Between Two Worlds
We have arrived in Istanbul; an incredibly beautiful and majestic city. The large city walls and gates of what was before, and the modern landscape of what is are meshed together throughout the city. You have cobblestone streets alongside paved roads, buildings that are hundreds of years old and those that were built within the last twenty years. They all have come together, here in Istanbul, and it's a beautiful and captivating example of these two worlds combined here in Turkey. Most of the other cities and adventures have taken us to ancient sites, which sit nestled on the outside of what is now the modern cities.
The sites and landscape here in Istanbul is a beautiful reminder of what was, what is, and what will be. It truly is mesmerizing and today we get to explore so much more!
