  • ☀️The most profound discoveries are often in plain view, you just need to know where to look for them. Crawl to a rooftop and inhale the lights below☀️ Beginning life as a Byzantine church, later converted into a mosque, now a museum, this belongs to the UNESCO World Heritage site and is one of the world’s greatest archaeological achievements. An amazing piece of history with so many stories through so many eras. Famed for its mighty dome, Islamic calligraphy, and glittering mosaics, its turbulent past earns it instant respect from all religions. Hagia Sofia dates back to 537 AD and you can feel every one of those years in the building's grandeur. How intriguing to learn about it’s history, the different functions it has served, the different architectural elements that form it, the different faiths that have claimed it. There always has been something special about the glorious structure on the banks of the Bosphorus, at the point where Europe and Asia meet. The only way to truly understand the Church of the Holy Wisdom or Church of the Divine Wisdom is through the stories the building has to tell us, by lending our ears to the ghosts of history. The multiculturalism of the building is an astonishing insight into the unchanging aspects of our human nature, no matter when, no matter where, as humans we are universal. It has spanned so many centuries, cultures, religions, artistic movements, political junctures, and people that when we take a good look at what is left behind, its almost like holding up a mirror and seeing what makes us happy, what leaves us in awe, and, most importantly, what makes us all human. #hagiasophia #ayasofya #istanbul #turkey #turkiye #instaturkey #igersistanbul #igersturkey #traveltheworld #architecture #travelphotography #travel #travelgram #instatravel #globetrotter #beautifuldestinations #beautifulplaces #travelblogger #travellife #travelholic #travelstoke #ig_photooftheday #igtravel #ig_captures #passionpassport #wanderlust #dametraveler #travelbug #explore #doyoutravel

  • I put my heart back on my sleeve and wrote about what my final months of 2018 were like. There’s a new post up on my blog, where I talk about loss and how I dealt with it, to eventually get to a place of healing ❤️ I had to grab the tissues, because this one’s a little bit of a tear jerker #linkinbio #motherhoodunplugged

  • Burg Eltz is considered to be the most romantic of Germany‘s around 20.000 castles and castle ruins. Despite its somewhat isolated location, it is absolutely worth the effort needed to get there🧡
