Then came the chaos which queerly retrieved my fascination with this country’s deep-rooted history, culture and tradition that is translucently prevalent. I felt the need to go amidst the conflicts and riots. Before anyone knew, I had already booked my ticket via Turkish Airlines. I tried to let go any pre-conceived ideas, expectations or plans. Instead, I allowed myself to get lost in this unique and wondrous city and immersed myself in its sophisticated civilization. After all, this must be the essence of traveling.
Walking around, I gotta sample Istanbul’s classic street foods. The local vendors really know how to perfectly grill corn on the cob!
And yes, I still keep TL in my currency envelopes, which means, I’m definitely coming back ~ for more!
