MOVIES TO SEE IF YOU MISS TURKEY!
We are all missing traveling. There is nothing to replace it really, but movies can help!
We decided to put together a short list of movies for you to watch during the holidays in case you miss Istanbul/ Turkey or if you are planning to visit for the first time next year!
Some of these movies are quiet old and nostalgic, some are award-winning festival movies, some are documentaries and some are easy and fun!
Have your pick and enjoy!
