Ah! Is this living good or what: a weekend trek to Instanbul

Istanbul is one of the oldest and most beautiful cities in the world -- and it's less than two hours by Turkish Air from Sarajevo. What was once seeming a faraway and exotic locale has become a weekend jaunt. I pinch myself sometimes and wonder if this time is a reward for something done in a past lifetime -- or a debt I'll happily pay heavily for in the future.
