I'm excited to announce "The Ottoman Express," an upcoming tour of Bosnia and Turkey made possible by Dar El Salam Travel (the same folks behind our Spain trip).
I've designed and will be leading an exploration of Muslim history, the Balkan wars, and Islam in Europe today--Bosnia is beautiful, Istanbul is amazing, and you'll love them both.
If you don't believe me, check out these pictures of our itinerary.
The Ottoman Express starts on July 6 and takes you through Sarajevo, Srebrenica (where we'll visit the genocide memorial and meet the victims' families), and Mostar (where we'll tour a fantastic old town and see some of the most beautiful mosques you can imagine) in Bosnia and then finishes in Istanbul.
