Wow! What can I say? We’ve had a fantastic first full day in Istanbul. So much so it’s late snd I haven’t time to do more than post a couple of pictures with more details to follow…

Turkish Delight and other sweets available in the Grand Bazaar.
A loco preserved out side the former terminus of the Orient Express.

7th May update. Here’s a few more pictures.

I really like this one as its both surreal and a modernistic twist on an ancient building. I took this in one of the jewel rooms of the Topkapi palace.
Another must-visit place on the tourist trail, the Grand Bazaar. it’s an amazing place to wander around and be parted from your money buying stuff you don’t really want or need.

I’ve a small favour to ask…
If you enjoy reading this or any of the other blogs I’ve written, please click on an advert or two. You don’t have to buy anything you don’t want to of course – although if you did find something that tickled your fancy that would be fab! – but the revenue from them helps me to cover some of the cost of maintaining this site (which isn’t cheap and comes out of my own pocket). Remember, 99% of the pictures used in my blogs can be purchased as prints from my other website –  https://paulbigland.zenfolio.com/
