30 cities challenge #3: The one you wanted to visit, but you haven’t had the time to do so

You already have made plans to visit that place, but you have never done it.


As far as I know, I am the only member of my family who still hasn’t been in Istanbul. Sure, thanks to Turkish series it became a popular destination among Chilean tourists, but the only time I could have visited it (without worrying about money and such), I just started my current job and I would have to wait a full year for holidays.

Anyways, why Istanbul? Food, culture and contrasts. Sure, I expect it to be quite noisey and that does not stop, but exactly, that is why I cannot wait to visit Istanbul. Plus, Turkish language and music are wonderful, so having a chance to practice and being exposed constantly to it is always a different and new experience. And food… there are too many delicious things to list. It is a city that I would like to see in EVERY season.
