Under the radar spots to hit in Istanbul
Napoleon once said, “If the Earth were a single state, Istanbul would be its capital." We can't help but agree. #BlackSeaHunt

Why a travel warning doesn't mean you should cancel your trip from Conde Nast Traveler.
Travel warnings are common and often hyped by the media. Unless there is a current or imminent threat in your destination country, the best choice might be the simplest: Go.

Istanbul is number 3 of 50 most beautiful cities in the world.  I love #Istanbul 
We seek beauty in many forms: through art and architecture; from water views and mountain highs; in its people and its history. This list circles the globe, finding the most beautiful cities from Italy to Iran.

Protravel’s Earl Starkey Featured in Condé Nast Turkey Story - In the immediate aftermath of the recent terror attacks in Istanbul, several news media outlets sought out the expertise of Protravel’s Earl Starkey, who is a recognized expert on travel to Turkey. In a Condé Nast Traveler feature, Earl pointed out that “"Istanbul is a huge city, and I would not be afraid to be in the city – nor would I hesitate to go. The one thing I would say is generally, immediately after an attack like this, security is heightened. Until we know more about this attack, I would recommend people avoid large groups, and assure you that most neighborhoods in Istanbul are safe."
