On the evening of June 28th, Istanbul’s main airport (Atatürk International Airport) was hit by a suicide bombing attack which resulted in – official numbers – 41 dead and 239 injuries. This has been a real tragedy for our country. As Istanbul Tour Studio, we would like to extend our deepest condolences for the victims and their families. In the past few months, the world has witnessed such terror attacks more than ever and we stand together with our friends in Paris, Ivory Coast, Brussels, Beirut and Orlando. As terror globally targets our livelihood and every day life, we all ask similar questions: where is safe nowadays? Should we refrain from travelling?
Have you ever picked up an object from your collection of keepsakes and remembered a specific journey or place you traveled? Or better yet, have you ever gone on a trip and bought some things for your loved ones to share your stories? These little gifts we buy for each other or souvenirs we buy for ourselves are what make those memories come alive, even years after we have traveled to a place. Everytime you use that mug that says “!Beienvenidos!” or “Willkommen!”, doesn’t it take you back to a conversation you had with someone you had at a foreign destination?
