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.
