Bridging Continents

This is one of the bridges in Istanbul that links the European and Asian continents, I still find it amazing that I get to experience life in a city that literally spans two continents. To me this bridging of two continents is what makes Istanbul so special - it is a perfect mix of: Europe and Asia, old world and new world, familiar and exotic. I feel at once comfortable there and at the same time I'm intrigued daily by it's uniqueness.

My only regret is that I don't have enough time to explore!

These guys (with Utah roots) are starting to hit the big time: Imagine Dragons - It's Time. Pin It

Hi Jamie, did you take these photos from the water, there must be some great boats that ply these waters..is English the common language spoken there, or a blend of many?
Will check out that band!❤

Love that song! We were just talking about the intrigue of that bridge over the weekend. Two places but really, just one. What a wonderful world.

I always thought it would be fabulous to travel for your work, but you are not the first person to say it's not as great as it appears since work takes precedence over sightseeing.

spanning two continents does sound incredible - it takes diversity to a whole new level.

Let me know whenever you make it to the Asian side. :) It all takes time and I know the feeling. When I'm in Istanbul I'm most often on the Asian side and wish to go to Europe but sometimes time doesn't allow it. :(

Great shot of the bridge. Istanbul really is the best mix of east and west. That's what makes it so special :)
