Turkish Breakfast: Van Kahvaltı Evi

A beautiful Turkish breakfast at Van Kahvalti Evi followed by fresh pomegranate juice in Cihangir. I’m still ever so in love with Istanbul.

My magical Istanbul

Despite being in Istanbul for the huge riots this weekend, I had a wonderful time. I was staying with my friend Emily who made me a welcome frozen cheesecake to welcome me. The weekend was filled with Turkish coffee, baklava, dürüm, sun and good company.

Will be back in Istanbul in 12 weeks and already cannot wait. I feel at home in Istanbul. What about Istanbul attracts you the most?
