The bridge across the Bhosphorus on which we crossed into Europe and the main shipping lane leading to the Black Sea ports from the Medditterranean Sea

The cathedral of Saint Sophia in central Istanbul. A place occupied by both Christians and Muslims down the centuries.

The Blue Mosque….. a major landmark in Istanbul and a major centre for worship for muslims here in the city


About to cross the bridge into Istanbul , the end of Asia and the beginning of Europe, a real sense of achievment !!!
