Moody tones all the way from Istanbul.







Hello from sunny Istanbul! I visited this magical place on Saturday, mainly to get to see my girl Konstantina, but also to indulge in some yummy food and sweets. The city is even more overwhelming than I imagined; being the only one in the world that spans between two continents has its perks you see. One gets to experience the Middle Eastern culture in an otherwise European city, discover hidden treasures in every other corner and communicate with a very different, but so heart-warming and helpful crowd.

Myself, I got to do so many different things; from visiting a Hamam, to haggle for a piece of jewelry at the Grand Bazaar, to even cook traditional Turkish food (okay just one - menemen) with Konstantina. There's such tension and robustness in this hybrid culture, that is a challenge to experience.

And of course, besides bombarding my Instagram page with numerous photos, there's a full post coming next with all the magical photos I managed to shoot while there. I mean the city was basically screaming to be instagramed, so I couldn't help it.
