We're back from Istanbul! (well actually we got back on Monday but I've been pretty much sleeping/working since) 

It was such an amazing trip and I genuinely just want to go back and stay for an extra week! Thanks for Ivan for organizing it for us all it was so worth it :) It was great being out every day, and out the door by 9.30 latest, I've seen Mosques, been on a boat trip along the Bosphorus, shopped in the Grand Bazaar and seen the Whirling Dervishes. 

And when I say I've seen the whirling dervishes, I mean I fell asleep during the performance, oops. But no fear, I did open my eyes JUST long enough to see them spinning. 

And I am now obsessed with Apple tea and can't stop saying "Hello pretty lady" in a really bad Turkish accent ALL the time :) Also so nice to get to know people better and I love youuuuuu all! Here's a couple photos from the trip!

my suitcase before it was scattered about several rooms

 Grand Bazaar before I stopped taking photos because creepy men kept getting in my way.
