A girl in a beautiful palace...

Reality: Do not go around Istanbul on your own, they say. Well, I am on my own with this unexpected invite to spend a day here, so what am I supposed to just sit and do nothing? They take my tripod away, the place is swarming with tourists even though it is a Monday - well it is definitely worth it. Topkapi Palace will astound you with its mosaic beauty and stories it can tell...I give up long ago on any 'good shots', I just enjoy the experience - my first time in Turkey! I find this pretty room.. hundreds of people walk in an out, all the time. I ask the Turkish guard, in gesture language, for one shot.. He obliges, on my iphone - quick snap. Bad low resolution, the app cutting my frame too. Oh well, does it really matter? Or maybe what matters most is that I am wandering around this immense city, so unexpected and unplanned, thanks to an invite I was offered. So I stop and smile... and I admire..

TIP: Plan at least 2-3 hours for Topkapi palace, and either get the audio guide or a real human talking guide 🙂 It's worth it!
Do not expect 'insta shots'. Expect to be mesmerised and discover thousand stories... *
