The Hicks in Istanbul {and a little Germany} Part 3

{Only 2 years late}
In preparation for another great vacation to come with some of our most fabulous friends I thought I'd grace this space with a photo dump.
It has been two years since we made the trip to Istanbul and somehow I didn't get around to sharing the rest of these photos.
Our second last day was a rainy one, perfect for a day {inside} the Grand Bazaar.

 I came pretty close to having one of these beautiful lamps mailed home.

 We managed to exit with only turkish delight for family and friends, a spice grinder and these super fun turkish slippers.

 We had much nicer weather on our final day and decided to spend it on the water.

 Next we boarded a ferry to head to Asia.
Little did I know before this trip that the city of Istanbul spans both Europe and Asia.

 We had a chill day on the other side of the water and even had ample park time to keep the littles happy.

 At the end of the day we just had to capture a set of these beautiful stairs.
You can see the exhaustion in these babes.

 Before heading back to Canada we spent a few more days in Germany.
I was so happy to see these roadside tulips.
With spring almost here this photo is inspiring me to beautify our own ugly curb-side patch.
 The bonds these kids made was so fun, we really can't wait to see them again.
 I loved how the big girls insisted again on matching hair.
Just a little chat by the Rhine pictured here.

 And finally, on our trip home, our layover dreams came true.
Instead of sitting in the Frankfurt airport for 5 hours we took a train in to the city to see the sights.
