Istanbul (Turkey). Crossing the Bosphorus – for hundreds of thousands of commuters every day – is just moving from home to office and back: it’s quite normal in a city with 15+ millions of inhabitants, and which extends itself along two continents… But if you are in Istanbul and you want to feel the spirit of the city, do not miss the opportunity to catch a boat (from Eminonu to Uskudar or Kadikoy, or vice-versa) and breath the sea-breeze. By crossing the Bosphorus you will be impressed by how the city can be different from that perspective point. No traffic (except maybe some seagulls), no noise, no pollution: it’s a sort of refuge, an escape way from the daily noise. And a wonderful point for capturing photos of Istanbul’s landscape.
