Istanbul Calling

As I mentioned in my first post of the year (see it here), I will be celebrating my 30th birthday (July baby) in Istanbul. I have been sending out the official email invitation this week and I'm soooooo excited!
Why Istanbul? Because it is rich in history, architecture, leather goods and culinary delights! I have asked my friends to come along with me, share a few laughs, toast a couple of drinkies, eat good, learn a few things and most importantly feed the soul!

I, as you would guess, am particularly looking forward to the eats. On my must do list is the IstanbulEats walks, have a look at them here.

I'm going to keep you all up to date on my planning and will have a full debrief and article on the adventures of a Jozi girl in Istanbul when I get back. Two and a half months and counting!

If you have any Istanbul tips for me, feel free to share them.


  1. I went last year august for my 30th as well. It really is a beautiful city. It can get extremely hot so u must keep hydrated. There are a lot of cats around the city. The turkish men lurve black women so pretty as u are they probably will come on to you.

    There is lots to see n buy n taste so as long as you have lots of turkish lira u will be A okey.

    Enjoy! Can't wait to read about your experience of the city.
