Long time no see, huh? I know I know. And I am really sorry for that. I will make it up to you by telling you everything about this wonderful trip I had last year in December, in Jordan. Visited Amman, which is the capital of the country and of course Petra, considered one of the New Seven Wonders of the World along with Taj Mahal – India, Christ the Redeemer – Brazil, The Great Wall of China, The Colosseum – Rome, Machu Picchu – Peru and Chichén Itzá – Mexico. Let me tell you more and let me try to explain why it was for me, one of the most meaningful trips ever.
Istanbul – the city between two continents
Ohhh Istanbul! You either love it, or hate it! Or one day you love it, the next day you hate it and then you love it again. Just like a roller-coaster ride haha. Istanbul is an enormous city and when I say enormous, trust me, it is extraordinarily wide. I stayed for 7 nights and still didn’t have time to actually explore this city at its fullest. I guess not even half! And you know how I travel… wake up early in the morning and come back to the accommodation at midnight after walking all day, so I really did my best. Also, Istanbul is the only city in the world that is located on two continents. Now you are in Europe and after you cross a bridge, you are in Asia. How cool is that? In this case, you can imagine the mix of cultures in this city. Amazing vibe! But please, let me tell you more…
