I am a cook in my country. I began this long tour by having some (a lot of) spices from Spice Market. I live my job in every country. :)

Willis - March 23, 2019

We had a nice panorama from Camlica Hill. Place was so crowded. I think there were a few Turkish people. You dont know the value of your city.

Joshua - February 12, 2019

I could not decide which one is more beautiful; watching Istanbul from Bosphorus or from Camlica Mountain.
