What to expect

LeonJuly 2019
This is not my first visit to Istanbul, but certainly the most memorable! For the most part this is owed to the amazing experience of having a dinner at the house of Meltem and Ozan. I could not wish for more hospitable hosts and wonderful cooks (thank you Meltem for the food and Ozan for raki and coffee :)). The best Bosphorus views, the finger-licking dinner and wine, all thanks to the wonderful and friendly hosts who I definitely hope to stay friends with and see again in my part of the world! Thank you for such a wonderful evening to remember! Leon And this is something extra from Arina: Thank you very much to Meltem and Ozan for this magical dinner and stunning views from the balcony of their house. A wonderful couple and beautiful people that we were happy to meet in Istanbul! They managed to create a wonderful atmosphere of warmth and comfort. It was awesome to chat and laugh with them, to get to know the city through their eyes and impressions. It is great to make friends in a new city and I hope to meet with Meltem and Ozan again.
