A girl in a beautiful palace…*Reality: Do not go around Istanbul on your own, they say. Well, I am on my own with this unexpected invite to spend a day here, so what am I supposed to just sit and do nothing? They take my tripod away, the place is swarming with tourists even though it is a Monday – well it is definitely worth it. Topkapi Palace will astound you with its mosaic beauty and stories it can tell…I give up long ago on any 'good shots', I just enjoy the experience – my first time in Turkey! I find this pretty room.. hundreds of people walk in an out, all the time. I ask the Turkish guard, in gesture language, for one shot.. He obliges, on my iphone – quick snap. Bad low resolution, the app cutting my frame too. Oh well, does it really matter? Or maybe what matters most is that I am wandering around this immense city, so unexpected and unplanned, thanks to an invite I was offered. So I stop and smile… and I admire..*TIP: Plan at least 2-3 hours for Topkapi palace, and either get the audio guide or a real human talking guide :) It's worth it! Do not expect 'insta shots'. Expect to be mesmerised and discover thousand stories… *****#traveltoturkey #visitturkey #travelphotography #damestravel #traveladdict #exploremore #istanbulturkey #topkapipalace#thetravellingfriends #sheisnotlost #teamkaptainkenny #grandbazaar #awesomepix #traveldeeper #tlpicks #artofvisuals #darlingescapes #travelingtheworld #turkey_home #voyaged #girlaroundworld#beautifulmatters #speechlessplaces #lovetheworld #beautifuldestinations #passionpassport #living_destinations #stayandwander #girlsdreamtravel #travelinladies
