Istanbul - Topkapi Palace (still on the wish list)



 
 

Hello all!

There's a fine layer of dust here on my blog and it's time for dust-busting. The reason is that I got the travel bug bite. One day after we arrived from Turkey I continued on a three-day trip around my country and finally I am back. So, next I want to share an interesting adventure we had at Topkapi Palace

We came to the Palace very well aware that being a Saturday and a mile long line for tickets, there was a fat chance for us to get inside, enjoy soaking up the details of it (and we were told that we need good 2-3 hours to really see everything) we decided to leave it for another time. Yet, I couldn't console myself with just that so I dragged my husband to the Palace Museum Shop at least to treat myself with a guide book of the Palace. And as we entered, there was a small room with props so that people can take memorable photos of themselves dressed as royals. I almost jumped out of joy. My husband was reluctant to do it, but as you can see, I have well-developed persuasion skills and now we are so glad we did the photo shoot. We will certainly never forget it.
