The hardest thing about being part-time travellers is not missing out on major sightseeing while at the same time staying true to our love for slow travel. Finding the right balance between sightseeing and leisurely taking in the local feel of the destinations we visit is really important to us. We have come to understand that the best way to achieve this balance and save ourselves loads of valuable time is by leaving most of the sightseeing to the hands of experts. This is why we are happy to have come across the best sightseeing tours in Istanbul during our recent trip to Turkey.
Tasting a country’s food is definitely among the best ways to connect with its culture. Though it seems simple and mundane, food has the power to initiate us into a whole different world. Food is one of the most vital parts of any given society and it reflects aspects of a people’s history, traditions and lifestyle in the most striking way. At the end of the day, food is life itself. But food is also great fun. For all those reasons, we love tasting the world’s cuisines. This is why we decided to take a food tour in Istanbul. The meeting point of Europe and Asia couldn’t possibly have boring food. Therefore, we were determined to learn as much about the secrets of Turkish cuisine and the food culture of Istanbul as possible.
