Time to explore more on the day 2 as we walk more on the Sultanahment Square, next stop: The Blue Mosque.
On our way to the Blue Mosque
The Sultan Ahmed Mosque is another historic mosque in Istanbul. More popularly known as the Blue Mosque for the blue tiles adorning the walls of its interior, it faces the Hagia Sofia and part of the history rich Sultanahmet Square.
It was March 2013. In the sunny of end of winter time in Istanbul, I decided to enjoy the beauty of Bosphorus Strait. I hopped on the fery boat in the morning, get the cruise and enjoyed the amazing view. You're most welcome to enjoy, one day in Bosphorus.

Today I started with my scrapbook about Istanbul. I was so caught up in it, I almost forgot blogging about my last day! But, here it is.
The last day, was a 'a bit of everything'-day. We visited the Grand Bazaar again, did some walking and bought many things (since they pay in Turkish Liras, that money needed to go hehe).
My stories have fallen way behind my reality so I am going to jump forward closer to the present and pick up my journey at my return to Istanbul. There are still three more stories from Jordan but you will have to buy the forthcoming book if you want to read them (or wait until I post them at some random future date).
In the midst of the freezing winter wind we walk down a quiet neighborhood of Fatih, a complete opposite of the tourist-overrun district of Sultanahmet. My hands are numb and for the first time in Istanbul I regret for not bringing the gloves. We follow our instincts to reach the Chora Church – a former Byzantine church now turned into a museum – which is one of the main reasons for visitors to come to this less posh corner of Istanbul.
If you don't have a dream or two or three, please hurry up and get one, have one, and/or make one up. I dreamed of doing something fun and different with my husband, and it changed my life dramatically. I was dreaming that we could do something together, and shazam! Welcome to Istanbul! How did I get here?
I didn't exactly dream of going to Istanbul one day, but I was seeking excitement and something new to learn and experience together besides housework, homework, and take-home-work.
looks like a beautiful year to attend the Gallipoli dawn service... Hope to see some of you patriots there! Not every day i get to book a flight to Istanbul... Feeling my true Australian spirit shining bright!
Igår var det ett alldeles fantastiskt väder här i Istanbul och jag och Serkan hade bestämt oss för att njuta utav detta underbara väder ute på en utav prinsöarna, närmare bestämt Heybeliada.
Heybeliada är den näst största utav prinsörarna och precis som på Büyükada kan man även här åka runt ön med häst och vagn om man så önskar.
Vi skippade dock vagnturen och tog en promenad istället.
Berawal sebagai gereja lalu Masjid dan sekarang berfungsi menjadi museum, Hagia Sophia (Aya Sofya) adalah simbol utama bagi kota Istanbul. Hagia Sophia dibangun oleh Eastern Roman Emperor Justinian I pada 537 M. Masa pemerintahan Eastern Roman Emperor Justinian I adalah masa kejayaan Romawi. Desain Byzantium pada Hagia Sophia adalah yang terbaik dan menjadi gereja terbesar di dunia selama hampir 1,000 tahun.
I hadn't realized until my biggest fan,aka my mother emailed 'where are your new wordpress posts?' that i hadn't posted in nearly a month!!! This is due to a number of factors stated above- Work, i had a big 3 week retail design project based at Buyukada- the big one of Princes islands. However this has finished- and now moved onto our Ferikoy waterpump station project, in which we design it into something for the community.
I mentioned about this wonderful group Zarmalouloux in the first post. Between 24th and 28th of June, I was with them travelling from İstanbul to Tekirdağ while they were pedalling for France. Before saying anything about this trip, I want to introduce them. Who are they? How did I end up to meet them and how on earth did they touch my life this much?
I was on holidays for about 30 days. I left Dhaka on 5th February. On our way to New York, we spent three nights in Istanbul, Turkey.
I have not been able to sort out all the travel photographs. I intent to post some of them when I can.
During your trip in Istanbul you can't miss the flavors of the delicious Turkish cuisine.
Turkish cuisine is one of the most diverse cuisine in the world.
Unfortunately for the Turks, the Turkish gastronomy always suffers from a lack of international recognition. A non-Turkish would often limited it to the "Doner Kebabs".
Turkey is at crossroads between Europe, Central Asia and the Middle East and the migrations of the Turks over the centuries from Central Asia to Europe gave the Turkish cuisine a very unique Identity.
The two most famous sights in Istanbul are the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sophia, one active, the other a museum.
When entering an active mosque, you must take off your shoes. Even as a tourist. At the touristic places you get nylon bags to carry your shows on you or, alternatively, you leave them in pigeon holes outside.
The local name of this mosque is Sultan Ahmet but the Westerners, charmed by the traditional blue tile enterior, refer to it as the Blue Mosque.
