C F Him in Istanbul – Hospitality and Food

IMG_3371

What can I really say about Istanbul that has not already been said many times over? The fascinating history of empires, its past religious crossroads, the connecting point between Asia and Europe and the list goes on and on. Everything from a factual and historic perspective is well documented. In fact, I urge you to check out an article I wrote a few weeks ago on the architecture of this beautiful city. I share quite a few photos of some of the beautiful landmarks and hope you like them.

See, I told you everything that needs to be said from a generic perspective has been said already. However, there are two aspects of my visit I would like to share with you all. This is purely from a personal perspective and can truly say I was blown away them. The hospitality and the food of the Turks is like none other.

Hospitality

I still cant get over the fact that the people of Istanbul were genuinely pleasant. From the airport upon arrival to checking out from my hotel, it was pure joy to interact with such polite and friendly people.

Having worked very hard through the year with no time off, a was looking forward to the perfect hotel where I Continue reading C F Him in Istanbul – Hospitality and Food

Play hard after work: The weekend getaway look

_DSC0063

This is going to be a really short post in terms of words as i want you to focus on this winter look i put together. Without me saying it, it is obvious that the statement piece in this look is the leather bomber jacket. I absolutely love this distinctive jacket by BOSS for so many reasons. The lambskin is soft to the touch, while the polyester lining makes it cosy and warm. The wide fur collar do not only provide added protection from the cold but makes this jacket stand out to complement the winter season.

This look is perfect for your typical Friday afternoon straight from the office heading for a weekend away. To dress things down a bit, you ditch the first half of your suit for the leather jacket, whilst Continue reading Play hard after work: The weekend getaway look
