 (check the gallery)
  • Fish Sandwich was more than delicious, extra pepper and salad would make it yummy! (check the gallery hereunder)
  • Donor (Shawerma) and Turkish Kabap (or kabab) are highly recommended (check the restaurants we’ve tried on the Foursquare list)
  • Our favorite hot drinks were Sahlep and Gingerbread Latté(Starbuck winter’ special)

You can find our list on Foursquare as reference to try the same places and have fun 🙂

Photos were taken by iPhone 5 and HTC One) I used Pebble Snap as remote control to trigger the camera app 🙂
