I'm back from my trip to Turkey, and I just have one word: wow. I've never been more inspired by visiting a country before. It exceeded all of my expectations, thanks to its breathtaking landscape, deep food traditions, and, most importantly, its hospitable people.
I have much more on its way, but for now, here are a few photos to give you a taste of the life-changing experience.
Photos: Galata Tower as seen from the Golden Horn; selling simit on the backstreets; tiles at the market; Istanbul at sunset (taken by Andy); 17th-century Ottoman Kütahya tiles at Topkapı Palace; Kaş, 7:03 p.m.; Canned goods in Şirince; Cappadocia one hour after sunrise.
