You're lucky to be there when it is not crowded. "Turquoise" means the color of the Turks. Gather as many ceramic tiles as you can and learn to be ceiling tile setters.

You should definitely walk from Karaköy up to Şişhane. Lovely place and on the way up you can visit the Galata Tower. You reach to İstiklal Street at the hill, which is a pretty important street in the city. And from there you can walk further down to Beşiktaş even, a district full of life even nights.

Enjoy Istanbul and Turkey guys ! As a Turkish citizen, I have been following you from Qatar where I'm currently working. Glad you decided to stay in Turkey. Rational decision and lots of places to explore anyway. Here are some tips for you for Istanbul. Tried to keep the list really short avoiding shops, restaurants and malls etc during this period. Make sure you take the boat to the Asian side and visit some of those places as well. And try some recommended taste of Turkish wine below.

Enjoyed this! I don’t know if it just that you have a great camera or is Istanbul so crisp and beautiful looking. It looks like no smog and clean air or is that temporary because of the pandemic.

So nice to see you out! Marianne, was it just me, or do you find Turkish men to be quite easy on the eyes? Just another reason to love Turkey!!
Much love and stay safe! ♥️😘

Chris: Oh, you still there!
Me: No plans of getting anywhere.

Why I have not stumble upon your channel earlier during everybody's lockdown? It could've been nice watching simultaneously.
