Hello, and welcome to my blog!
I am Layla.
Born and raised in Lebanon, I spent a great part of my life as a scout, and that is how I became fond of adventure, new experiences, nature, and planning.
After visiting Istanbul many times, and learning the Turkish language, I became well known in my society as “The Istanbul Expert”, finding joy in guiding people around the city. “Your eyes sparkle when you talk about Istanbul“, they say.
Of course, every visit brings with it new ventures. Whether it is a previously unvisited museum or a hidden gem, I plan to see it all.
Driven by the passion to help others and by the love to write, I decided to share my experience with more people through blogging.
Because my favorite flower is the tulip🌷, which is called “Lale” in Turkish and is a main symbol in the Turkish culture, I named my blog “Lale Venture”. After all, it’s all about my ventures in the “Land of Lale“!
So, whether you have visited Istanbul many times before, you are a first time visitor, or you just want to know more about this magnificent city, you are in the right place.
