Shopping for lights this Diwali made us miss these beautiful lamp shops 💡 in Istanbul. Wish we had more space in our luggage 🧳 to carry some of these beauties home.
Not only the lamps but Istanbul has one of the oldest and really huge bazaars that offer all manner of treasures 💎 and souvenirs, from jewelry to carpets , from spices to the best sweets 🥨 in the world.
The Grand Bazaar is the oldest covered market in the world and it felt like an ancient shopping mall in today’s world. There are thousands of shops and some cute little cafes ☕️ residing in the bazaar. We were really eager to shop and walked away with some amazing fragrances, Turkish towels , a few table lamps and some souvenirs for friends and family.
👉🏻The easiest way to reach here is by a metro 🚇 to the Beyazit station and a 2️⃣ minute walk from there.
👉🏻 The grand bazaar is open from 9 AM to 7 PM (closed on sundays) and is usually crowded most of the time.
Smells and colors that will take your breath away , best describes the Egyptian Bazaar or the spice market. The bazaar is specialized on selling spices and herbs , dried fruits 🍎 and nuts 🥜, teas , oils , sweets 🍫 and what not. Piles of spices and Turkish delight instantly caught our eye and we could not resist but try and buy whatever we could in our tiny little hands.
👉🏻 spice bazaar is a 1️⃣0️⃣ minute walk 🚶🏻♀️from the Eminonu bus stop.
👉🏻 it is open all days of the week from 9 AM to 7 PM.
Istiklal Street is one of the most famous streets in Istanbul and a home to many boutiques, art galleries, cafes, pubs and nightclubs, historical patisseries and restaurants. It is a market of the modern Istanbul. We visited the street almost every night as it was really close to our Airbnb and was up till about 2 or 3 AM in the morning.
👉🏻 it is easily accessible by a metro 🚇 at the Taksim station
👉🏻 It has one of the many outlets of Hafiz Mustafa 1864 , the most favourite Baklava and Turkish Delight producer in Istanbul. We tasted some of the best sweets 🍭 of our lives.

Visiting the cities by walking is wonderful, but even better is to stop every now and then to drink surprising cocktails watching beautiful view.
I think that the most beautiful (and instagrammable ) place to do it is the @docohotelvienna , with one of the most incredible view of the city.
This hotel is located right in the centre of Vienna, in front of St. Stephen’s cathedral.
On the 6th floor the ONYX Bar is the perfect location to have an aperitif and becomes the hot-spot in town at night.
Here I tasted a perfect @ginmare cocktail with basil 🌿 and cinnamon (super 🍸)!
This place has entered my list of my favourite hotels in Europe .

I took it easy yesterday with a side trip to Lake Bohinj (40 min from Bled by bus) where I walked along the lake and hiked up to the Savica waterfall. At first it was cloudy and rainy but the clouds parted and the sun lit up the crystal clear water. Pretty incredible.
Zaselek predstavlja naselje, zgrajeno iz 3 do največ 15 kmečkih domov (stanovanjski objekti in gospodarska poslopja). Je prehodna oblika med samotno kmetijo in strnjenim naseljem oziroma vasjo, lahko pa predstavlja manjši del naselja, ki je prostorsko ločen od jedra vasi. Zaselki nimajo izoblikovanega središča, kar je značilno za strnjena naselja. Razprostranjenost zaselkov v Sloveniji je neenakomerna, značilni so predvsem za hribovite predele države, med njimi najbolj izstopajo Predalpske pokrajine, pojavljajo pa se tudi na Dolenjskem in v gričevnatem svetu vzhodne Slovenije.
