Today is travel day for the two of us. We’re flying out from Cairo to Istanbul tonight and have decided to stay in a hotel for six nights before flying back to Toulouse in France and our next house sit.
We’ve never been to Turkey and have heard so many good things about Istanbul, so we have payed a bit extra to change our tickets and prolong the layover in Istanbul. It’s fairly cheap to stay in a hotel there at this time of year. And even though it might be a bit cold and rainy, there’s lots to see and explore, we’re planning on going to a hamam (Turkish bath), eat out, enjoy hotel breakfasts, go to the gym, visit the great bazaar, some of the mosques and hopefully find someone local to take us to some of the non-tourist places. We’ll see! Whatever happens is good.
See you around!
