Memories of Istanbul

This time last year, I was roaming the streets of Istanbul. I can’t believe that it’s been a year already! I still remember it like it was just yesterday. The trip was definitely the highlight of 2013 for me.

Here’s a Flashback Friday post for you:

While the rest of the group toured Topkapi Palace, Grace (Sandier Pastures) and I were lucky to find this place overlooking the Bosporus. I could just sit here and do … nothing 😀

If given an opportunity to go back, I would love to visit Hagia Sofia again because we were not able to stay for long inside and there were some restoration going on. Another place I want to see is the Basilica Cistern

I’ve been wanting to go back because I want to explore some more. Someday. Soon. But for now, I’m happy reading my old posts:

And as a bonus, here’s a link to our video (I still squirm whenever I see this. I was so nervous filming the interview! ha ha). 
By the way, I also made a post on how to get Turkish visa for Filipinos in Dubai. Enjoy!!
