Travel Photo: The oldest mosaic pattern in AyaSofia


The oldest part in Aya Sofia, originally uploaded by Fun Lilliy.

Aya Sofia was richly decorated with mosaics throughout the centuries. Some were religious or empresses and empress images and other parts with geometric patterns.

Turkish phrase of the day:
Tanistigima memnun oldum / tanishtima memnoon oldam = I'm pleased to meet you

About this blog

I have a passion for traveling and wanting to see the world.. I can spend hours on the web planning my dream vacation and looking up places that I want to go and experience their culture .. When I am actually planning a trip for leisure or for work that’s when the excitement begins and I become alive.. I have a long list of the places I want to see in my lifetime.. and I am hoping that I can fulfill that dream in my life journey.

Bare with me..

I am trying to learn Turkish one day at a time one phrase at a time..
Every day I will post a new phrase at the end of my post. Lets see how much I will learn.
