In love with life #istanbullover

My story

Istanbul is a place, where you could fill with energy. The first time, when I was there in 2014, then I just tasted the city, but later in 2019 returning back, I fell in love with it. From that period of time, I couldn't be without it anymore.❤️

What do I do here?

My current job position allows me to get the most out of this city. I am a journalist who has smoothly moved into PR, then being a trainer and came to the SMM. Now remote working helps me to combine my social life with work by balancing them.

What's the best of my city?

Mmm 🥰🥰🥰 Istanbul could be described as the subtle salty notes of the Bosphorus, its awesome soul–burning coffee, it's the smiles of beautiful people. It is a true Love ❤️

My tours secret sauce

I'll make you fall in love with the city and then it is impossible not to come back again)))). Together with me, it is possible to see both bright modern locations and something historical. I am not a guide, but with me, you could feel the city by gaining practical knowledge and understanding the real life of the city. Last but not least, I'm a great photographer which is a huge advantage as you could be confident that with me you will guarantee to get awesome photos/video and make some content from the amazing city. I can help with shopping (based on what is needed and for what amount), sweets, and gifts for loved ones.
