Every time, I have visitors I fall in love all over again with Istanbul!

I'm spending my days showing off this wonderful city to my American cousins, who currently live in Switzerland. I sometimes surprise myself with all the historical tidbits I've learned here and now share with others. And I used to hate studying history 101 in college!

When you have visitors, they offer you a different perspective on where you live. They notice different things. They are intrigued, excited by and even jealous of things your city has or offers.

For example, my youngest cousin loved watching the jelly fish in the Bosphorus. Sometimes, it really is the little things in life.

Off to enjoy another beautiful day in Istanbul! This time, I'm packing my sunscreen.

Thanks everyone! It was fun having my cousins here. Their 11-year-old daughter had a lot of energy and really seemed to enjoy the city too.
