Arrived late to our hotel in the old city of Istanbul, with a view over the Blue Mosque and Hagia Sofia, and we just didn’t want to go to bed and stayed up till 05.30 in the morning.
After some sleep we had breakfast at sunrise at the roof terrace with a view. Then back to the room and got some more sleep before heading out for a walk in the sun by the sea, overlooking the Bosphorus and the Asian side of the city.
We’ve longed for a walk in fresh air, without the risk of being hit by a car all the time, and actually having side walks that are clean from trash… So, it’s a lot colder here than in Cairo, but also a lot more organized traffic wise. And cleaner. So this was a great treat!
Fact is we haven’t been able to walk much at all in the past three weeks – so we also sure to book a hotel with a gym here in Istanbul so we certainly will get a lot more excercise the coming days!
We’ve now done our first session in the gym, together with the owner of the hotel!
And to us it’s something very special to work out together, it feels nice to know we both take care of our bodies, can do some excercises together and just help each other stay on track.
