A quick trip to İstanbul

This past Saturday we flew to İstanbul to attend the wedding of my cousin. As expected, it was pretty hot when we left here.

However İstanbul had other plans for us, but the gray mist over the blue mosque was still dreamy.

Finally at the end of the night, my handsome cousin married to his sweetheart,

and the youngest guest of the party was my 5 months old nephew who had his own quiet plans for the night.

The next day, the newly wed couple flew to Maldives for honeymoon and we flew back to Datça, but guess what??? All the travelling as well as the weather differences made me sick. I think I have some kind of flue, and right now I am laying on my bed on a beautiful summer day and listening the happy sounds coming from the beach. I hope you are all healty and happy..

  12. Oh, so sorry to hear you're feeling a bit sick, but you know the beach has magical healing powers and I'm sure you'll be up and about soon enough. Till then, rest, drink plenty of fluids and listen to the sea.

  13. Get well soon, and don't drink any strange beer from the ocean.

  14. All the best for that beautiful couple!
    Love your pictures!!
    B xx

  15. You have beautiful pictures of this trip but I'm sorry it cost you your health.
    Meanwhile your lovely bedroom is a nice place to be sick and hopefully soon recover.
    I remember when you bought the painting. How the years pass quickly.
    Be well!
