As you may know, Riz and I spent a couple of days in Istanbul and it honestly couldn’t have been better! We didn’t go in with too many plans and everything ended up falling into place perfectly – we did a lot of walking and mostly popped into pretty shops and restaurants along the way. However, we did make a plan to visit the nearby Topkapi Palace and its opulent pavilions and beautiful gardens – here comes a little postcard from there.
I am also working on a complete Mini Guide post from Istanbul so you can expect that on Monday morning.
The Topkapi Palace is built on one of the highest points of Istanbul and was one of the major residences of the Ottoman sultans and their courts for almost 400 years.
