    Liked: super friendly staff that will happily help you with all your trip planning needs, respond to complaints or requests you might have; clean, amazing location; most communal atmosphere of any hostel I stayed in so far as fostered by management

    Disliked: Not a whole lot of space to put your stuff in the dorm rooms, but upon my mentioning this, I think they might already be working to fix this with extra shelves or similar

    Every year I always have a brief reflection on where I was Sept 11, 2001, as I'm sure many do..

    Arrived at the Hostel about 2am today. Shared the transfer from the airport with a lady who had flown in from Chicago so was nice to have company.

    Breakfast in the hostel (cornflakes, baguette, cucumber, cream cheese, tomatoes and tea), gave them some laundry to wash, then headed off to the post office after first finding an ATM. Should …

    Was noisy last night as the hotel is close to a restaurant and my window overlooked the outdoor eating area. Woke up early again so decided to read for a bit. Eventually got up and walked to the little shop on the corner that sold some fresh fruit and basic staples. Bought a yoghurt drink and nectarine for b'fast and took them back my room.

    Costanta to Istanbul

    Lying on the warm sand of Costanta beach eating boiled eggs I was far too comfortable. Almost a week in a cozy hostel had found lazy legs and I wasn't thrilled to continue the push. Rolling my head round at Allan I sighed. It was pedalling, not moaning that would pick at the remaining 800 kms to Istanbul, and so I begrudgingly pushed Allan to the road. A week of impatient riding rolled me down the Bulgarian coast and into European Turkey.

    Spices Then Stranger Nudity

    ... I quickly rectified the issue and while we sat there, there were more than a few moments of nervous girlish giggling.

    Our lady, or matron as this seems the best term to describe her, came back in after about half an our by which time we were covered in steamy goodness and she had reappeared in her bra and underwear. She got us one at a time to sit on the large raised square stone in the centre of the room, that Rebecca told us was called the tummy stone. We each ...
