Travel Tuesday: Turkey Wanderlust

1a046049e66dd95e56978a1c002f280eLet’s talk about Turkey – no, not the kind you likely overate last week. Today’s Travel Tuesday post is about the country of Turkey, a majestic republic bordered by the Black, Aegean, & Mediterranean Seas.

Rich in beauty steeped in history, this colorful country has been a long-established keystone of global trade, power & politics. Modern day Turkey is no different, serving as an irreplaceable bridge between East and West, the old world and the new.

Going to Turkey – Istanbul in particular – has always been on my bucket list. I’ve had many dreams lately about stepping foot in this place, an alluring mix of cultures, languages, cuisines and histories.

When I find out a good friend of mine is hopefully (fingers crossed!) studying abroad in Istanbul next semester, I was almost more excited than she was. Which naturally translated into many hours spent pouring over Pinterest in anticipation of a visit.

The architecture, the art, the churches and mosques – oh my! And the FOOD. Don’t even get me started about the food. (Turkish coffee, falafel and baklava for one, please!)

If any of you guys have ever been to Turkey, I would absolutely love any advice/must-sees! For the rest of you, here’s a little wanderlust for the week 🙂
