Indeed. We flew from Sabiha Gokcen Airport in the southeast of the city, over Istanbul back home to the northwest. The view from the plane was very, very impressive!

Here are some pictures I took from the Havatas shuttle bus between Sabiha Gokcen Airport to Taksim. Not high quelity, but it gives an impression of modern Istanbul.

Thank you! More Blue Mosque. Pictures can look a bit gray, cause on our first day, cold rain was coming fast.

I wanted to visit Istanbul since the last time I visited Turkey. Izmir and surroundings back in... 1994. So I was afraid Istanbul would disappoint me. But it really didn't, on the contrary. I'd love to go back!

It wasn't raining yet... But fortunately there are plenty of dry places to visit on a rainy day!

Oh yes, it's one of my favourite cities on Earth.

Great Benonie, I can't wait to see more. Istanbul must be a difficult experience for photographers because there's a great picture everywhere.
