Travel Archives: Istanbul

Greetings lovelies!  Today I want to share with you one of my favorite travel archives from my visit to Istanbul, Turkey during the spring of 2007.   I was inspired to write about Istanbul after watching the movie Argo.  If you’ve seen the film, you may remember the scene when Ben Affleck is in a mosque discussing visa options for entering Iran.  That scene was filmed at both the Hagia Sophia and the Blue Mosque, both of which I was able to see during my day out in Istanbul.

Here are some snapshots of Hagia Sophia, a stunning mosque that has been sitting on the same site for over 1,000 years.

I am in love with this light fixture. The shape, the scale. Amazing.

And of course, I have to include one pic where I was carefully holding the camera and saying cheese.  (Oh yeah… and I love those way too big sunglasses.)
