Alchemy of Art&Travel #Istanbul

Istanbul Travel Diaries

The distinctive alchemy of Art, Travel & Architecture has always been a huge inspiration for me, and I found all three in The Old City of Istanbul ♡ I am no stranger to the magnetic pull of the city having sampled most of its delights in the past. When I walked the cobbled streets and beheld the pleasant smiles, I was struck by the dreaminess of the place.

Travel Tip
The Bosphorus cruise is one of the best ways to see Istanbul in its full glory, from the peaks of Sultanahmet’s tourist sites, to the famous Ottoman waterfront mansions.

To your wanderlust and dreams!

Yours in Style,

    I am yet to venture into the Middle east, and Turkey is def on my list. discovering the art and architecture of a country UNDOUBTEDLY expresses a part of culture and as someone who lives to CAPTURE the beauty through my PHOTOGRAPHY it’ s a must.

    • July 13, 2018 / 1:04 pm

      You will most certainly fall in love with Istanbul darling! It has a myriad of cultural influences from bygone eras… and the old city has some of the most facinating architecture I’ve seen ♥
