The Istanbul series – Part I@The Grand Bazaar

Hello lovely people from the Blog-land!

Wassup and all?

Yours truly begins the Turkey series from today, taking you all through a virtual trip to this awesomalicious part of the world, blessed with gorgeous blues of the ocean forming it’s backdrop, the sun smiling in its full glory over it, colours beaming from every nook and corner and inhabited by beautiful people.

So are you ready?

I so totally can hear a loud ‘YES’ and lemme tell ya’all, in case it’s a ‘NO’, I promise just have a look at these pictures and you surely are gonna ‘liebe’ them.

So, today I take you to the very famous and popular ‘Grand Bazaar’ in Istanbul.

Crowded, packed with people …. the moment you step into Grand Bazaar, I am warning you, be ready to be pushed, stepped onto and walked over. But let me also tell you, it is all so worth it because it is indeed the most gorgeous bazaar I have ever seen – Bracelets, necklaces, antiques, handmade bowls, cutlery, home dΓ©cor, dresses, sheesha, Turkish eyes, Turkish delights, various kinds of teas, shoes and what not.

And of course, one post is not going to be enough for showing you what Grand Bazaar is all about so presenting to you Part I of the Grand Bazaar series.
