While my boyfriend was here I really got the opportunity to see the city together with someone that hadn't been here before as well. We both like to explore new places an try new restaurants together so we had a great week here together. During the weekends we spent the entire days together, but during the weekdays my boyfriend slept in, walked around in the city and planned some evening activities. In the evenings we went walking in different areas of the city and tried out a lot of roof tops. Istanbuls number of roof tops is unbelievable and the city and Bosphorous views are amazing.
On Wednesday we went to a roof top bar in the Besiktas area which was on top of a huge hotel. We ate a really cute plate with small Turkish specialties and a traditional cheese platter and enjoyed a jazz band that plays there every Wednesday.
On Saturday we went to have breakfast at a really nice terass in Bebek just by the Bosphorous - I must really say that the Turkish people know their breakfast. After a long brunch we waled a while by the Bosphorous. The walking lane was really nice and we walked for a long time eventually trying to find a park until we ended up by a big highway and had to take a cab home unless we didn't want to walk all the way back again. A good thing with some exercising though!
Today it is Monday and my boyfriend left Istanbul and I will be able to fully devote myself to my project which I will need since the presentation deadlines are coming up. Wish me luck! :)
