Turkey: Part 1

View of Istanbul

If you ever have the chance to go to Turkey, please do. It is an amazing country rich with culture and, without sounding too cliche, where East really does meet West. Turkey has so much to offer and I feel like we barely scratched the surface.

We spent time seeing the sights in Istanbul, reunited with Lauren and my dad, caught some sun in Southern Turkey and then headed East to the unimaginable land of Cappadocia.  Here are just a handful of my favorite pictures from our time here.
