My City Break: Istanbul in pictures!

Hey hey!

Last week the Mr decided to take me away for a couple days to none other than Istanbul. I have been pining to go away for a while now.

When I got there, it was cold & wet. But it didn't really bother me (okay, I did moan... a bit) as there was so much to do and see :D

So anyway, I've decided that I'd like to share some of my holiday snaps with you guys. In a space of 2 days, I took around 350-400 pictures. Yes, I am most definitely snap happy. :)

Sticking my finger in the "weeping" column. Apparently it will heal you? And if you manage to rotate 360 with your thumb inside, you will be granted one wish. I never managed to do it :(

Inside the Hagia Sophia. An absolute stunning view from the upper gallery.

After a hard day of sight seeing. :)

Overall, it was a great city break. I think it's good to get away just for a weekend, it is refreshing and you don't feel quite so jet lagged.

I usually travel to the middle east or onwards. So Istanbul was different. It felt very European, but also didn't lose it's sense of arabian charm, especially with all the carpet shops, mosques, the history and strong coffee. Also, I noticed that they call their kebabs, kebaps. Which I found hilarious. Oh, it really is the little things. :)

Now that I'm back, I'm already planning my next getaway. I'm thinking Abu Dhabi for the Grand Prix in November. I'm not really into the Grand Prix, but the boy is. I'm just interested in the shopping (Yes, I'm talking about you MUFE!). So it's win win all round! :)

Have any of you guys been away lately? Planning any holidays? Do let me let me know 'cause I'm just too nosey :P
