İstanbul, the city of dreams and fairy tales. A gorgeous history, great wonders and buildings which are all the treasures of cultural heritage. People from all over the world, when youre walking in İstanbul streets, you can hear a couple speaking French, an Arabian family, Japaneese people taking photos. All the Turkish people are very nice to them. Turkish hospitality is very famous. Turkish people generally love foreigners, and try to help them. Colorful İstanbul streets will amaze you. Turkey is the geographic centre of the region. And İstanbul was the wonderful capitol of Ottoman Empire. All the culture, music, foods, languages, books were centralizing into İstanbul. This made a great culture. A culture of joy, cheer and big chaos.
The Prince İslands are the jewelry of İstanbul. You buy a ferry boat ticket and wait the time of the sailing time. Sit outside of the ferry, and watch the wonderful İstanbul view. Mosques, old buildings, new buildings, bridges and ships. You can see the people throwing simit to sea gulls. Simit is a traditional turkish circular bread. Sea gulls catch them. The ferry boat sail and slowly you are going to The Prince İslands. Smell the air and the odour of the sea. Hear the sounds of the cheerful people speaking English, German, Korean, Indian.. Feel the love, feel groovy.
The long ferry trip is like a meditation. Its one the most relaxing journey. There are four big islands. Choose one of them, and when your ferry arrives the island you choose, step your foot on the land. You can ask Turkish people where you can go, have a meal or have a beer. Or you can try Turkish tea. Walk the old island ways, see the wonderful İstanbul buildings, take photos and feel the music of İstanbul.
