In one month, Andrew and I will be reenacting the below photo on the island of Buyukada off the coast of Istanbul!! We're beyond excited. We didn't jet set much when we were dating or engaged. In fact, vacations consisted of trips home to Kentucky, Washington or some church, farm, and other wedding venue to witness pals getting hitched (all of which we loved, dear family and friends). But when it came time to plan our honeymoon, we spent hours and hours researching great spots. I honestly think it made the whole experience that much more special. This trip we'll be celebrating Andrew's completion of his first year of medical school! So why Istanbul? It received a glowing review from our lovely friend Laura, plus it's affordable, interesting, and historic. We won't have much time to plan before we go, and while I'm totally fine with being spontaneous, I'd love to know if you have any recommendations. If so, please share!
