But the truth of the matter is, there are more maps in the world than anyone can count. Every person draws a map that shows themselves at the center.

FireShot Capture 1 - Istanbul - Google Maps_ - https___www.google.com_maps_place_I

Ever since I started watching (Urdu20705186320_51617216d1_z – dubbed) Turkish shows, Istanbul has been at the top of my list. The only city in the world that spans two continents Europe and Asia. I started searching on the internet for more videos and pictures as the dreamy city looked so surreal and magical in the show. I was blown away by its picturesque sceneries and breathtaking architecture. The city is full of historic and exciting places such as the Blue Mosque, Hagia Sophia Museum, Grand Bazaar and many more. Furthermore, Istanbul has a wonderful natural landscape named Bosphorus Strait. Bosphorus is the strait between the Black Sea and the Sea of Marmara that separates Europe and Asia. A cruise trip down the Bosphorus is definitely on my “to-do list”.
