I left the flat and noticed cute little fellow observing the city from the roof of my building:

I’m not used to see these guys (which I presume is a mallard) so thought it was interesting.

Last day of the year I took a walk down to Fenerbahce, Kalamis and Moda which in my opinion are the best part of Istanbul.

This post is about more various pictures of Istanbul from my latest trip.

Besiktas

Another one of my favourite places. I spent years going back and forth on a ship between Besiktas and Kadikoy accompanied by countless seagulls!

Besiktas's symbol eagle

This is the first time I ever visited this museum and enjoyed my time there.

Taksim

From Besiktas I took the bus to Taksim and walked along Istiklal Street all the way down to Galata and Cihangir.

Countryside

The next day I visited my family’s property at the countryside and enjoyed some fresh air and a small room my build as a bird sanctuary as he likes to spend some time in there. It’s quite refreshing and relaxing and hours may fly by just by watching the birds.
