Adhan – The Call to Prayer || Little Things I Love About

It’s probably one of the most beautiful things I have heard. I first heard it when I was walking in Istanbul. Suddenly the Call to Prayer, or Adhan, came through speakers from all over and it literally stopped me in my steps. I will always remember that. (Click the photo...

SİYAH ZEYTİN EZMESİ || Little Things I Love About Series

SİYAH ZEYTİN EZMESİ. Or Turkish Olive Paste. 🙂 I remember when I first tried it at breakfast in Istanbul, I was like, OH MY WORD, what is this goodness!?!? It wasn’t until my 4th visit that I finally got my act together and brought a few jars home with me to enjoy on...

Home cooked village meal, yes please! || Turkish Real Travel Experience

Istanbul. What an INCREDIBLE city. I have spent a considerable amount of time there, although it’s never enough. With 4 trips there in the last 4 years, I have many places still on my list to discover in Istanbul. But one place that never disappoints is the Galata District....

Follow Your Heart to Turkey by Shyamala || Guest Review

I had first met Shyamala via email, her inquiring about an upcoming Turkey Travel Experience I had planned. We then met at a Starbucks with a number of others interested, but it was evident she was the spear head of this meeting. Being a firstborn myself, I already liked her. 🙂...

I value my guests feedback about our Travel Experiences. It always gives me a chance to reflect on the trip with their suggestions, their feedback and their love for the trip. Tanya was no different – well she was actually – she was also my roommate through our last...
