Istanbul day 5

I was too tired to blog yesterday, so here is an update :)
First stop was to an old friend, Kristin, I showed her shop a few years ago in the mean time she moved to the shop next door which is twice as large.

Kristin has great taste and the entire shop is full of amazing items, both made by herself and also other artists. You can find her shop Evihan at Çukurcuma Caddesi Altıpatlar Sokak Beyoğlu - Istanbul. She also has an Etsy shop.

Our next stop was a boat tour of 2 hours to see all the palaces and old buildings built near the shore.
I think these pictures speak for themselves...

We took the short version of the Boğaz Tour, there is also a longer version which takes about 6 hours, if you come to Istanbul I would definetly recommend you take either one of them as you can see many hidden places with a great view, these tours are also very cheap so a great way to treat yourself.

Today is my last day in Istanbul, I will be returning home tonight, last post will be tomorrow.
