This trip was not expected, not planned. But it is definitely most welcomed.
Istanbul is not even part of my bucket list, and I’m kicking myself for not including it. (I will add it now and then cross it off, that’s ok, right?) I was asked, “what’s the highlight of your year?” — I said, “My Istanbul trip, hands down!”
Here’s a short video of us in Istanbul. Please excuse the dorkiness. (I have stage fright. I freak out whenever I am in front of a camera or in front of a large audience.)
