Living In Istanbul

August 2012 – July 2013

Istanbul in the Wintertime

Since there are less tourists in the wintertime, it’s a great time to view the sites. I’ve had coffee near the Galata tower, explored Ayasofya (Hagia Sophia) and the Basilica Cistern, sat and sketched the Rumeli Fortress, cooked delicious food at a Turkish cooking class, and still had time to karaoke with friends. The Basilica Cistern is at the top of my list of favorite tourist places– it’s a must-see if you come to Istanbul! As far as relaxing goes, I really enjoyed the few times I’ve been to the Bebek area where the Rumeli Fortress and Sakıp Sabancı Museum is located.

I’m going to keep trying to check experiences off my daydream list!
