A Tale of Two Cities

Sometimes a trip practically plans itself.

We are very fresh from a trip to both Kazakhstan and Turkey; the former because of a conference in Astana, and the latter because our flights routed through Istanbul so we figured we’d stop over and vacation there.

Two more different cities you could not find. The circumstance of visiting both back to back presented a marked study in contrasts: approaches to heritage, tourism, culture, infrastructure and development.

In the coming weeks we’ll be sharing some of the fun, interesting and challenging things we experienced in Astana and Istanbul. Hope you’ll come along for the ride.
