Awakening the Senses – Unique and Wonderful Istanbul

We have never heard about thing about Istanbul, or about Turkey for that matter, and our first day here today has proved why.

I know I haven’t been to many countries but as soon as we arrived, even being at their bus stop which is bigger than my suburb, you could feel that there was something different and special about this place.

Just walking around today we have seen so many wonderful sights that bring tourists here by the hoards but we have also seen every day things that have just amazed us and made us wide eyed and amazed at everything.

I feel as though Istanbul is going to amaze us every day we are here and tonight on our walk home as we listened to all the mosques cry out their call to prayer, in their mystifying and beautiful voices, this was confirmed and I am very excited to see what Turkey has to offer!
