Turkey definitely is one of the best places to go to around the globe. It connects Europe and Asia and surely is the coolest place around.
First of all you get the visa. It’s not as hard to get the visa like it is for Canada. Next, which ever landsape you like, its there. Mountains, lakes, island, coastal areas, sea and it has all. You want shopping? It has huge and beautiful malls. All brands available; high end or normal ones. It has lovely bookstores and maps to give you ways to get to your destination. It is a holidays spot in summer due to all the resorts, beaches and sun etc. And is surely a place to be in winter with beautiful scenery. It is so much like Europe and its Muslim’s territory all round with beautiful mosques everywhere and It also has churches but not as much. It’s little Europe with halal food there whenever you want it. You cannot forget the generosity of the people there. Their outrageously friendly nature and they go out of their way to help you. Even the taxi drivers or the local shop owners give a discount for no reason calling it hadyah. The famous Turkish Tea or Coffee is offered every now and then and it’s amazing believe me although I had it after adding alot of milk to it but it was at its best. How can one forget the accent in which the people speak and they try so hard to make you understand what they want to say as most did not know much English. But they love to talk to the foreigners and they are so nice, they show you love and they’ll put the stone of protection from evil eye to your baby’s stroller and its so touching. My baby got so much love from every other person there. It was heartfelt. ❤️
Also, they love their country and are proud. Its a fact, you can see it everywhere; the flags, in the speach of the locals when they say something about their country. Its true and it’s there in their blood, hot and rushing in their veins and the previous year it was prooved and seen on the television, out for the world to see. How they protected themselves from getting over ruled and how they played their parts and roles as citizens and how loyal they were to their leader and vice versa. 🇹🇷❤️
The local markets or the bazars like they call it, are not to be missed out. Your hands will itch to buy the beauties you’re going to find there walking down the paved aisles packed with stores that can provide you with things of all kind. From prayer mats to towels and bathrobes, from souvenirs to gemstones and silver jewellery, from getting photographed in ridiculously rich expensive gowns from the time of sultans, from finding dry fruits to spices of all kinds. It’s amazing to just hang around there going from one shop to another, getting the insight of the Turkey, its people and its rich culture. 🇹🇷❤️
