Istanbul has been on my list of cities to see for a long time, so I was delighted to have the opportunity to visit it, even if briefly, a few weeks ago for a trip organised by Eco Turkey.
I was only there for just over a day, however the little I have seen is enough for wanting to go back and see more.
Many people discouraged me for going, after recent events, however I am a strong believer that we should not stop travelling and change our plans. Living in fear is not the answer.
See below a selection of photos taken during my stay in Istanbul.
