Traveller’s Tale: Even though it’s an oft seen photograph, this view of Hagia Sophia takes your breath away. Since its dedication, it has served as a cathedral for over 1,000 years, then a mosque for nearly 500 years and a museum now for nearly 80 years.

About We That Travel

Indulging in our memories of journeys far & wide. One caveat: photographic memories and tales to tell are a must. With the song from the Dixie Chicks playing in the background, hit the road! "Hit the highway in a pink RV with stars on the ceiling Lived like a gypsy Six strong hands on the steering wheel I've been a long time gone now Maybe someday, someday I'm gonna settle down But I've always found my way somehow By taking the long way Taking the long way around"
