Turkish Delights

Hello lovelies!!! I’m home again and it’s lovely to see you all. My whirlwind trip to Turkey was filled with early mornings, flights to catch and bags to pack… and yet it was the most perfect holiday ever!

Still dreaming of the Bosphorous coastline, fairy chimneys, breath-taking travertines, ornate architecture, soothing thermal baths, delish food and the utterly captivating amalgamation of European and Islamic cultures and charm of Turkey.

I have many stories to tell -- but first, some photographs to share while I catch my breath…
