Postcards from Turkey IV: Istanbul

We’ve been back a few days now, but postcards always take a while to arrive, no?

On a too short stop over towards the end of our journey, Istanbul greeted us with cold and rain. Still, it is such an amazing city, its vastness astonishes me every time.
Here are a few postcards from our crossing from the Asian to the European side in the feribot.

You can also cross the Bosporus using one of the two bridges. My first image of Istanbul is when we arrived by car, some six years ago. It was almost midnight, and we saw the bridge below us which was still so busy with hundreds of car lights.
Quite a breathtaking view.
