Have you ever seen wallpapers of picturesque beautiful cities on your desktop or mobile phone and wondered wish I could travel and see such places with my own two eyes? Well, recently I travelled to one such place called Istanbul. It was every bit like the pictures I seen and I was astonished by the beauty of this marvellous city.

This city has been ruled by different empires across thousands of years, first by the Greeks, then the Romans and later the Ottomans. Once known as the infamous Constantinople, this city was loved by kings, commoners and travellers alike. Nearly 2000 years later it still retains the cultural influences of all the empires that once ruled here. The city is as marvellous today as it was almost 2000 years ago while it served as the capital city of the Eastern Roman/Byzantine Empire and later the Ottoman empire.

During my stay in Istanbul, I was in awe of pretty much everything I came across whether it was the magnificent historical sites, the cobbled streets, the delicious food or even the hospitality of the Turkish people.  Now I can go for hours at a stretch talking about Istanbul but let me talk about a few points on why I feel Istanbul is a place you should definitely visit.

While wedding festivities can be as grand as they can be, planning and executing them is another story altogether.

Being Catholics, our wedding reception after the nuptials is a mix of various events happening. However, the most special one being the couple’s first dance as husband and wife. The song selected for the first dance is not any random popular song but is something that is close to the couple. It’s the song that speaks about them and their love.

If you know about the TV series “Flash” you would definitely remember the song “Running Home to you”, this was the song we selected for our first dance. This is not a very popular song and very few people have heard about it but it is a very meaningful one. Now if you listen to it, you’ll know this is not a very easy song to dance on and extremely difficult to choreograph by yourself.

I and my husband love to dance, we are fairly good at freestyle dancing but when it comes to ballroom dancing, we were plain simple amateurs.  Mr. Husband the perfectionist that he is, suggested we take ballroom dance lessons. Some of our friends who had learnt Ballroom dancing suggested we enrol ourselves at Conrad Coelho’s Dance Company for the Beginner’s class as it is one of the most popular dance academies in town.

Life is like a book, it goes on and on until you reach its end. As we age, we not only grow but become smarter and wiser.

At every stage in life, our goals keep changing depending on our needs, wants and desires. At some point in our life, our dream of owning a house becomes our goal.

While almost everyone dreams to own a house, it is an absolute joy when we can convert that house into our home.
