I'm dangerously close to visual overload just from your post! What an exciting destination! I'm looking forward to some more show and tell.

Wonderful photos. My husband & daughter went there as part of a Turkey & Greece holiday in 2011. (I went to the USA on a quilting trip) They loved Turkey, and when they returned home, my husband kept telling me I would have loved the bazaars and how stunning the Blue Mosque is.

Oh. My. Gosh. You've singlehandedly changed my mind. WOW. What beautiful photos. And what a trip! I can't wait to hear more. And did you stop anywhere else on the way over/back? It seems like such a quick trip! Beautiful!!!
