Project 10 April | Abu Dhabi Lifestyle Photographer

Aaahh.. April.. time for a little break from school and a little break from Abu Dhabi for me and the girls – we headed off to Istanbul in Turkey last week to have a little fun, to relax, to sightsee, to eat our bodyweights in baklava, and to just hang out together. I feel like so many of my Project 10’s have been of our travels, but I guess that’s because they’re so important to us as a family – they give us that chance to just hang out away from email and phones, to see and experience new places and things – for us, it’s one of our shared family passions – we were just sad that hubby couldn’t make it on this trip too 🙁

The day started with a little walk from our hotel to the Blue Mosque – past some random street grafitti – I have no idea what the mushrooms mean but we saw quite a few of them around town!
Spring was in bloom in Istanbul – the girls stopped at every flower they saw – we don’t get flowers here in the desertThe Basilica Cisterns – the girls found them a bit spooky!!Then off for our 2nd trip to the Grand BazaarWe indulged in LOTS of street snacks – fresh juices squeezed right in front of us and the most honey drenched baklava here! The Aya Sofya was amazing – busy with tourists but huge enough that you could still find tranquillity in there – and some kind man offered to take a photo of us when he saw me randomly trying to do the self portrait thing, which was made all the more complicated as Indy’s in the carrier on my back!!!! Yes it’s a total tourist picture but as it’s pretty much the only one of me on holiday with the girls I’ll say yay for getting myself in a photo this month!!!More snacks – ice cream, despite how cold it was, but in a picture perfect spot with the Blue mosque in the backgroundFollowed up with a sugar rush fuelled dancing show for all the fellow tourists walking through Sultanahmet Park!!!!And the stunning Blue Mosque itself

I have to give a HUGE shoutout to all the people who gave me tips via my Facebook page – not only did it turn out two of my clients had lived in Turkey, but so many others gave us tips for the city – I love that this love of travel is shared not only with my kids, but with so many others too – it just makes me smile….

Now you must head on over to see what my gorgeous friend Val at the Red Balloon photography got upto this month, and follow the circle round…

Until next month, Kirsty x
