Tulips and More Tulips
Istanbul has been covered in 20 million tulips from Sultanahmet to Emirgan Park. Spring in Istanbul
is a beautiful and somewhat spiritual time in Turkey's largest city. I had the pleasure of an early evening picnic in Emirgan Park surrounded by tulips of varying sizes, shapes, colors and stages of life. The festival opens every year in early April and I highly suggest putting the flowery pilgrimage on your bucket list.
