First Day in ISTANBUL! (Turkey Vlog – exploring the European side & trying lots of Turkish food)

Eric Dremann – Brookings, OR – Worst Host – I have had nothing but trouble with this hosing provider and I have been doing this for 16 years. They deleted my accounts without calling me, only relied on email.

It’s our first first full day in Istanbul! In this vlog we’re exploring the European side of Istanbul, trying some of the local Turkish food & snacks, meeting a few locals, and exploring a few major spots along the way – like Galata Tower, İstiklal Street, the Spice Bazaar, and Sultanahmet!

Hopefully we’ll get to explore even more in the next vlog!

We’ve been traveling full-time for over 3 years! Subscribe to follow along on our adventures! 😀

    Been too long…glad we're back.
    That city is the freaking world in a set of city limits.
    You eat exotic street food outside a Burger King. Awesome message to send.
    The saint our son is named after!!! Wow.
    That bread pillow…just looks so cool.
    That is a beautiful call to prayer…right where you are…maybe we all, regardless of our faith, use such a practice.
    We will be right over for Turkish Delight!

    Awesomeness, you two!

    Very cool 1st day I can believe the Burrito 🌯 like Kaibab for $1.75, and considering they said the Inflation Cost of living when you arrived there. That's very good, meal, and hopefully the added sauce is great too. 🙋👍🕍🏤🕍 was like I could have some coffee ☕ so got some you were in the 🍵 and ☕ shop.
    Great see you are enjoying your stay there. That church ⛪ looks amazing and didn't think they had an elaborate place there for the Catholic Church . The awful 😖 candy lol 🤣👍
    Take care.

    You made this very fast paced, it fits the vibe of the place. And you visited a loooot of sites! Were these all in one day? Wow! What surprised me about Turkey was that I didn't expect any country, other than the US to have their flag shown on every street corner like that.
    Leaving that aside, I really appreciate that you stroked a dog too, and not only cats haha. And yes, they do offer tea almost everywhere. Some of them to making you buy stuff, but most of them just offer something, because that's their style, which is awesome! One of my favourite videos so far! PS: you guys are super sweet!

    You both must have had an amazing time in Istanbul, the architecture is so spectacular, particularly at Sultanahmet Square, such an iconic site 😍 I'm glad you delved into some Turkish snacks too, those Turkish delights remind me of my grandmother! Great video guys, New friend here to support you 🙏
