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.

Lisa Ling said “The best education I received was through travel” How true is this statement, as we don’t know what life’s worth unless we have travelled.

What’s the use of saving and hoarding all the money we have earned if we don’t spend it on exploring the beautiful world created by God?

His works are so marvellous that even our expensive and technologically advanced gadgets fail to capture the same what our eyes capture that leaves a lasting effect on us.
