Turkey is the only country in the world that is part of two continents: Europe and Asia. The best way to experience that phenomenon, and to also to get a nice view of the Istanbul coast, is to take a boat ride on the Bosporus which is the trait that separates the two continents.
It was also was a fun boat ride, filled with friendly Eastern European tourists and a nice Irish couple on their honeymoon. After visiting the Blue Mosque earlier that day, we got a pretty cool view from it as well. It’s not every day that you can say you were in between two continents!
