Istanbul - The Heart Of Turkey

Filled with breathtaking mosques, grand bazaar's, freshly pomegranate juice. Istanbul is one of the most unassuming and humble cities that I had the opportunity of visiting during our Euro trip.

Istanbul is a cultural junction where Europe meets Asia, which is hard not to notice when you're walking down the city streets.

Here are a few shots of the awesome Istanbul, Turkey.
