Now it's Istanbul, not Constantinople

| |
Exciting news! Alex and I just booked our plane tickets to Istanbul, Turkey for this summer! We had an amazing opportunity to meet up with Nick & Cassi, friends of ours who are now currently teaching in Kuwait, after a long sting teaching in Korea. On their summer teaching breaks, they fill their time with traveling around the world, and we all decided to meet up somewhere nearby Kuwait, and settled on the beautiful and fabled city of Istanbul!

I cant wait to check out the Grand Bazaar, the underground Basilica Cistern, drink lots of Turkish coffee and maybe even haggle for a beautiful turkish rug for Laurel! It will be the first time we've ever left North America, so we're super pumped. Let's just see how long that excitement lasts after I board the 12 hour flight to Europe right??

Do you have any exciting travel plans out there, friends? Anyone been to Istanbul and have recommendations??
