A hard task. Especially if it is about Turkiye and Istanbul, there are so many things to show and say. But here are the most important tree for me :

Istanbul, Yerebatan Sarnici(Basilica Cistern), built in 532 :

Istanbul, SultanAhmed Camii(Blue Mosque), build in 1615 :

Istanbul, the old city that never sleeps :

I love Quebec city for many reasons and you'll surely love it on your next vacations 8)

Image
You have many places on the St-John street to shop , take a drink in a pub or eat in a good restaurant :!: There's also good place to dance in a disco 8)

Image
If you prefer the calm of the Nature , you drive only 15 to 30 minutes to escape the city to breath pure air 8)

Image
And if you're lucky , you'll have the chance to see the northern lights :shock: :!: ( this one taken 35km east of Quebec city on 10 november 2004 )

Enjoy your next vacations in Quebec city , Canada 8)

Dom :)

How about a bit of tranquility on the beautiful lake in northern British Columbia, Francois Lake




And why not try a taste of winter ?
