A few months ago, Seraina and I travelled to Istanbul. We had been looking forward to this trip for quite some time, even before we had planned it. I had been to Istanbul once before, close to ten years ago and I had really liked it back then. We stayed at an airbnb in the Cihangir neighborhood, which is situated between Taksim Square and Karaköy. The area was great, the apartment was beautiful and cozy, and good coffee was nearby. We were expecting great food in Istanbul and that was what we got.
