Our first week in Istanbul was amazing. It actually feels like we didn’t do much, like in a productive manner. But when I look at the pictures from last week it feels like we walked the whole city (even though this is not remotely true). That’s why I decided to share a few of my instagram shots with you and introduce you to some popular Turkish food staples that might be good to know when traveling with fructose malabsorption. Check out my instagram profile for more pictures. A nice weekend to you all.
