One of the questions I was asked during my “Ask Me Anything” session was by Casey who wanted to know where my favorite place I have traveled to. Which had me scrolling through the different travel memories, including two years of working on a cruise ship. At first I thought it would be a tricky question to answer, after visiting numerous cities across the globe, but then one city instantly came to my mind: Istanbul.
I had the chance to visit Istanbul in 2007 during one of my cruise ship contracts for one day. I will tell you, one day is not enough in this dynamic and interesting city. It was a juxtaposition between Roman and Ottoman buildings, blends of bright tiles, colorful spices in the market and details for the eyes to feast on. I was in love.
