Sometimes, traveling is more about people than places, and I fell in love with Istanbul long before I arrived in Turkey.
I was first introduced to the warmth and the generosity of the Turkish people while living in Frankfurt, Germany, also known as “little Istanbul”, and I’d always heard from travelers returning from Turkey that you arrive in Turkey as a guest and leave as a friend.
My experience in Istanbul was no different. Everywhere I went, I was overwhelmed by the hospitality and the generosity of just about everyone I’d come across, and needless to say, I had a wonderful time in Istanbul, an amazing city full of extraordinary history and culture, breathtaking scenery, and excellent cuisine.
So, teşekkür ederim ... thank you Istanbul for an unforgettable trip.
