Without any doubt one of the best things about Istanbul is that it has the Hagia S0phia in it. This epic mountain of a building was the world’s largest cathedral for nearly 1000 years. Sabrina, my friend since we both lived on the Islands (her on Büyükada and me on Heybeliada), took her friend Coco to see this wonder of the world for the first time this week and I tagged along to watch them look.
30 Minutes in the Life is a (damn fine) blog circle. Next stop this month is Ireland where Meagan Dwyer Photography took some stunning photographs of sheep shearing.
