So this here was the highlight of our last day in Istanbul. But what I wouldn’t usually tell you is this, earlier on that I we left the hotel to catch the Bosphorus cruise and I forgot my phone in the cab. We had to catch a cab back to the hotel with the utmost faith that kindness/humanity would prevail and the cab driver would return my phone or the hotel. The ride back to the hotel was tense, 1) I may have possibly lost my phone, 2) I was roaming so we were dependent on my phone for directions, making calls to get around etc. so anxiety levels were high. Thankfully, we got back to the hotel and as we pulled up the cab driver was there waiting for us *look at God*
Fast forward, we’re now running late for the Bosphorus cruise and have to get to the departure point, catch another cab back and buy tickets for the cruise. We make it onto the boat only to to realize 5min later that we took the wrong boat. We then had to take another boat back to the port and find our tour ride. Again, frustration builds. It was hot, we were getting lost, rushing so that we’re not late, all the while both thinking; this was such a bad idea!
Things eventually fell into place and we lived happily ever after. All of his to say, this picture only shows the highlight of this particular day, not everything else it took to get here. We get upset and frustrated at each other for silly things, but I still choose him and he chooses to love the crazy out of me, everyday. Wouldn’t have it any other way, would do this day over a trillion times over •
