Egyptian “Spice” bazaar

I’ll start my first post with the Egyptian “spice” bazaar because we went there twice and the place is AMAZING. We had so much fun and whatever they sell in this market, you just want to buy EVERYTHING... I’m dead serious I meant it... EVERYTHING and you will shop there till you drop.

So let me tell you about what you might find there, ALL kind of sweets, Spices, nuts, tea, coffee, soap, tea cups , samawer, trays, table cloth, accessories, plates and everything you might think you need or don’t need.

Sigh < I wanna go back NOWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW

One more thing, if you are considering visiting the Spice Bazaar you need to visit my friends and their shop is near the main gate their shop name is (Bosphorus ) and the sell fine ceramics and Turkish delights , Pashminas “Scarves” and spices.

The guys who works there are SOOOOOOOO friendly… HELLO FRIENDS (Ferhat – Deniz and ILyaas) Thank you for being nice and thank you for the gifts (they gave us the most adorable bracelets ever in three different colors) I know... All of you are jealous NOW of our beautiful bracelets hahahahhahaa.. Thank you as I said again and again for those amazing bracelets :D

After you buy from (Bosphorus shop) you will find different shops that sell beautiful ceramics and fresh nuts… there is another guy his name is Mustafa he has so many beautiful ceramics, cushions and shawls.

If you need to buy the best coffee and eat the best pistachio sweets, take the first right and then go straight … you will cross by so many shops that you will get crazy and you will carry so many bags ( wear a comfy shoes)

So let me tell you something ~ first of all I LOVED the spice bazaar more than the grand bazaar don’t ask me why... I just did (the atmosphere in the spice bazaar ... ohh god I can’t explain) AMAZING AMAZING!!

Moreover, don’t you ever buy anything with the first price they offer you... Start to bargain till they give you a better price and if they don’t JUST LEAVE and trust me you will find the same item somewhere else within a step away with a lower price.

I really really really really can’t write anymore really-ies I LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOVED THE SPICE Bazaar

PS. Visit the spice bazaar before the grand bazaar because things are much cheaper and I think, you will find more things than the grand bazaar and now ENJOY THE PHOTOOOOOS


Turkey, Istanbul

Hello readers.. How are you all?! I hope you all are doing well... I’m so sorry for not updating the blog for so long. I was busy with college “Projects and Final exams” I thought I would lose my mind for a while but Al humdullah I’m still alive… I don’t want to talk about College I had enough of this word *ShootsMySelf*

Let’s talk about my trip to turkey which I’m absolute in love with… I didn’t think I would enjoy my time as much as I did and what was so beautiful that you are abroad and you still can hear the sound of ATHAAN

I went to turkey on “27.December.2011 till 7.January.2012” almost 12 days... I was worried that 12 days are so LONG... But trust me it’s NOT ENOUGH... we’ve been to different places in Istanbul as “Spice Bazaar, Grand Bazaar, Nisantasi, istinye park mall, jawaher mall, dolma bahja palace, Sultan Ahmed which called the blue mosque, Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia and of course Taksim.

We went out of Istanbul and we visited Yalova and Borsa. In Yalova we visited the waterfall, Turkish delights factory and then we went to Borsa and we had so much fun in the snow “I slipped million times because I was wearing the wrong boots”

I’ll update each place in a different post, so you can see the places and to know some information about each place I visited.

I hope you enjoy
