I got in touch with LOST iN city guides in 2019 and ended up writing the entirety of their Istanbul guide. For this, I selected young and cool creatives and then flew to Istanbul to interview them all in person. I selected and wrote about some of my favorite venues for the neighborhood-guide section, chose a photographer for the showcase, and also wrote the in-depth piece, a kind of emotional round-up of my six years living in Istanbul. I also selected a local author who kindly sent us one of his short stories, which I translated into English. The guide is not comprehensive, it’s more of an editorial appetizer that makes you want to travel to Istanbul and explore further.
