#TOtoTurkey – The Video

It’s already been two weeks since I was in Istanbul, but it still feels like just yesterday. It was a trip of a lifetime that I was so lucky to share with Jennifer Weatherhead (ELLE Canada), Nicole Wilson (Dainty Girl TO),Valerie Stachurski (Charming Media), Marissa A (Chic Darling), Sabrina Maddeaux (Toronto Standard), Tammy Burns (Travel+Escape) and Tay from Turkish Airlines Canada.

If you missed my daily blog posts of the trip, you can catch up here. During our travels, I also created a short video to share some of the highlights with you! It was filmed by various members of our travel group on a Sony NEX-6 camera. Hope you enjoy it!

*Side Note: Just in time for my trip, I received a pair of Flips headphones, a high definition headphone and speaker in one. You can switch from one to the other with just a simple flip. You’ll get a sneak peek at how they work in the video!

Special thanks to Turkish Airlines, Conrad Istanbul, Charming Media, Lifetime Collective, Nella Bella and Sony for making this amazing trip so memorable for me!

    Okay, I can’t stop watching this. It makes me both so happy to have been there, and so sad that it’s over! Alex, you did a great job putting this video together – totally captures the spirit of the whole trip and our #TOtoTurkey family. And makes me want to go back to Istanbul! (P.S. Hi, Mom.)
