From 91 Days in Istanbul
Without question one of the world’s greatest cities, Istanbul was an amazing place to call home for 91 days. We were based in forward-looking Beyoğlu, near Taksim Square, but made an effort to get to know the entire city. An impossible task, to be sure — with 14 million people and 39 districts, there is no way to learn everything about Istanbul in such a short time. But it sure was fun to try. Fascinating history, delicious food, boisterous markets, world-class museums, and some of the most friendly people we’ve ever met, were just some of the most memorable facets of the city. Reading through our blog might not make you an expert on Istanbul, but hopefully our experiences can help enrich your own.
