Turkey is a beautiful country with rich culture and historical background and innumerable religious monuments and Turkish people are very loving and friendly, these were the things which I had heard since my childhood and this was the reason I had always a wish in my heart to visit Turkey once in my life. My wish came true when one day I got an invitation from Mr. Kürşat to attend the InTraders international conference which was going to be held in October 2018 in Sakarya and I immediately decided to attend this. It was a wonderful experience of my life. I was surprised to find that It’s not just a conference but a platform where you become a member of a family. I spent indelible moments, full of fun, laughing, singing and visiting alluring places. I still remembered gala dinner in which Mr. Fahad and Mr. Denis sang together we enjoyed a lot as the nosh-up was fantastic and their song made it memorable. The Sakarya visit was made hilarious by funny jokes of Mr. Bilal and Mr. Faizaan and with the kind hospitality of Mr. Kürşat and with the lovely companionship of Rabia, Ammara and Farhan Bhai. It was no doubt exceptionally memorable.
After Sakarya, we came to Istanbul, the city of historical heritage. When you come to Istanbul you are lost in the mesmerizing beauty and must-see attractions of Blue mosque, Topkapi Palace, Hagia Sophia, galata tower, Bosphorus, princess island and Grand Bazar. Istanbul offers an aura of intrigue and charm that appeals all visitor. It was a memorable and fantastic visit. Turkish people are hospitable I had heard it, but I experienced it well at the house of Ayşe when she invited us at dinner, by the way, she is the sister of Mr. Kurşat, both siblings are equally friendly and caring. Ayşe is now one of my good friends. She arranged a mouthwatering and scrumptious supper for us we really enjoyed there a lot.
In short, this trip was so fantastic and enchanting that I decided to come again here with my entire family and then after 3 months I got in Istanbul again but at this time with a hope to make it our home and I applied for job here and now me and family are here and spending beautiful days within the hypnotizing atmosphere of Istanbul. Alhamdulillah ! ! !
