Cinderella's Castle

... since it served as the inspiration for Cinderella's castle in Walt Disney World. Surprisingly, there are no photos or paintings inside the religious mosque because Islams do not believe in worshiping an idol. Instead, over 20,000 blue tiles line the walls with both Islam and Turkish calligraphy. Gorgeous. The mosque is still used today during call of prayer (5 times a day) which can be heard throughout the area via the speaker ...

Day 175 - A Surprise Meeting

A travel blog entry by costin on Mar 24, 2014

... to buy the blue one it wouldn't be left on the ground but hung up on the wall...no one's walkin' on that sucker! We made our way to the SeaBus (ferry) to catch a 5.45pm boat to Bursa and to meet our first host family. This will take just on 2hrs to complete. 2hrs later..... Arrive at Bursa at approx. 7.45pm and are met by Aziz and his son, Emrah. We drove about 20mins to their home where I met Aziz's wife, Nur. They have 2 daughters but neither live at home. They live on a 3 acre ...
