For what I had decided to see today, I didn't make the half of it. A fascination has begun. Tomorrow is a new day.
... br> Enough about our sappy inner dialogues though and let’s talk about some travel fun.
As we had heard Istanbul was a wonderful city, we decided to park there for a few nights and soak it in. Rather than pack in a ton of adventures like we tend to, we decided to simply just let the days play themselves out. We got lost in the Grand Bazaar (and probably ripped off with fake watches and other **** we bought), visited a few of the ...
