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.
And on to a few images of the Blue Mosque…
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.)
Hooray for travel archives! I love reliving travel adventures, such fun!
