While in Istanbul, I spend a good portion of my time at Kinali Ada, a small island just a 30 minute boat ride from the city. The island is beautiful and has an incredible view of Istanbul's skyline.
For my grandmother's 70th birthday celebration, we left it to the last minute. So we talked to the locals and many suggested we went to a restaurant on the Asian side of Turkey with a skyline view of the city. Luckily enough, we managed to get reservations for 14 people the day of.
We got ready, took a cab to the harbour, and waited for the restaurant's boat to take us to their restaurant. Needless to say, I felt extremely cool. Once we got there, the sun just started to set and I started snapping photos before it got dark.
Although I'm not usually a fan of seafood, it was quite delicious and next thing you know, we've been sitting there for five hours. Good company and great food.
