Entre Europe et Asie

A travel blog entry by tibuandtintin


Et voilà, le grand voyage a enfin commencé.

Le premier jour fût consacré aux moyens de transports. Pour arriver chez notre hôte à Istanbul, nous avons pris dans l'ordre: la voiture, le train, l'avion (en Belgique), le métro, le tramway, et le ferry (en Turquie) pour traverser le Bosphore et nous retrouver du coté asiatique de la ville! …

Two hookas and a beer

A travel blog entry by shaeshae88


Jessy and I had planned to get up early and make it to the Blue Mosque before the crowds but tired legs kept us in bed a bit longer and we didn't get there until just after 10am. The line was even bigger than the previous day but the sun wasn't as harsh and it only ended up taking an hour to get inside the mosque. We donned the free cover-up, …

Are you from Paradise???

A travel blog entry by shaeshae88


During the night the phone belonging to the guy sleeping above me on the bunkbed slid loudly down the wall and landed with a clatter. It woke me up and I tried to retrieve it but I couldn't fit my arm between the bed frame and the wall so I rolled over and went back to sleep thinking that'll be his problem in the morning.

At about 6am the …

I give you turkey

A travel blog entry by shaeshae88


The flight from Gatwick to Istanbul on Turkish Airways went pretty quickly. I was sitting next to a retired couple from the Sunshine Coast who gave me lots of advice and were instantly protective of me giving me their contact numbers and numbers of friends they had in Istanbul incase I ran into any problems. Together we braved the throngs of …

Istanbul - positiivne üllatus!

A travel blog entry by tibuandtintin


Esimene päev ümbermaailmareisist läks erinevate transpordivahendite katsetamisele.
Belgias said ära proovitud auto, rong ja lennuk. Muide lennukis anti meile istekohad real 13 - õnneks midagi halba ei juhtunud, aga nalja sai küll palju. Mu kõrvale istus üks noormees, kes hakkas kohe minuga juttu rääkima. Vaatasin talle otsa, ei saanud ühtegi s …

    I would highly recommend Agora Guesthouse for your stay in Istanbul.

    The hostel is clean, dorm rooms large and the staff extremely helpful and personable.

    The free breakfast included was buffet style and had a decent amount to choose from and I really enjoyed the rooftop balcony to chill out on.

    Agora is located a short 3 minute walk from the main street lined with restaurants so you don't have the noise at night but you do have the proximity. The Blue Mosque, Topkapi and Sofya are also within a 5 minute walk from the hostel.

    If I returned to Istanbul I would definately stay at Agora. Great value for money.

    This hostel is super clean, has very great and friendly staff, awsome terasse with great views, really nice breakfast and a lot of backpackers.

    Also, speedy wifi everywhere is a nice touch!

    Seriously, I cannot find anything wrong about the place.
