Istanbul is different from most of the cities I visited traveling around the world. Different in a very personal sense because while it is generally my first time visiting any other place I have a long history with Istanbul. I don’t remember how many times I’ve been here before, more than once or twice, and of course, I collected a lot of memories and emotions connected with it.
Arriving in Istanbul now as a part of this trip around the world I felt very emotional like coming back to a very special and dear place, somewhat like coming back home. Walking again the same streets and landmarks I have known since many years, recognizing familiar things and being astonished with some changes, turned it into one of the highlights of my whole trip.
And still I ended up with a question to myself – what is it that attracts me so much to Istanbul? I decided not to be in a hurry and take my time to find honest answers. I don’t want to sound pathetic or boring therefore I am still taking my time : ) Of course, I will get back with the results.
And it was great to catch up with old friends whom I’ve known since that past life! Burak Ceylan, we haven’t seen each other for 8 years and there was a lot to catch up with now. Thank you for hosting me and talking care of me! I hope next time we’ll see each other sooner than after 8 years : )
Istanbul will never change its place in my life, it’ll always be on the top no matter what happens.
