Hi Natalie! Had to read this one because it looks like we’ll be coming this Istanbul in October/November. We’re not usually fans of big cities (14 Million is a lot) but I’m very curious about Istanbul.
We’re leaving for our 2nd year of full time travel next week and will use Budapest as a base for several months. Then will slowly work our way south through Romania and Bulgaria to Istanbul and most likely plan a few weeks vacation in other parts of Turkey.
So don’t be surprised to see me spending a lot of time on your blog 🙂
"For years I had been a "junkie"--addicted to prescription and over the counter drugs. used oral and topical anti-inflammatory corticosteroids for 9 years to suppress my eczema/psoriasis. The steroids' side effect nearly killed me and did nothing to cure my eczema. Why elimination or suppression of the symptom is NOT the same as elimination of the disease . The side effects caused me to swell-up like a balloon and triggered terrible mood swings from deep depression to nasty outburst our rages. Functioning of vital organs such as my liver, kidneys, lungs and spleen were nearly shut down and I thought I would die." Shirley
