Asmalı Mescit Mahallesi, İstiklal Cd. No:192, 34430 Beyoğlu/İstanbul, Turkey
We stumbled upon a small nargile shop on the outskirts of the grand bazzaar. This place seemed so authentic, even though it was in the grand bazzaar and everything is overpriced there. Like everything in Turkiye, especially Istanbul, bargain hard....

Kapadokya is one of the most strange and interesting places on Earth. Famous for UFO sightings, ferry chimneys, underground cities, and much much more, this is one of the strange and interesting unique sights from Kapadokya. I went to Goreme with...

Cankurtaran Mh., Seyit Hasan Sk. No:12, 34110 Fatih/İstanbul, Turkey
Living in Turkiye you definitely get to know "the bread man," as my roommates and I called him. Every morning the "bread man" carries his bread to sell up and down your street, early in the morning, yelling "ETMEK!" the Turkish word for bread....

Antalya, Turkey
Turkey is such a nationalistic and proud country. It's quite impressive. You don't exactly see Americans hanging pictures of George Washington everywhere during 4th of July, but in Turkiye everyone hangs Ataturk flags and various swag for the...

Antalya, Turkey
What gorgeous weather....especially in comparison to the cold and smoggy Ankara in winter. You have to love the Mediteranean.... even if this is a very touristie European resort town...

No:, Binbirdirek Mh., İmran Öktem Cd., 34440 Fatih/İstanbul, Turkey
I'm still not sure who actually wears these, but they are beautiful.

Istanbul, Turkey
One morning outside Sultanahmet I saw what I believe to be a suffi. He looked somewhat like a Turkish version of Santa Claus (which was odd because it was late December), but I don't really know what else he would be with that beard.

Şirince, Şirince Mahallesi, 35920 Selçuk/İzmir, Turkey
Sirince is famous for its fruit wine. It is located near the major city of Izmir in Northern Turkiye, but also near Efes (Ephesus) and Selcuk, both of which have ruins. The fruit wine in Sirince is excellent, and everyone is very friendly. Be...

Antalya, Turkey
My roommates and I traveled to the Southern resort town of Antalya for the national holiday in October that celebrates the republic of Turkiye and everything that Ataturk has done for Turkiye and its people. The energy of this holiday was...

Selimiye Mahallesi, 34668 Üsküdar/Istanbul, Turkey
This picture was taken outside of Goreme near one of the underground cities. My roommates and I went to one of the famous underground cities, but we were not that impressed. It was overcrowded with hordes of foreign tourist groups. It felt so...

Gedikpaşa Cad. No: 24/1 Beyazıt Fatih, Mimar Hayrettin Mahallesi, 34126 Fatih/İstanbul, Turkey
Turkiye has the most beautiful embroidery, and such gorgeous shoes.... I honestly don't believe anyone in Turkiye who is a real Turk wears these shoes though, other than maybe for some very rare and unusual occasion, but they are very beautiful.

Beyazıt Mh., 34126 Fatih/İstanbul, Turkey
Soon after conquering Constantinople and defeating the Byzantines in 1453, Ottoman Sultan Mehmet II commissioned the beginnings of the Grand Bazaar to reinvigorate trade with the city. More than 550 years later, the bazaar is one of the oldest...

Antalya, Turkey
One thing I will definitely miss about Turkiye is Turkish breakfast. Although this is meager in comparison (it's from my cheap hostel), Turkish breakfast is one of the best things! It typicallyc onsists of bread, tomato, cucumbers, tomatos, many...

Sultan Ahmet Mahallesi, Ayasofya Meydanı, 34122 Fatih/İstanbul, Turkey
Walk into Hagia Sophia (Aya Sofya) and look up to the heavens to see why so many conquerors and their respective religions claimed this basilica turned mosque turned museum as their own. Visitors will swoon over the Byzantine gilded mosaics,...

Edebiyat Sk., 34762 İstanbul, Turkey
I was lucky enough to get to be with a real Turkish family during the Muslim holiday of Kurban Bayram, also known as Eid Al Adha. This is the holiday where people sacrifice an animal in the name of God, in honor of Abraham's willingness to...
