I was absolutley thrilled to see this as Istanbul is one of my favorite cities to visit. I could easily spend a week in Istanbul – with a full day in the Grand Bazaar and another full day in the Spice Market. Oh yes and of course a visit to the Fish Market is a must.
Turkey has unbelievable architecture. Hagia Sofia is a perfect example. She is so seeped in ancient history and religion. You can see her from far distances, she is so Grand. She was originally built as a church and almost overnight was converted to a Mosque. Today she is a Museum. I love to visit her. It takes my breath away every time I come. This building is iconic to Istanbul
But let's not forget about the rest of Turkey. There is so much to see -- Cappadocia, Antalya, Bodrum, Izmir, Ephesus, and so much more. It is an amazing country with so much to discover.
