Prince’s Island: Aid El-Adha version

Aid moubarek said to all muslims all over the world, we hope you all had such a great moment with your friends and families. Our prayers goes to all those people who cannot celebrate it due to wars, poverty or sickness. Hoping that the upcoming holidays will find us all happy and leaving in a peaceful world.

Our feast day was incredible and different. Something unexpected and you all know how much unexpected things are splendid. We joined some friends to spend the day at the Prince’s Island.

The weather was nice even if the rain visited us a while. We ate a lot, laughed as hard as we could, played games and games, rest from the stressful life of Istanbul and of course took pictures to share with you.

We realized after this day that sometimes you are sad to not spend holidays at home and you end up your day meeting new people, building friendships, discovering new places and living priceless moments.

If you have the opportunity to live differently something you always lived in a same way. Don’t think twice and go for it. Take your life in hand and make your own new habits. 

And of course if you come to Istanbul, spend a day in Prince’s Island and take plenty of pictures to share with us and your friends.

Enjoy our day in Prince’s Island in Pictures and follow us on social media for more sharing @asfarwithus

Time to leave… Our Tips.

Time to leave... Our TIps

Bye Morocco and thank you for this warm and happy three months. Now it’s time to pack and leave. Time to say GoodBye to Family and Friends and for us this is the saddest thing about leaving your hometown.

Today we are sharing with you our Tips for the LEAVING Moment.

Bring something that will help you feel like home

It could be family pictures, your teddy bear, some FOOOOOD or anything that gives you a feeling you’re not that far from home.

Plan the next meeting with your family

For us this is so important because once we decide when we are going to meet again. We start talking about it everytime. Flight tickets, things we want from Morocco and what we will be doing when they will come to visit us.

Imagine your life abroad

Go to a new university ! Live in a new house ! Meet new Friends ! And maybe a love story... You are going to mistery, to something new. And this will be full of surprises…beautiful surprises.

Set your new life resolutions

Last year, we took time to make our new life resolutions because we think that once you leave your comfort zone you have to start changing all those things you’re not happy to do or have. Maybe you should start eating healthier or being more organized.

Home is where your heart is

Leaving your Parents and Friends do not make you a bad person. It is an important step in your life to fly with your own wings, to choose the life you want to live and to make your own mistakes. And of course your family and you will always love each other and good friends will always be your eternal friends. 

Hope that our tips will help be as much as it helps us, thanks for reading

Much love

Majorelle Garden – Jardin Majorelle

Eid Mubarak Said to all Muslim Community all over the world. During this holidays I had a very special place in my To Visit in Morocco List: Majorelle Garden – Jardin Majorelle.

The Jardin Majorelle in Marrakech is one of the most visited sites in Morocco. It took French painter Jacques Majorelle (1886-1962) forty years of passion and dedication to create this enchanting garden in the heart of the “Ochre City”.

Welcome to the Jardin Majorelle

An Yves Saint Laurent museum will open in Fall 2017.

One week in Istanbul

A lot people dream to have a one week in Istanbul but they have to pay a Big Amount to a travel company or a private guide.  But who don’t want to pay less ! We all do ! We are giving you in this article a proposition of activities you can do with transport directions and a small idea about the costing.

Day 1:

Start by Laleli, you will need to convert your money and it is better if you do it there. You can go by Tramway and stop at the Laleli University station.

After Laleli, you have the Grand Bazaar in just 10 minutes walk but pay attention the prices are 3 times the real prices.

In the same place, you have Sultan Ahmet Cami called also the blue mosque and just in front of it you have Hagia Sofia Museum, you can also go to Topkapi Palace Museum.

To visit a lot of Museum, you can buy the museum pass 85TL valid for 5 days (120hours)

Day 2:

We all come to Istanbul with the desire to visit Taksim but let us tell you that this place has a charm day and night. Since you have one week and maybe will not have the opportunity to go there twice, spend all day there.

Do shopping, buy ice cream and chocolate, take the traditional Tramway. Don’t skip any shop, any church and any bookstore. Magic happen there.

Visit Galata Tower, go up and enjoy the view.

How to go there ? Subway and stop at the Taksim metro station.

Day 3:

Go to Cevahir ! You will find a lot of brands, you can eat there, have fun there and have a massage in the chair massage with just 1 TL at the end of the day.

How to go there ? Subway. Stop at the sisli-mecidiyekoy station.

Day 4:

Stop shooping for a moment because it’s time for some ramble.

Take the ferry from Karakoy and head to Kadikoy. You have Moda Sahili where you can do a picnic and have the most beautiful Sunset.

And for night time, Visit Hasan Usta for an amazing waffle (15TL) and have a walk in the large avenue where you can find trendy people and attractive shops with interesting gadgets.

Day 5:

Visit the Spice Bazaar where you can find fabrics, spices and baklava, the bridge of Eminonu has one of the best views in Istanbul and don’t leave the place without a Balik Ekmek; the fabulous fish sandwich (8TL)

You can go there by tramway and stop at the Eminonu station.

Day 6:

The asian part is breathtaking, less buildings more greenery. You can have a walk there, take a Sahlep and a simit in front of bosphorus or even go to Kiz Kulesi by vapur.

You can go to Uskudar from Besiktas Harbour, it takes 5min.

Day 7:

Last but no least, ladies and gentlemen, this is our favorite part. We love and adore to walk in Bebek because the houses are chic, people are stylish and where the vibes are classy.

The other thing you can do in this region is to go to Ortakoy and eat a tasty Kumpir (15TL). Visit the Ortakoy mosque because the view from the inside is just peaceful.

You can go there by bus from Besiktas.

We hope that you liked the One Week In Istanbul. If you try something from this list don’t forget to share it with us.

And we are waiting for you on our Facebook Page here !

Much love.
