Istanbul with my son. What do kids like?

What can a kid enjoy in a foreign city? Tasty food and tourist attractions? Bright trams and seagulls, soaring over Bosporus? Different entertainments? A dinosaur park and an enormous aquarium? The photos taken by my son with a rather complex camera Fujifilm X-E1 show he was interested in a leaf captured in a fountain (24

Istanbul with my son. Istanbul Streets

Travelling with a kid is a totally different kind of experience. It's not like travelling around the world on your own. It seems I know all streets in the centre of Istanbul, but it's all different now. Now I'm looking at the city mainly through his eyes. I notice the details I have never seen,

Istanbul with my son. Bye-bye beautiful city

– Bye-bye, beautiful city! – Misha said sadly, when we were living cheerful, decorated for Christmas Kadıköy district. Narrow streets, numerous lights and lots of happy people. Kadıköy is like a separate city for my son. The thing is, we arrived here by ship. And it doesn't matter that it's just another district. It's a

  • Night Istanbul-0

Istanbul with my son. Night Istanbul

I'm used to travelling to the max. To get up at 7 o'clock in the morning, to have an early breakfast and to walk around cities the whole day long. I enjoy communicating with locals, drinking coffee in cosy coffee shops, having lunch in small restaurants, watching sunset somewhere on a shore or on skyscraper

Istanbul with my son. Antalya’s Aquarium

– Dad, dad, look at this small fish! At this very moment, I understood that our Antalya adventure was successful. We survived early getting up, dramatic climate change from +5 in Istanbul to +25 in Antalya and never-ending 3-km walk along a quay, frightening cats and happy passers-by. And then we were rewarded with tangerines

Apart from feeding Istanbul seagulls, I also promised my son to visit a huge aquarium and to watch sharks. There is a nice oceanarium in Istanbul, which was unfortunately closed for a regular check during our stay in the city. But sharks had been already promised to my kid. So all I could do was

Istanbul with my son. Cars museum

To be honest, there are only 2 photos in this post that were taken by me. It's easy to recognize them. They depict my son enjoying his favourite cars, ships and everything that's related to them. If you ask me, how many toy cars he's got at home, I'll say: couple of hundreds. At least.

  • Bosphorus Sunset-0

My son is a very stubborn young man. He wanted to get to Hong-Kong with me badly to see dragons. I don't know why, but he decided Hong-Kong was a city of dragons. But I travelled to Hong-Kong on my own and sent him photos with Hong-Kong dragons and, of course, post cards depicting dragons. And

What can a child do on-board while his father is asleep?

I'm always short of luck when it comes to weather during my flights. I take off and land with heavy clouds almost all the time. Perhaps this is the price I have to pay for my frequent flights. But it doesn't matter; I've got used to it, and just sleep the whole flight long. This

Istanbul – City of Fairy Tales

I've got four favourite cities, where I want to come back again and again to. You can easily define them by the number of stamps in my passport. And today, after I've arrived in my favourite Istanbul, which I visited numerous times before (don't even remember the exact number of trips), I'm overwhelmed with old
