A Bird's View

Dress - Bershka, Jet Set tote - Foley & Corinna, Sandals - Buffalo, Sunnies - RayBan

My big birthday surprise for AC was that I signed us up for a helicopter tour above Istanbul! (I know I'm an awesome girlfriend :) It was exciting and scary at the same time as none of us has ever been in a helicopter before. Even though there were some complications along the way (they moved the departure place to the other side of the city so we had to travel almost 4 hours to get there and back) it was a once in a lifetime experience and I have some pretty nice pics to show you! ;) I basically saw the whole trip through the lens but it was worth it anyways! ( It was not scary at all! :) Have you ever flewn with a helicopter?

no, never been on a helicpoter, but I was flying with a gyrocopter (mini-version of an helicopter but you basically sit in the air) in Costa Rica last November! Loved it as well :)

I've never been in a helicopter that isn't screaming loud! They scare me so much. The one that you went in actually looks quite nice. Especially since you aren't wearing the headphones that double as ear protection :)

your pics are amazing. A helicopter ride, gotta add that to my bucket list. I just got trained in basic rifle instruction this past wknd- gotta say shooting a gun is much harder than it looks in the movies. Next up for me is skydiving! I always enjoy your travels :)
