About a month ago, I posted about an exciting project I was doing with British Airways for their Last Call campaign, for which they 3D printed me (!) and sent the miniature Fleur off to Istanbul to see what delights it could find. Sadly, I didn’t make it to any vintage shops, should there even be any in Istanbul; but I did do some pretty awesome things, and I am delighted to be able to post the fabulous photos!
Firstly, breakfast. I entirely approve of this traditional Turkish breakfast from an awesome-looking place called Yesil Mavi Cafe, which contains all the major food groups. Cheese, eggs, meats and olives. I will eat the hell out of this when I go myself.
Obviously, I did my fair share of visiting the big landmarks of Istanbul. Here I am at the Blue Mosque, also known as Sultanahmet Mosque. Built between 1609 and 1616, it’s called the Blue Mosque because of the tiles inside. Can’t wait to go in and see!
And last but not least, some desserts. How I wish this were really life sized!
I’d like to say hello and thank you to my real life Istanbul guide Gulsah Peker (@berizeka) and photographer Fulya Beken (@fulyabeken) who are total babes and whom I will be asking for tips when I go there myself in September! As mentioned in the last blog, it’s a complete coincidence that BA sent me there as my trip was already booked! It’s just made it all really exciting.
If you’d like to get a bargainous last-minute trip to Istanbul or any of the other fab destinations on offer, check out Last Call – the places change all the time so keep clicking back and hopefully you’ll go (in person) somewhere cool for a low price. Thank you British Airways for including me in this fun project… I’m now just eagerly awaiting my mini me reward to be delivered to my house so I can put her on display!
