My trip to Istanbul

My amazing trip to the beautiful city Istanbul, Turkey. I travelled around the Ottoman Empire, and visited many mosques and awesome palaces. The Turkish food was delicious, and the art was beautiful. The culture was very interesting, and I loved the clothes everyone was wearing. I would love to go back some time.

I just arrived in Istanbul after sailing for more than two weeks. It is 8 o'clock in the evening right now, and this is the view I have from my boat. I have only been here for less than an hour, but I am already in love with this city. I can't wait for tomorrow!
