My trip to the beautiful Turkey "Istanbul"...

This is my first post about my trip to Turkey with my hubby... This vacation was soo exciting, we had an amazing time seeing the country, beautiful people, breathtaking views, mouth-watering dishes, uhhh and a lot more. Not only that, I even celebrated my birthday in a beautiful restaurant located in the most popular touristic area "Taksim Square"...

I thought I would share some pictures of the fantastic places we've seen, yummy dishes we ate, and more. Enjoy...

Turkey is mostly famous for its tea "├žay" pronounced "Chai", we have it after every meal, it's soo good... 


I bought this cute blue bowl and two small colorful ones. I use them as an accessory organizer...

The beautiful Taksim Square, it is a major shopping, touristic and leisure area known for its restaurants, shops and hotels. 

360 is a beautiful restaurant/ bar/ club that is situated in a top roof of a building in Taksim Beyoglu, it also has a breath-taking view of Istanbul... Me and my hubby celebrated my 25th birthday there, soo romantic and memorable. <3




This Chestnut kiosk is EVERYWHERE, literally everywhere... I loove it, it's soo warm and delicious...


Oh my Lord, this Kunaffa is AMAZIIIING, it is served with a cream on top and a sprinkle of pistachio and Voillaaaa... We eat this delicious desert almost EVERYDAY... It is from a restaurant in Taksim Square called Saray, they also serve other types of desserts as well as some yummy dishes.





Typical Turkish breakfast, it consists of assorted  cheese, olives, honey and cream, Turkish yogurt, eggs, cucumbers,  Turkish sausage, breads, menmen -scrambled eggs with roasted tomatoes, peppers, and olive oil-, and much much more...



The Sultan Ahmed Mosque, a historical mosque in Istanbul. It is also known as the Blue Mosque for the blue tiles adorning the walls of its interior.







The Orient House restaurant, located at the very heart of the Old City in Istanbul, it offers all the traditional entertainment of Ottoman Sultans.




Some images of the delicious dishes that we had in a beautiful restaurant named Topaz
 

I really can't get over this succulent Kunnafa... 


Turkey was a very beautiful experience, we can't wait to go and explore more beautiful areas in Turkey soon...
Pin It!
