it's been a while to upload. from now on, i'll post blogs everyday!:) 1-2. decided to go to Taxim street, so that i took a tram from KARAKOY 3-7. Not only on the street of Taxim but also of whole ISTANBUL, Can we meet lots of paintings for selling. they are so cheap but beautiful 8-9. Taxim consists of lots or narrow streets, which looks like usual EUROPE street i'd met in SPAIN or PORTUGAL 10. there were many graffiti arts on walls of streets.

"Don't Worry About Money While Traveling" Is Terrible Advice
Travelers and stuck at home Wanderlusters alike have all heard this phrase, "Don't worry about the money, its about the experience." Well, I am here to tell you that that advice is kind of bullshit. Don't get me wrong, traveling is worth dropping the money, and trust me you will drop money. But taking the spending cost out of the equation will not only leave you completely broke with no hopes for a future trip, but it will also ensure that you will not get the full experience of your travels! Traveling costs money. You have to pay for flights, hostels, food, transportation, tours, city passes, clubs, drinks and every other activity you feel the need to buy or experience aka hang gliding in the swiss alps. And while this is all 100% doable, (people do it all the time), smart travelers are aware of the minimum amount they need to spend, and then factor in more money on top of that for the issues that are bound to arise during the trip. This way they know exactly how much to save and ways to budget money before getting on that flight. Having a set amount of money that you plan on spending means you can figure out just how long your trip can be without having to struggle to pay for simple things like getting on a train or buying a round with your new friends that you met at the hostel. Because trust me you don't want to spend your whole trip worrying if you can spare the 4 euro to buy a drink for your roommate. Heres what will happen if you take this terrible advice: You will run out of money. I have heard of some peoples trips being cut short, or they had to move to crappy but cheaper hostels, or they couldn't even do stuff like the Heineken Experience because they couldn't pay to get in! Yes there are free walking tours and you can explore yourself for free, but seeing only the outside and not paying the money to explore further is a half hearted attempt at traveling. Actually, this means you are wasting all this money to experience only the first layer of the countries experience. The best thing you can do is be honest with the amount you believe you are going to spend and try to stick to it. Pay attention to the money, because you need to it fully experience traveling. But then again, don't let the money control your trip because you will figure out some creative ways to save what you have! So yes, you will be spending a decent chunk of change....but its worth it as long as you're smart about it
Iced Turkish Café au Lait (with Vegan Alternatives)
Iced Turkish coffee has been my go-to coffee recipe for the past few months now. I spent a majority of my 20s working behind the counter at Starbucks, and ever since I've been having to brew coffee at home again, I've found myself getting a little too creative with what I can do with my coffee knowledge. I love Turkish coffee. I love the punch it packs, I love the smell of it boiling over my stove, and making it is so much fun. Different from your standard Mr. Coffee machine, it really feels like you're an active and important part of the brewing process, even moreso than with a French Press. If you don't want to have to get a brass coffee pot to enjoy the taste of an iced Turkish latte, you really don't have to! Follow this recipe, and you'll be enjoying a nice and refreshing (and incredibly aromatic) iced latte inspired by the flavors of the Middle East. ------------------------------------ Iced Turkish Café au Lait 1/2 cup milk (or any non-dairy milk. I usually use Silk soy milk, unsweetened.) 1/2 cup half-and-half (or any non-dairy creamer. I usually use Trader Joe's Organic Soy Milk Creamer.) 1 tablespoon sugar 6 whole cardamom pods, crushed 1 cup strong brewed coffee, chilled (I prefer using the Turkish coffee brewing method, which I described in this card: http://www.vingle.net/posts/522373-Making-Arabic-Coffee-Kahwa-at-Home-Bonus-Fortune-Telling-Video -- However, any brewing method of your preference should work for this recipe.) 1. In a small saucepan stir together the milk, the half-and-half, the sugar, and the cardamom pods, bring the mixture to a boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved, and let it cool. 2. Strain the mixture through a fine sieve set over a small pitcher, stir in the coffee, and chill the mixture, covered, for 20 minutes, or until it is cold. 3. Divide the iced café au lait between 2 stemmed glasses filled with ice cubes.
