I love how all your vacation pics always have pictures of cats! Haha, I am so the same way!
p.s. Your posts still aren’t showing up on Blog Lovin’. Just an FYI. I don’t know if that means it’s not showing up on other blog readers or what. I love the new layout though!

This is one of the places I wanted to go on my honeymoon. Wasn’t able to afford it so hopefully I will make it sometime in the future.

It’s so funny that you have a picture of graffiti made by some Polish guy:) Greetings from Poland!

I have plans to visit the families of a friend this summer in Turkey. The idea is that I’ll travel around and his family who live all over the country will take me in, teach me how to cook, and send me along my way. What can I not miss in your opinion?

Melinda May 10, 2010

Great pics. I hope to get there some day, but hopefully not stationed there. I do know many people who were stationed in Turkey and I think most of them enjoyed it. I am hoping we get Spain or Italy next.

Istanbul is my dream trip. I took a university course on Byzantine history, and fell in love with it. Istanbul is so rich in history – Hagia Sophia, Bosporus Straight, Hippodrome of Constantinople, and Hagia Irene. One day I’ll get there, I know I will.

I’m loving your travel series. If you could go back to spend more time in one city you visited during your honeymoon, which would it be?

Reply

Wei-Wei May 10, 2010

Loving the beautiful photos! :D The “tourism police” cracked me up. And the graffiti is so cool, albeit the grammar a little poor (sorry, I’m a stickler for details!)

I love that Coca-Cola truck, by the way. So vintage! ;)

These pictures are AMAZING! I recently discovered your blog, and think it is fantastic. Quick question, how tall are you? Just checking, because your husband looks so tall in comparison haha!

Ahh, Istanbul!! So beautiful. My dad is 100% Turkish (grew up there) and I FINALLY got to visit in 2007. I really think that this is one of the most amazing cities in the entire world. The blending of East and West, modernism and deeply rooted history… I want to go back. Or live there… reconnect with my heritage :)
